    One thought on “A Small Deceit”

    1. Not one of my favourite Yorke novels. I think I prefer her earlier books. They seemed more gritty with finer distinctions between the classes of Brits. I didn't really take to many of the characters but my favourite was Mrs. Turner, the maid. She was funny, lived the Queen and kept her cool under all circumstances. Oh, and the bad dude should have died - it would have been a fitting ending.

    2. I picked up A Small Deceit after reading Small Hours of the Morning, also by Margaret Yorke,which I had found at my grandparents' house and enjoyed. Unfortunately I didn't find this one near as interesting.The basic plot follows two unrelated men using aliases, one of whom we know is not only a recently released convicted rapist but also a murderer.

The first thing I noticed is how small the book seems, back in the early 90’s some paperbacks could still fit in a reasonably sized coat pocket although the size of the print has decreased to match resulting in a tidy 200 page book.At the centre of our plot is William Adams a cold-hearted killer who sentenced for rape and assault has just been released from prison. He changes his name but when visitin [...]

    6. A Small Deceit by Margaret Yorke A Small Deceit is a book I couldn’t put down. The story opens with William Adams, newly released from prison. As he adjusts to life on the outside he assumes various names, sets up phony businesses to dupe unsuspecting people out of their money and soon builds up a sizeable bank account. A chance meeting at Willow House between Judge Colin Drew and Adams, both of whom are using false names, sets off a chain of events that eventually lead to murder. Yorke’s ch [...]
