9780002326841: Touched by the Dead

"Robert Barnard plots a mystery as well as any other writer alive." TIME MAGAZINE Two days in May seem to be a high point in Colin Pinnock's life: a stunning election victory, a new government, and a junior office for himself. But among the congratulations is one hostile message, "Who do you think you are?" As Colin investigates he is led back in time to an old political scandal: a murder case which led to a politician's downfall and disappearance. Events in the present, however, start tangling with those of the past, and he finds himself the object of a series of incidents that at first seem designed to bring down his career with ridicule, but later actually threaten his life.

From AudioFile:

The publicity for a newly appointed British cabinet minister brings in its wake a disturbing postcard that reads: "Who do you think you are?" When he investigates, our hero discovers that he, indeed, is NOT who he thinks he is and that he is the target of a murderous avenger. Peter Barnard does a particularly effective and understated job. His characterizations are vivid except for that of the main character. His low, mellow voice, reminiscent of fine old wine, sounds too mature for the 40-something idealistic bachelor.
