About this title


The truth can't stay hidden forever... Detective Superintendent Gil Mayo soon finds himself drawn into a devastating case as an arson attack results in a house being burnt down. Much to the distress of the neighbours, it becomes a big concern that two children might have died, trapped inside the blaze. Yet when the fire brigade manages to get inside to inspect the burnt-out remains of the house, the intrigue only increases with what they find. The body of one man... With no sign of the children and the body not providing any answers, Detective Gil Mayo sets to work on a murder inquiry with his characteristic compulsive attention to detail. Never an easy life, another case also falls into Mayo’s lap but despite his best efforts, both cases seem to be tough to solve. With family connections, past lives and secret deals going on throughout, Mayo and his team struggle to grasp the true nature of both crimes. Only when both crimes seem to lead to the same path, from Poland to wartime England and so to the present day, is Mayo able to unravel the truth once and for all... A Sunset Touches is a chilling mystery filled with twists and turns.

Praise for Majorie Eccles

‘Eccles produces smoothly flowing prose and an atmospheric setting’ - Publishers Weekly ‘Superior police procedural’ - Sunday Telegraph "It all makes for lively entertainment, enhanced by the author's forthright style, some resonant characters, a subdued village ambiance, and a puzzle neatly deconstructed but with minimum help from Lavenstock's likeable police team." - Kirkus Reviews Marjorie Eccles lived for many years in the Midlands and she is the author of many other books and short stories, for which she received the Agatha Christie Short Story Styles Award. Eccles’s books featuring Detective Gil Mayo were also adapted for the BBC.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
