The Four Last Things Summary


The Four Last Things (The Roth Trilogy, Book 1) by Andrew Taylor

`Andrew Taylor digs deep to explore the tangled roots of sex, violence and religion. This is a fine thriller, with clues complex enough to tax a Morse' Reginald Hill

Little Lucy Appleyard is snatched from her child minder's on a cold winter afternoon, and the nightmare begins. When Eddie takes her home to beautiful, child-loving Angel, he knows he's done the right thing. But Lucy's not like their other visitors, and unwittingly she strikes through Angel's defences to something both vulnerable and volatile at the core.
To the outside world Lucy has disappeared into a black hole with no clues to her whereabouts...until the first grisly discovery in a London graveyard. More such finds are to follow, all at religious sites, and, in a city haunted by religion, what do these offerings signify?
All that stands now between Lucy and the final sacrifice are a CID sergeant on the verge of disgrace and a woman cleric - Lucy's parents - but how can they hope to halt the evil forces that are gathering around their innocent daughter?

The Four Last Things Reviews


`A tense and shocking psychological thriller, The Four Last Things is also a meditation on what religious belief means in times of extreme crisis, and a fascinating unravelling of the horrors the past can visit on the present.'
Val McDermid

`Taylor has established a sound reputation for writing tense clammy novels that perceptively penetrate the human psyche. In The Four Last Things he goes deeper still... The appetite for the remaining two of the trilogy is firmly whetted'
Marcel Berlins, The Times
