When last seen alive, sixteen-year-old Deborah Harrison was on her way home from school. Not long after, her body is found in the local cemetery. A suspect is apprehended and put under lock and key, but Detective Chief Inspector Banks is not convinced. There are too many loose ends: a vicar, accused of sexually harassing a refugee worker, who lies about his whereabouts at the time of the murder; a schoolteacher with a dark secret; a teenage thug who has threatened Deborah and her family with violence.

Editorial Reviews

"A vivid and intricate tale that lingers in the memory."—Yorkshire Post"Cunningly plotted ... The characters have moral complexity and the issues range broad and deep, raising interesting moral questions about bigotry, class privilege and the terrible crime of being different."—The New York Times Book Review"Peter Robinson’s Chief Inspector Banks books just get better and better ... Robinson’s stories are always lyrically written and draw the reader into the world of the compassionate inspector."—Winnipeg Free Press"A standout performance from one of the last and finest masters of the understated British procedural, with plenty of passion to understate."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
