It began with a faceless, maggot-ridden corpse in a tranquil, hidden valley above the village of Swainshead. Or did it really begin with the unsolved murder in the same area over five years earlier? The villagers, especially those who frequent the White Rose, are annoyingly silent.

Among the suspects are the Collier brothers, Stephen and Nicholas, from the wealthiest and most powerful family in Swainsdale; John Fletcher, a local farmer; Sam Greenock, owner of the village's best guest house; and his unhappy wife, Katie, who knows more than she realizes.

When the Colliers use their influence to slow down the investigation and the others clam up, Inspector Banks heads for Toronto to track down the killer. He soon finds himself in a race against time as events rush towards the shocking conclusion.

"The Alan Banks mystery-suspense novels are, simply put, the best series now on the market. In fact, this may be the best series of British novels since the novels of Patrick O’Brian. Try one and tell me I’m wrong."—Stephen King

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riveting! Intricate, tightly woven psychological thriller! Well worth your time to read...and PBS have finally caught on to DCI Banks...so some of Robinson's work will be appearing on the 'tube'. But read the books...even better than the TV shows. BTW....Robinson is now a "writer-in-residence" at a certain Canadian University.....
