Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Constable Evan Evans and his new fiancée decide to travel south from home in Llanfair, Wales, to visit his mother in Swansea, theyre not expecting the disturbing news that greets them on their arrival: the young thug convicted of murdering Evans father several years earlier is suspected of murder once again. Tried as a juvenile for Evans fathers death, Tony Mancini only served four years in prison. Now hes been accused of killing Alison Turnbull, a local teen and the daughter of Mancinis boss. But when Evan goes to meet the boy face to face hes surprised to find not the stone-cold killer he expected but a scared young man who swears his innocence.

Against his own wishes, and ignoring his superiors, Evan believes the boys claim of innocence and decides to investigate, at potential peril to his career. But is his instinct correct, or is Mancini just trying to save himself? And how will he reconcile his actions with his memory of his fathers murder, which has haunted him for so long? Evan Evans is up to the challenge, to be sure, and faces it all with characteristic good humor and the Welsh charm that sets Rhys Bowens successful cozy series apart.

Synopsis:

In this Agatha winner's latest gem, Evan faces a past case that haunts him still--his father's murder.

Synopsis:

In the sixth book of a series by an Agatha award-winning author, Evan must face a past case that haunts him still--his father's murder.
