Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the blistering, dry summer, the waters of Thornfield Reservior have been depleted, revealing the ruins of the small Yorkshire village that lay at its bottom, bringing with it the unidentified bones of a brutally murdered young woman. Detective Chief Inspector Banks faces a daunting challenge: he must unmask a killer who has escaped detection for half a century. Because the dark secret of Hobb's End continue to haunt the dedicated policeman even though the town that bred then has died—and long after its former residents have been scattered to far places . . . or themselves to the grave.

From an acknowledged master writing at the peak of his storytelling powers comes a powerful, insightful, evocative, and searingly suspenseful novel of past crimes and present evil.

Synopsis:

After the waters of a reservoir are drained, the ruins of a small Yorkshire village are revealed, along with the bones of a young woman who was murdered at the end of World War II. Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks must identify the victim and unmask a killer who has escaped detection for a half century.
