Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No one dreamed something so hideous could grow in so beautiful a place . . .

Many who visit the valley are overwhelmed by its majesty. Some wish they never had to leave. One didn't, a hiker whose decomposing corpse is discovered by an unsuspecting tourist. But this strange, incomprehensible murder is only the edge of the darkness that hovers over a small rural village and its tight-lipped residents who guard shattering secrets of sordid pasts and private shames. Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks knows that both the grim truth and a cold-blooded killer are hiding here, far from the city, the noise, and safety. And he's determined to walk into the valley of death to expose them both.

Synopsis:

When a decomposing corpse of a hiker is discovered in a wooded valley outside the tiny Yorkshire village of Swainshead--the second such homicide to plague the region in recent years--investigating Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks is pulled into a dangerous mire of dark pasts, local power, and private shames.

Synopsis:

"Evocative ... intriguing ... emotionally rich."
