Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Death has come twice to Ravenbank, a remote community in England’s Lake District, each time on Hallowe’en. Just before the First World War, a young woman’s corpse was found, with a makeshift shroud frozen to her battered face. Her ghost – the Faceless Woman – is said to walk through Ravenbank on Hallowe-en. Five years ago, another woman, Katya Moss, was murdered, and again her face was covered to hide her injuries.
 
Daniel Kind, a specialist in the history of murder, becomes fascinated by the old cases, and wonders whether the obvious suspects really did commit the crimes. He spends Hallowe’en at a party in Ravenbank – only to find death returning to this beautiful but isolated spot. Once more, the victim is a woman, once more her damaged face is shrouded from view.

Review:

"Edwards's layered, atmospheric sixth Lake District mystery (after 2011's The Hanging Wood) finds Det. Chief Insp. Hannah Scarlett, who heads the Cumbria cold-case unit, facing budget cuts that threaten to gut her division. To make things worse, her officious supervisor directs Scarlett to choose who goes and who stays. On top of that, Scarlett is adjusting to the breakup of a long-term relationship. Meanwhile, a five-year-old murder — a crime linked to another murder a century earlier — attracts Scarlett's attention. In both murders, which occurred around Halloween, the female victim's head was battered in, with a shroud draped over the shattered facial features. The cases were ostensibly solved, but the deaths of the main suspects before the investigations could truly be joined left some room for doubt. The creepy premise, coupled with a neat resolution, offers hope that this series will only get better." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
