Synopses & Reviews
Constable Evan Evans scours a Welsh mountainside to find a missing woman—and then copes with the subsequent disappearance of his beloved Bronwen—in the newest novel in this “most enjoyable” series (Dorothy Cannell)…
Mt. Snowdon, Yr Wyddfa to the locals, is crawling with tourists in the summer months. So Constable Evans isn’t unduly alarmed when a young female hiker goes missing for a few hours. She might have taken a wrong turn or even stormed off to hide after a tiff with her boyfriend.
The routine search turns more ominous, though, when the village police find an underground bunker—complete with handcuffs and chains. Now, as he copes with wedding plans and a visit from his disapproving mother, Evans has a serious investigation on his plate, searching for a link between the still-missing girl and the eerie, empty chamber.
And when his own fiancée disappears, the case goes from ominous to terrifying…
Constable Evan Evans is almost done planning his wedding. Just as he is ready to relax, Evans meets a hiker whose girlfriend has gone missing on Mt. Snowdon. A search for the girl yields no trace but instead turns up a bunker complete with chains and handcuffs. Are the two related? And if so, where is the girl being held?
A series of clues make Evan and the police realize that they are dealing with a clever but twisted mind. Then a second person vanishes and this time Evans knows the victim: his fiance. Her disappearance makes Evans realize that the culprit's vendetta might be quite personal-and directed at Evans himself.
Award winner Rhys Bowen again delivers a charming and suspenseful cozy set in Wales.
