As Nancy Faraday returns to consciousness pain
sears through her head. She is lying on the floor and there is blood around
her. She can see that she is in her boyfriend Evan’s kitchen, and that she is
wearing last night’s clothes, but she has no recollection of how she has ended
up on the floor amidst broken glass.
The discovery of a man’s body in a burnt-out barn in the Warwickshire countryside
is passed for investigation to DI Will Jackman. The barn is on Lawton’s farm
which leads them to Nancy – disorientated, confused and unable to remember
anything beyond dinner with Evan the night before. Only onething is certain: Evan is missing.
Identification of the body proves to be less than straightforward, and
as Will Jackman and his team widen their investigations they find not answers
but more questions and more suspects, who all seem to be hiding something.
Another murder increases the pressure on Will.
With his boss Superintendent Janus on his back for results and his own
dilemma regarding promotion, Will doggedly continues to pursue every lead in
his search for the truth.Then Nancy is
threatened.Can Will find the killer
before there is another murder?
With well-fleshed out characters’ and good plotting this is an
intriguing mystery that kept me avidly turning pages.The many threads are skilfully
drawn together providing a satisfactory conclusion. Highly recommended
