    • Abstract:
      Summary: Twenty years ago, a teenage boy, Callum Hinds, went missing in England's Lake District. His uncle was suspected of having done the boy harm and interviewed by the police. When he committed suicide close to his cottage in the Hanging Wood, everyone assumed it was a sign of guilt. But the body of the boy was never found. Now his sister, Orla Payne, who never believed in their uncle's guilt, has returned to the Lakes...She wants to find the truth about Callum's disappearance, and--at the prompting of Daniel Kind--and, in a drunken call, tries to interest DCI Hannah Scarlett, head of Cumbria's Cold Case Review Team, in the case. Hannah is reluctant, leading Orla to demand whether she cares about justice. Hannah does care, and when Orla dies in strange and shocking circumstances, she determines to find the truth about what happened to Callum--and to Orla."--Dust jacket.

In the new Lake District mystery, DCI Hannah Scarlett is feeling a bit guilty. A woman came to her with a story about her missing brother, who disappeared two decades ago, but lacking anything resembling concrete evidence, Scarlett didn't give her story much credence. Now the woman is dead in circumstances that could point to murder or suicide, depending on how you read the situation. While investigating the woman's death, Hannah reestablishes contact with Daniel Kind, the historian who had suggested the dead woman seek out Hannah's assistance and for whom, as regular readers of the series know, Hannah has some seriously unresolved feelings. As usual, readers will be as interested in the relationship between Hannah and Daniel as they are in the resolution of the case, although this is an especially good mystery, meaty and suspenseful. Another winning entry in a consistently strong series. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.

When 14-year-old Callum Hinds goes missing in England's Lake District, everyone suspects his uncle, who, unable to stand the pressure, commits suicide. Twenty years later Callum's sister raises doubts about her uncle's guilt, but no one listens. Then she falls into a grain silo and suffocates. DCI Hanna Scarlett, head of Cumbria's Cold Case Review Team, begins an investigation that leads to more deaths and an unexpected ending. Edwards's fifth series title (after The Serpent Pool) builds suspense while capturing its characters' rage, anguish, and resentment that complicate the investigation and intensify the danger for all involved. VERDICT With an unforgettable ending, this outstanding cold case will attract Lynda La Plante and Mo Hayder fans.
