by Sally Spencer
Feelings are running high in the small mining village of Bellingsworth. There has been a call for further strikes from some of the miners which has caused deep divisions amongst the close-knit community.

Detective Inspector Monika Paniatowski quickly learns that Len had been threatened the night before he died by another old miner in front of numerous witnesses at the local Miners’ Institute. Could he have been killed simply due to the stand he took against further strikes? Or are there more sinister forces at work?
As Paniatowski and her team try to uncover the truth, Monika soon finds that she has problems that lie much closer to home …
