by Jim Kelly

Journalist Philip Dryden is shocked to be informed by police that his father has been killed in a car accident – he drowned during the fenland floods of 1977, 35 years before.

At the same time, two unrelated cases are demanding Dryden’s professional attention: a body riddled with bullets found hanging in the middle of a lettuce field, and a couple protesting that the local council has buried their baby daughter in a pauper’s grave without permission. As Dryden pieces the clues together, he realizes that the three cases may be related after all . . .


“Even if they never came up with such a diabolical plot, long-winded colleagues could well take example from the generosity and economy with which Kelly spins his web”

Kirkus Reviews

“A not-to-be-missed book, both for the gripping story and for Kelly’s expressive, engaging writing style”
