To this day, the low, thin wail of an infant can be heard in Keldale’s lush green valleys. Three hundred years ago, as legend goes, the frightened Yorkshire villagers smothered a crying babe in Keldale Abbey, where they’d hidden to escape the ravages of Cromwell’s raiders.

Now into Keldale’s pastoral web of old houses and older secrets comes Scotland Yard Inspector Thomas Lynley, the eighth earl of Asherton. Along with the redoubtable Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, Lynley has been sent to solve a savage murder that has stunned the peaceful countryside. For fat, unlovely Roberta Teys has been found in her best dress, an axe in her lap, seated in the old stone barn beside her father’s headless corpse. Her first and last words were “I did it. And I’m not sorry.”

Yet as Lynley and Havers wind their way through Keldale’s dark labyrinth of secret scandals and appalling crimes, they uncover a shattering series of revelations that will reverberate through this tranquil English valley—and in their own lives as well.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kim | 2/13/2014

    " A very entertaining read. I did sort of guess the motive about half way through, but I still liked it. I almost liked it better than the PBS series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Carrie | 2/11/2014

    " It was ok, not good enough to keep me going in the series, at least at this point... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Sharon | 2/6/2014

    " This was a really intense mystery and a great entry to the Inspector Lynley series of books. It has everything--decapitation, murder of a dog, unrequited love,a missing mother, and an abhorrent individual whose crimes are so horrible they are terrible to think about. I'll get going on the second book very quickly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Aubree Bowling | 2/3/2014

    " I am completely thrilled with this book and excited to have an entirely new series to read. I thought it was very smart and moved quickly but not to the detriment of complicated plotlines and multiple interesting and compelling characters. Can't wait to reAD MORE~ "
