Two weeks before the big day, Welsh Constable Evans is ready to be done planning for his wedding. Just as he’s unloading the last boxes into the new home he and his bride, Bronwen, have chosen, he runs into a teenager whose girlfriend has gone missing on Mt. Snowdon. Despite his apprehensions about getting involved in a new case, Evans cannot resist helping the worried hiker. A search yields no trace of the girl but does turn up a well-stocked bunker, complete with chains and handcuffs. Are the two related? And if so, where is the girl being held?

When a series of clues is uncovered, Evans and the police begin to see that they are dealing with a clever but twisted mind. Then a second person vanishes and this time Evans knows the victim: Bronwen. He realizes the culprit’s vendetta might be a personal one and that the actual target might have been him all along.

Award-winner Rhys Bowen, whose most recent Constable Evans novel, Evan’s Gate, was a finalist for the Edgar Award for best mystery novel of the year, delivers another charming and suspenseful cozy mystery set in beautiful Wales and starring fan favorite village constable Evan Evans.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 2/10/2014

    " This was a great cozy mystery. Funny and intriguing at the same time. The writing reminded me a little of Maeve Binchy's style. I enjoyed this book from start to finish and look forward to reading more in the series. Even though it seems that I started with #9 in the series, I never once felt like I was missing anything. The characters were fully defined, and nothing was assumed by the author. I was impressed! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 2/8/2014

    " A patron at the library told me about Rhys Nowen's Molly Murphy mysteries, but unfortunately when I went to the stacks we were sadly missing most of them, and some how I ended up picking up one from her series with Constable Evan Evans. I am not one to start with #9, but we are missing so many once I realized it was #9, I was far enough into it that I decided to just keep reading it. I am now a big Bowen fan. This is my kind of mystery--not too complicated, but I loved the Welsh setting and characters and the lack of graphic descriptions and flavorful language. I thought it had a charm to it that I hope I will see in her other books whenever I get around to them! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 12/18/2013

    " An enjoyable mystery with a terrific setting in the Mt. Snowdon district of Wales. The setting is as much a character as the people, and all of them bring this place to life. These are clever little mysteries full of local color. "
