No one dreamed something so hideous could grow in such a beautiful place.

Many who visit the valley are overwhelmed by its majesty. Some wish they never had to leave. One didn’t: a hiker whose decomposing corpse is discovered by an unsuspecting tourist. But this strange, incomprehensible murder is only the edge of the darkness that hovers over a small rural village and its tight-lipped residents, who guard shattering secrets of sordid pasts and private shames.

Detective chief inspector Alan Banks knows that both the grim truth and a cold-blooded killer are hiding here, far from the city, the noise, and safety. And he’s determined to walk into the valley of death to expose them both.

    " A mystery set in Swainshead where two men were murdered and a young woman has disappeared some years apart. The suspects were all very flawed disturbing characters. This novel was on the darker side, but again well written and plotted "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Ruth | 1/29/2014

    " D. A. Banks character is always enjoyable, as is picturing the setting. Plot was good but got bogged down in the middle, picked up in the end and to control myself not to read the ending first. "

    " Another great book in the Inspector Banks series which keeps you wondering until the end. This book has the added bonus of a trip to Canada. Made me want to visit Yorkshire. "
