Withens is a small village in the Peak District, but it?s no idyll.
Dark and dour, it?s troubled by theft and vandalism, mostly generated by
local family-from-hell, the Oxleys. Now it is the focus of a murder investigation
? a young man?s body has been found on the desolate moors nearby, and the
man is an Oxley.
DC Ben Cooper is trying to crack the case and to do that he must crack
this clannish family. On top of that, his difficult boss, Detective Diane
Fry, is also in Withens on business ? one Emma Renshaw, a student who vanished
two years ago. Some ominous new evidence relating to Emma has turned up,
but her parents are convinced she is still alive and act accordingly ?
and very strangely. So, with one murder and one as yet unsolved disappearance,
Withens? reputation for grimness is growing. And it looks like things are
only going to get darker?
