DS Jimmy Suttle investigates a murder in a house haunted by the
past in the latest from 'one of the UK's finest crime novelists'
(INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY) A rich old man, Rupert Moncrieff, is beaten
to death in the silence of his West Country waterside mansion, his
head hooded and his throat cut. His extended family are still
living beneath his roof, each with their own room, their own story,
their own ghosts, and their own motives for murder. And in this
world of darkness and dysfunction are the artefacts and memories of
colonial atrocities that are returning to haunt them all. At the
heart of the murder investigation is DS Jimmy Suttle who, along
with his estranged journalist wife Lizzie, is fighting his own
demons after the abduction and death of their young daughter,
Grace. But who killed Rupert Moncrieff? And what secrets is the
house holding onto that could unravel this whole investigation? The
enquiry takes Suttle to Africa and beyond as he slowly begins to
understand the damage that human beings can inflict upon one
another. Not simply on the battlefield. Not simply in the torture
camps in the Kenyan bush. But much, much closer to home.
