On the face of it DC Simon Serrailler has had time to recuperate after the violent incident that cost him his arm, and nearly his life. He is back in harness at Lafferton CID, but is spending his spare time high up in the cathedral roof, making drawings of some medieval angels which are being restored. Lafferton is going through a quiet patch, so far as crime is concerned, until one rainy night two local men open their front door to a couple seeking shelter. A serious error of judgment in the investigation puts Simon's reputation on the line and calls into question how full his recovery has really been. In her new role as a private GP, Simon's sister Cat's medical and counselling skills are tested by terrible and unexpected events at the homes of two very different Lafferton women.

My First Susan Hill, it will not be my last. We enjoyed the simplistic writing of the subject making it an easy book to read at the end of a long day. We felt too many characters were introduce at the very beginning but it all came together when we realised this was part of a sequence of books with same main characters. I found the plot interesting and bewildering and we were disappointed with the end. A case not solved, but who knows. A second mystery with Pegwells kept us all guessing Very good we gave it 7.5
