About the Book:
Annie Howarth is living an anxious life in an anxious town. Her mining community in South Yorkshire is feeling the pinch and tensions are running high. Then a murdered girl is found on the moors and the agitation in the community is pushed to a dangerous breaking point. As the wife of the chief of police, Annie should feel safe – her husband William can be secretive, but she’s sure whatever he's hiding is for her own good, isn’t it? But Annie is keeping her own secrets. Ten years ago, the man she loved was ripped from her life in a scandal that still haunts them both, and now his return will put her family, her marriage, even her life, at risk.

My Review:
I would call this book a literary mystery because the writing is so descriptive and beautiful. I especially loved the descriptions of the Annie's home on the edge of the Yorkshire moors. I have read two other books by Louise Douglas and I loved them both...this being my third one is no exception...I am in love with her prose. 

The mystery includes an interesting backdrop of the miners strike and includes issues such as class, dementia, murder and police corruption covered...this book had had it all. The tension mounted steadily and it was a great page turner with a surprising twist at the end. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thank you NetGalley, Louise Douglas and Boldwood Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
