When a faceless body is found in a tranquil valley just south of the village of Swainshead, Chief Inspector Alan Banks soon finds that no one in the village is willing to talk about it, except to say, “Not again.” An unsolved murder from five years before and the unsolved disappearance of a prominent local man’s girlfriend appear to be connected. As Banks delves deeper into the mystery, someone begins to intentionally slow down the investigation. When events take a turn, Inspector Banks must track his killer across the Atlantic and find a way to make a break in the case before time runs out. Fourth in the critically acclaimed Inspector Banks Mystery Series.

A novel of Western justice from the master storyteller of West of the River. It began on the outskirts of Durango, Colorado. A stagecoach was ambushed. A young woman was kidnapped. And one lone witness was foolish enough to trail the attackers and save the girl. That was Lingo Barnes’ first mistake. His second mistake is taking Emily Lou Colter back to his valley. There, he learns about Emily’s father and brother—and about the mine they own and operate. Lingo knows this mine must be the real target of the kidnapping lowlifes. And now they’ve targeted Emily as the perfect means to their end. That will be their mistake. And it will be their last.
