Publisher's Summary

It is 1919, and Great Britain is still struggling to its feet after the First World War. Progress is slow, even in quiet spots like the village of Broughton Underhill. But moving on is impossible when former police sergeant Herbert Reardon returns to the village, determined to finally find out what happened the night that his daughter was found drowned. However, as Reardon begins to investigate, it becomes clear that secrets still abound.

When Edith Huckaby, a maid from Oaklands Park, is found murdered in exactly the same spot, Reardon is convinced that the two cases are linked. As Reardon tries to discover the truth, his suspects and witnesses are painstakingly trying to rebuild their lives, in a world that has been changed forever.

Good but slow

There is a lot of "background" story, which makes it frustrating, as it feels like you're not getting to the actual story. Also a lot of flashbacks.

Long Atmosphere, Short Story

Very slow, good atmosphere, but the actual storyline is so thin, that by the end I didn't care who did what or why
