    Jonathan Ford, childless at 43, moves restlessly through other people's lives. From Australia to Europe he pursues a series of ill-fated relationships with the vulnerable and the insecure. In turn he is pursued by his past, whose echoes he finds all around him: in Danielle, a young French poet condemned to perpetual childhood; in the ageing Violet, wickedly irreverent even as she struggles through her days alone in a council flat; in the flawed genius of the painter Malcolm Richardson; in many lives, ordinary and extraordinary, that he changes in the profoundest ways.

    Amid the luxurious surroundings of the Wye Castle Hotel and Country Club, a man is found dead on the course. Superintendent Lambert and Sergeant Hook establish fairly quickly how he died, but discovering who killed him proves a more difficult challenge. The golf course and hotel are set in spectacular scenery beside one of England's most beautiful rivers, with Hereford's ancient Cathedral visible in the distance. In May this incomparable valley is at its best, but it is a bizarre context for the investigation of a brutal murder.

    Lydon Hall is a house full of character, as the estate agent's literature claims. But its many interesting features should surely not include a corpse in the elegant drawing-room? Is this death the suicide it appears to be? The investigation centres upon a tight-knit village community. Both the glamorous French widow of the deceased and the man who lives rough on the moor after a mental breakdown seem to know more about this death than is at first apparent.

    Detective Inspector January David has always put his professional before his private life. But now, as he visits this latest crime scene, his two worlds clash horrifically. Confronted with a ghostly figure suspended ten feet above a theatre stage with blood pouring from her face into a coffin below, it's clear this gruesome execution scene is the work of an elusive serial killer - and the body hanging above is that of the forth known victim. But Girl 4 is different: she is alive - barely. And January recognises her.
