On a freezing day in December 1963, 13-year-old Alison Carter vanishes from her village. Inspector George Bennett is determined to solve the case--even if it is just to bring home a daughter's dead body to her mother. Abridged.
Annotation:
Deep in Derbyshire, a young girl disappears while walking her dog in the woods. A rookie detective is assigned to the case, and must ferret out the truth in a small, inbred, closely guarded community.

Praise

Atlantic Monthly
"Val McDermid...generates not suspense, exactly, but curiosity and, finally, whiplash surprise. Her focus is on the inner lives of her policemen as they come to terms with bottom-of-hell horror and grave error." - Jack Beatty October 2000

New York Times Book Review
"Val McDermid's elegiac study of a heinous crime and its aftermath...is very much in the Jamesian mode, both in its inventive use of the devices of detection and its mournful view of murder as a moral reckoning." - Marilyn Stasio 10/09/2000

Salon
"[P]ossibly the most ingenious mystery I've read... [S]tarts out as a classic English police procedural, then ventures, in the last one hundred pages, into something like pop metafiction, providing a startling new angle on everything that has gone before. It knocked the wind out of me." - Charles Taylor 01/03/2000
