From the Publisher:
Returning to the Yorkshire dales of his youth after his beloved wife dies, composer Chris Lowndes, after discovering that the old house he has just purchased was the scene of a murder more than 50 years before, becomes obsessed with solving the case despite warnings to leave it alone. Simultaneous. (mystery & detective).
In the wake of his wife's death, Chris Lowe, a successful Hollywood composer, returns to his native Yorkshire, to write his long-delayed piano sonata and to grieve. He moves into Kilnsgate, an isolated old home that had once belonged to Grace Fox, who was hanged in 1953 for poisoning her husband. He becomes fascinated by Grace's story and convinced of her innocence. Alternating between scenes of Grace's trial and Chris's struggle to discover the truth, Robinson's haunting stand-alone novel will please fans of his Inspector Banks mysteries and win him new readers as well.


"[F]or an old hand at the crime genre such as Robinson, there are still fresh angles to be found." - Barry Forshaw 09/14/2011

"Robinson manages a melancholy tone without veering into the maudlin, and the presence of [the hanged murderess] Grace Fox permeates every page." 01/02/2012
