Detective Inspector C. D. Sloan is called on to solve the coldest of cases in this thriller from CWA Diamond Dagger winner Catherine Aird Berebury, England, did not have an easy go of it during the Second World War. This quaint Victorian town was destroyed when the Nazis dropped bomb after bomb on its perfect gardens and neat hedges. After three decades of disarray, the town council has finally begun reconstructing what's left. All throughout Berebury, the sounds of hammers and saws drone on. But on this particular day, the noise stops. In the crater of a bomb site, a skeleton has been found. While its presence there isn't unusual--hundreds died in bombing raids throughout England--the manner in which the pregnant girl met her end is sinister enough that Detective Inspector C. D. Sloan and his assistant, Detective Constable Crosby, are called to the scene. The cause of death, it seems, was not the blast, but a bullet to the spine. Inspector Sloan is the best there is when it comes to cracking the most complex cases. But can he piece together a murder that's been buried for more than a quarter century?
