SINS OF THE PAST Private investigator Annie Raymond is in York tailing shady Surrey businessman and suspected adulterer Damien Marks when she finds herself in the middle of a grisly murder investigation.
The partial remains of a young girl have been unearthed in a farm field.
And Marks is the prime suspect. Annie is certain Marks couldn't have done it, but her efforts to clear his name pit her against two bitterly clashing foes. Cranky, secretive Detective Chief Superintendent Martyn Webber is at odds with Leo Klein, his retired former boss, who feels the case is eerily similar to one he solved ten years earlier. Is a copycat at work? Another fatality, a disappearance and a centuries-old cover-up could obscure the truth Annie is desperate to uncover before another young life is forfeited…and a ruth killer digs her grave.
