How do you solve the unsolvable?
DCI Daniel Cockburn has a unique talent for understanding murder. When it’s utterly unfathomable, intractably implausible or just wonderfully weird, he’s the man they send to investigate. He might not be popular, he might not even be liked, but he gets the job done.
Sent to a sleepy English village away from the public spotlight, he begins to investigate a particularly unusual confession and the strange circumstances that surround it.
Now he faces the most formidable case of his career. An improbable suspect, an unexpected infatuation and the occasionally bizarre locals all stand in his way. Against such a challenge can Daniel find a way to piece his life back together and unravel the dark mystery obscured by the idyllic beauty of the English countryside?
