When a young man moves into a recently inherited Suffolk manor house, he falls into a summer idyll that gathers friends and strangers alike—and concludes in murder

When the new owners of Wyvis Hall go to bury a dear pet dog, they stumble upon a ghastly relic left by the home’s previous occupants: the bones of a woman and a small child, hastily interred. So opens a mystery set in motion a decade before when nineteen-year-old Adam Verne-Smith inherited the property and spent one debauched summer there with friends and a few aimless drifters. While most of Wyvis Hall’s visitors that summer would go on to live respectable lives, two would never leave.
Now, investigators must piece together not only whodunit, but also to whom it was done, in this brilliantly constructed thriller.
