About the Edition

Walking a ridge on the Welsh Borders, Robin Timariot meets by chance an elegant middle-aged woman who seems strangely out of place. They exchange only a few words, but those words prove to be unforgettable. A few days later Timariot learns from the newspapers that, just hours after their meeting, the woman was raped and murdered. A man is swiftly charged and convicted of the crime, but a string of inexplicable events begins to convince Timariot that all is not what it seems. Fascinated by the dead woman's memory, he is sucked into the complex motives and tortured relationships of her family and friends, searching against his better judgment for the secret of what really happened the day she died. The closer he gets to the truth, the more hideous and uncertain it seems to be. And far too late he realizes that uncovering the real story could be the last thing he ever does.
