He had seen crimes just as brutal in London, but somehow the murder of a teenagedgirl seemed more shocking to Detective Chief Inspector Banks in the small village ofEastvale. Deborah Harrison was found in the churchyard behind St. Mary's, strangled withthe strap of her school satchel. But Deborah was no typical teenager. Her father was a powerful microelectronicsfinancier who ran the in the highest echelons of industry, defense, and classifiedinformation. And Deborah, it seemed, enjoyed keeping secrets of her own, taunting herfriends with teasing smiles that said I know something you don't . . . a harmlessgame among school chums, but positively deadly in the company of a killer.

4 1/2 stars. The 8th book in Robinson's excellent Detective Chief Inspector Banks series is one of the best ones so far. The body of a young woman is found in a churchyard and immediately they have a suspect. There is much forensic evidence to point to this man and public opinion is vicious about the suspected killer. But Banks isn't convinced they have their man. When the man is acquitted at trial, Banks and his team decide to start over again and look at other suspects. But another girl is killed and more forensic evidence points at the first man. Is he a killer or is someone framing him? Banks and his team set out to try to find the answers. Well written, well plotted and interesting until the last page, I enjoyed this great read.
