The body of a well-liked local historian is found half-buried under a drystone wall near the village of Helmthorpe, Swainsdale. Who on earth would want to kill such a thoughtful, dedicated man? Penny Cartwright, a beautiful folk singer with a mysterious past, a shady land-developer, Harry's editor and a local thriller writer are all suspects--and all are figures from Harry's previous, idyllic summers in the dale. A young girl, Sally Lumb, knows more than she lets on, and her knowledge could lead to danger. Inspector Banks's second case unearths disturbing secrets behind a bucolic facade.

I have found that the first book in a series is usually the most awkward. This is not the case here. I found the 2nd book in this series to be long, and lacking the seaminess of a whole story, almost disjointed.

The characters haven't changed, the style basically remained intact, it was just the story itself, long and drawn out, not really going anywhere and it isn't until the last chapter where it finally comes together, but all tool late, because (I as the reader) was hopelessly left behind. Even when it was fully explained and the murders solved, it just didn't seem right, not solidly put together.

I rated this 2.5 stars overall because of its awkwardness and lack of continuity.
