A family is murdered on Christmas in the same house that had a murder more than 20 years ago.Β  Now what are the odds of that?Β  And what if I threw in that the father murdered in the present day worked at the farm all those years ago?Β  Now are you intrigued?Β  And the daughter from the first murder went missing as a baby and was never found.Β  Could you ask for a more interesting case?Β  I was hooked.

This is a typical British crime novel, focusing on the team investigating the murders in addition to solving the murder.Β  DI Walker is a former Metropolitan copper that moved to the country to get away from something.Β  The comparison between the two murders as told through flashbacks for the older one was an interesting way to follow the progress in the case.

This is the second book in the DI James Walker series and while I haven’t read the first book, I was able to follow along. The case from the first book is referenced a bit in this book, but the author reminds the reader what they need to know.

I enjoyed the book.Β  I can count this as a Christmas read, right?
