Narrator Julie Franklyn creates a sense of menace and foreboding right from page one, when a body is discovered dangling from the Hanging Tree. Was the death suicide, murder, or the result of a sexual trick gone wrong? The remote rural village is full of suspects--and many unpleasant characters--all of them quite vocal. Reporter Jill Francis and DI Thornhill, an unusual combo, work together to unravel the complex tragedy. In particular, Franklyn's depiction of Dorothy, a well-drawn child character, adds suspense to this disturbing but fascinating story.
