On the morality scale, Inspector Richard Thornhill cannot be considered infallible. His personal secret may not be murder, but it makes a significant subplot. In this claustrophobic novel, the village of Lydmouth is bisected by two rivers. Free spirit Mattie Harris is found floating face down in one of them. Sheila Mitchell uses her voice to great effect in portraying village life in all its social strata. She moves effortlessly from abusive father to wounded unwed mum.
