But the days that follow prove the doctor dreadfully wrong. A young woman is found murdered not Melanie, but the last person to have seen and spoken to her. A second woman's body is discovered, again not Melanie's, but like her, young and black. A third woman turns up beaten and unconscious; like the others, she is of Nigerian origin. As Inspector Wexford's investigation stretches from days into weeks, it becomes his unhappy obligation to counter the hopes of the doctor and his wife. In Wexford's professional opinion, Melanie, like the other young women, has become the victim of a serial killer with a horrifyingly singular objective.
From the Paperback edition.
A missing black girl is the first clue to a small community's dark heart of racism and violence for Chief Inspector Wexford. The subsequent strangling of a middle-aged white woman and the body of a black girl found in a shallow grave turn his hometown into a shocking, blood-chilling scene of social, racial, and family crimes.
