About the book
A woman’s abandoned corpse is found in a shallow grave in a posh suburb. The death hits close to home for prosecutor Helen West as she and detective Geoffrey Bailey have just moved into a new house within the gated neighborhood where the body was dumped. But tensions continue to rise when the victim is identified as the wife of the developer who built the estates, and all of the neighbors begin to accuse one another. As Helen and Geoffrey dig deeper into the secrets of their sleepy commuter village, they discover a hidden world of passion, envy, and betrayal.
Reviewed by Kings Somborne Reading Group:
Views varied from gripping, well constructed to ‘waste of time’. Post discussion we agreed that Fyfield made good observations on life e.g. neglected children.
