About the book
During a hot summer, drought has depleted Thornfield Reservoir, uncovering the remains of a small village called Hobb’s End, hidden from view for over 40 years. A boy finds a human skeleton, and DCI Alan Banks sets out to uncover the murky past.

A detective story with many sub-plots. The descriptions of life in a very rural village during the WW2 are very good but the other sub-plots seem to muddy the waters a bit. Generally enjoyed.
