He found the body on the forty-third day of his walk . . .

Devastated by the senseless murder of his wife, Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley retreated to Cornwall, where he has spent six solitary weeks hiking the bleak and rugged coastline. But no matter how far he walks, the painful memories do not diminish.

Then, at the base of a cliff near a town better known for its surfing than its intrigue, Lynley discovers the body of a young man who has fallen to his death. First a witness, then a suspect when the hand of a killer is revealed, Lynley remains, above all, a policeman willing to aid the gruff head of an understaffed local constabulary in her investigation. But the secrets in this community run dark and deep--and Lynley must somehow find a way to let go of the past long enough to solve a most devious and dreadful crime.

I enjoyed this book much more than her last in this series. I think she returned to her former style of solving mysteries with lots of characters that could be guilty.

Loved it. Thought it was one of her best.

To many unnecessary words & to many characters. Read about half the book & then skipped to various parts and read the last 20 or so pages.

Liked the writer's style, but too long winded. Didn't finish book.
