This is a time-slip crime story set in York during the Second World War and in more or less modern times. An old man who once bombed York returns to the city to make amends for what he was party to, and during his pilgrimage is murdered in Guildhall in York. Has he been killed by one of his party or by someone with an ancient grudge? Chief Inspector Sam Rounder investigates, while his private detective brother Rick Rounder falls for a woman he has been hired to shadow and finds himself accused of murder. Can Rick extricate himself and will the brothers ever speak again? And what does a love story from nearly 70 years ago have to do with the present. The secrets kept for a lifetime by old men haunt them to their end.
