A classic murder mystery by acclaimed author Bernard Knight.

When some boys find a human bone in a cave in Cardiganshire, Wales, a case that has gone unresolved for over thirty years suddenly springs back into life. For that grisly find is only the start of things...

When the rest of the skeleton is soon discovered, the disappearance of a local woman decades earlier comes back to public attention. The woman's husband has recently returned to the area after years out of the country, and he has no explanation as to why his wife suddenly went missing. The local gossips consider him guilty of murder, as do some in the police force... but not everyone is convinced. It's up to Superintendent Pacey to work out which bits of the whole sorry tale are fact and which are fiction - and there are some unpleasant surprises along the way...
