Quirky murder mystery set in rural England charting the descent and rise of a detective on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Peter Shand is the 'safe pair of hands' – a high-flying police administrator seconded to a quiet rural CID team. On his second day he’s thrust into a high-profile murder case. A body is discovered in an old stone circle – with another woman buried alive beneath her.
