A month into construction of a new subdivision, an excavator unearths two long-dead bodies. An investigation leads police to a woman who left 30 years earlier to start a new life with her lover. Or did she? Amid the threat of outsourcing, DCI Maude Wakefield and DS Edie Yorke struggle to uncover a link between the past and present before the murderer strikes again.
