When Constable Evan Evans and his new fiancee decide to take a trip south from their Welsh village of Llanfair to visit Evan's mother, they are met with disturbing news: the young thug convicted of killing Evan's father is accused of murder again. Yet when Evan meets Tony Mancini, he finds, not the ice-cold killer he was expecting, but a frightened young lad who swears he's innocent. Mancini served only four years for the death of Evan's father, but this time, up on a charge of killing Alison Turnbull, his boss's teenage daughter, he could go down for life. Against his own wishes - and those of his superiors - Evan finds himself compelled to investigate. But is he right to believe Mancini? And how can he reconcile his actions with the death of his father? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

They've hardly arrived at Mrs. Evans in Swansea before they get the news. The young man who killed Evan's father years ago has just been arrested for another murder. Called into the hearing to keep him in jail without bail, Evan makes a startling discovery - he thinks the kid is innocent this time. Now he must sneak around behind the backs of the police and his mother to find the real killer. But will he alienate all those he loves as a result?
Normally, I love this series. It's a light, fun excursion to a part of the world I would love to visit. This book was a disappointment, however. The tone of the book is significantly darker then the others in the series, not providing the escape I was looking for. The biggest problem is the plot. It starts rather slowly and doesn't really get rolling until about a third of the way into the book. Then, I had everything but the motive figured out about 80 pages before the end. On the bright side, we get to see significantly more of Bronwen then normal, and her interaction with Evan is some of the best in the series. She definitely needs more page time in future books.
This book has some great moments and fans of the series will certainly enjoy it. But if you're new to this great series, don't start here and don't judge the entire series by this book.

This intense mystery is wonderfully handled, dealing thematically with tension between doing what's right even when that feels terrible. I have enjoyed this series thus far, but feel the last two books have shown more depth and more intensity than the earlier books.
And the plot develops from book to book (the relationship between Evan and Bronwen).
