When constable Evan Evans and his new fiancée decide to travel south from home in Llanfair, Wales, to visit his mother in Swansea, they're not expecting the disturb news that greets them on their arrival - the young thug convicted of murdering Evan's father several years earlier is suspected of murder once again. Tried as a juvenile for Evan's father's death, Tony Mancini only served four years in prision. Now he's been accused of killing Alison Turnbull, a local teen and the daughter of Mancini's boss. But when Evan goes to meet the boy face-to-face he's surprised to find not the stone-cold killer he expected but a scared young man who swears his innocence. Against his own wishes, and ignoring his superiors, Evan decides to investigate, at potential peril to his carrer. He believes the boy's claim of innocence, but is his instinct correct, or is Mancini just trying to save himself?

This was an easy relaxing read. Great for rainy day entertainment. I love the small town experiences, country-side descriptions and quirky characters. Read full review
