Mystery fiction. Detective and mystery stories. Everyone brings baggage to a new relationship. Agnes knew her fiance Robin Firth had a failed marriage behind him. Until the night the police called, she had no idea how directly his past would affect her.When his son Mouse is blamed for a fatal car-crash, Robin's fury stuns both the boy and Agnes. Making matters worse are the amnesia which prevents Mouse remembering what happened in the car, and his refusal to believe he was drunk.Then the village church burns down. Mouse hasn't burned anything for years, but inevitably suspicion falls on him. The police inquiry doesn't concern Agnes as much as the interest of a band of New Age travellers in the improbable survival of the church's relic. It's supposed to be a Crusader banner, but that doesn't make sense either. Nor does the behaviour of the man who gave it to St Bride's forth years ago.Reluctantly, Agnes is drawn into events more complex - and more threatening - than she could ever have foreseen.
