On impulse, Oxford historian Daniel Kind and his partner Miranda buy a cottage in Brackdale, an idyllic valley in the Lake District. Tarn Cottage was once home to Barrie Gilpin, suspected of a savage murder. A young woman's body was found on the Sacrifice Stone, an ancient pagan site up on the fell, but Barrie died before he could be arrested. When the police launch a cold case review, the lives of Daniel and DCI Hannah Scarlett become strangely entwined, as they search for a ruthless murderer who is prepared to kill again to hide a shocking secret.

Nicely written mystery that is mostly about the relationships of the main characters and their backgrounds (a little too much, maybe). Set in an interesting locale (and since the author is an expert on Golden Age mysteries, it contains a map of the area.) A satisfying read with a twist at the end.
