Wycliffe is called in to investigate a fifteen year old death and feels he is on a hiding to nothing. Even when the body is found to be that of an MP's son who disappeared on a walking holiday Wycliffe is not much closer to finding out what happened.
Secrets have a corrosive effect on people and inevitably one of the small group of individuals potentially involved in the death cracks and starts acting strangely. Anonymous letters are flying in all directions and the people concerned think their secret is about to be exposed. Wycliffe puts himself in danger and his colleagues feel they are wading through paper and not getting very much further.
I enjoyed this mystery and it kept me guessing almost until the last chapter. I worked out what could have happened but not who did it. Of course the clues are there when you look back over the book. It is an interesting story which shows clearly how different people react to the stress of knowing something potentially discreditable to themselves and others. If you like your crime novels in the classic mould then you may enjoy this series which can be read in any order.
