Summary

What would it be like to return to your hometown after 25 years in prison for a crime you have maintained you did not commit? And why would you?

Walter Desmond is back in Trafalgar, British Columbia, having been officially exonerated when new evidence showed corruption at worst, incompetence at best, by the Trafalgar City Police conducting the investigation. His pit-bull attorney is seeking five million in damages from the provincial government. But Walt has not returned to Trafalgar to pursue money or revenge. He just wants to know the why of it.

The family of the murdered girl, Sophia D'Angelo, is bitterly determined to see Walt returned to prison - or dead. But for Trafalgar's police, including Sergeant John Winters and Constable Molly Smith, the reality is that if Walter didn't kill Sophia, someone else did. So, case reopened, it lands on Winters' desk. The records are moldering. One investigating officer is dead, the other is retired - and not talking. The police are instructed to treat Walt as if he'd never been arrested or convicted.

Someone else apparently killed Sophia, someone still walking free. But too many minds remain closed. It's good luck for Walt that a group of women in town for the dragon boat race are staying in the B&B where he's booked - women with no local prejudices. But then a townswoman, then a boat woman, are attacked by a rapist, the media gets active, and tempers dangerously flare.

Another wonderful story by Vicki Delany

Gripping story with an outstanding narrator. I enjoyed listening to the excellent performance by Carrington MacDuffie very much. The storline had me sitting on edge, and at times, I had to stop for awhile to calm down.

Great Book

I have enjoyed every book in this series. This book is no different. The characters are well developed and engaging. I found myself really caring about what happened to them in the story. I wish there were more books in this series.
