On the surface Joseph Pullman seems to have left his unhappy childhood far behind: as the town undertaker and a council member, he is now a respected citizen of Henderson, Maryland. But Joe's father is in jail for the brutal murder of a young boy and despite his wife's questions, Joe can't - or won't - talk about his past. When his wife disappears, and a woman's severed hand is found inside a glove, Joe decides it's finally time to confront his past: only to discover that his past has beaten him to it...
What the papers say:
"Dignified, damaged Joe is a wonderfully complicated creation" Guardian "Napier is a good writer...the dialogue is spare and convincing and there are flashes of brilliance and insight" Daily Mail "A new dark and disturbing voice" -- Bernard MacLaverty
