Publisher's Summary

An irresistible autumnal mystery helmed by a complex heroine, perfect for fans of Val McDermid.

November, 1957: Six teenage girls walk in the churning Derbyshire mists. Their voices carrying across the fields, they follow the old train tracks into the dark tunnel of the Cutting. Only five appear on the other side. 

October, 2014: a dying mother, feverishly fixated on a friend from her childhood, makes a plea: 'Find Valerie.' Mina's elderly mother had never discussed her childhood with her daughter before. So who was Valerie? Where does her obsession spring from? 

DC Connie Childs is partnered up with new arrival to Bampton, Peter Dahl. Following up on what seems like a simple natural death, DC Childs' old instincts kick in, pointing her right back to one cold evening in 1957. As Connie starts to broaden her enquiries, the investigation begins to spiral increasingly close to home.

Shifts between 1957 and Prestent Day-- Meh

No brilliantly narrated. It starts kind of OK as six girls enter a railway tunnel and five come out the other end. In the present day there are a bunch of different threads involving various children and the issues of aging parents. I really wanted to like it but ended up finishing it without much enthusiasm.Don't think I will listen to another.
