Summary:

No one dreamed something so hideous could grow in so beautiful a place...

Many who visit the valley are overwhelmed by its majesty. Some wish they never had to leave. One didn't: a hiker whose decomposing corpse is discovered by an unsuspecting tourist. But this strange, incomprehensible murder is only the edge of the darkness that hovers over a small rural village and its tight-lipped residents, who guard shattering secrets of sordid pasts and private shames. Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks knows that both the grim truth and a cold-blooded killer are hiding here, far from the city, the noise, and safety. And he's determined to walk into the valley of death to expose them both.

    This is a very young Inspector Banks, before he and Sandra were divorced, before his beloved daughter grew up to worry her father to death. At this earlier stage he is unassuming, persistent, thoughtful, drinks and smokes way too much, and his musical tastes are in flux. The crime sort of solved itself, but getting to the end was enjoyable.
