Storyline

Dalziel and Pascoe investigate the murder of a priest who had been sent to a local parish to investigate claims of a miracle having occurred nearby. What they find is that church records have also been stolen. When they subsequently find the remains of an 8-year-old girl who has been missing for over 40 years, the case points to Father Tibbings, the local priest who managed a children's home many years before until it was destroyed by fire. The case becomes personal for Dalziel when his dying sister, Harriet Clifford, tells him of a long-hidden family secret. Written by garykmcd

Various lives come together on the border between charity and discipline
11 August 2005 | by PolitePSee all my reviews

Investigating several murders, Andy Dalziel and Peter Pascoe bring to light the dark secrets shared by children "saved" from a orphans home. A priest, who has decided to cover up some of his colleague's crimes, is confronted with the truth at last. The addition of several incidents and accidents to what started out as a simple case, brings DI Dalziel close to pains of his youth and the truth about the past of his mother. The last part, where Dalziel is consoled by the last words of his dying sister - tied into the maze of links as well, is a beauty as such. The more intriguing bit, however, is when the nurse tells Pascoe something just happened before Andy came to the hospital - an emotive scene around a man who is a notorious hard cookie.
