A dedicated man is dead in the Yorkshire dales-a former university professor, wealthy historian, and archaeologist who loved his adopted village. It is a particularly heinous slaying, considering the esteem in which the victim, Harry Steadman, was held by his neighbors and colleagues-by everyone, it seems, except the one person who bludgeoned the life out of the respected scholar and left him half-buried in a farmer's field.Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks left the violence of London behind for what he hoped would be the peaceful life of a country policeman. But the brutality of Steadman's murder only reinforces one ugly, indisputable truth: that evil can flourish in even the most bucolic of settings. There are dangerous secrets hidden in the history of this remote Yorkshire community that have already led to one death. And Banks will have to plumb a dark and shocking local past to find his way to a killer...before yesterday's sins cause more blood to be shed.

I have found that the first book in a series is usually the most awkward. This is not the case here. I found the 2nd book in this series to be long, and lacking the seaminess of a whole story, almost disjointed.

The characters haven't changed, the style basically remained intact, it was just the story itself, long and drawn out, not really going anywhere and it isn't until the last chapter where it finally comes together, but all tool late, because (I as the reader) was hopelessly left behind. Even when it was fully explained and the murders solved, it just didn't seem right, not solidly put together.

I rated this 2.5 stars overall because of its awkwardness and lack of continuity.
