A Stuga On the Cusp of the Orust Riviera, tucked away next to a hobbit hole in the woods.
Poor Detective Inspector Ted Stratton. He didn't have an easy war, and now he's not having an easy peace. It's 1950, rationing is in force, his relationship with his son is rocky, London is wreathed in smog and he is still devastated by the murder of his pregnant wife, Jenny, five years ago. The last thing he needs is to have to investigate the murder of a young woman and her baby.
