( A Past Murder Uncovered )
Four years ago, Gabriel Ash was working with the British government investigation hijackings in Somalia. But when his wife and sons disappeared, presumably taken and probably killed by pirates, his life fell apart. He has sudden reason to hope when a senior police officer suggested that his sons might still be alive until that officer murdered.
Still there seems to be some link to a local operation, and Ash, no longer a government agent, determined to find it. Meanwhile, his friend Hazel Best has had a tough time of her own. A police constable whose last case ended with her shooting somebody dead, she is just beginning to gain her balance. Hazel and Ash are both are both beginning to take more of an interest in the outside world, when a neighboring archaeologist decides to dig up a curious mound of earth near the ice house on his land. It might be a burial mound, he thinks.
He is, but not the ancient one he expects, it holds the bones of a little boy from perhaps thirty years ago, carefully laid to rest with twentieth-century toys. As Hazel is slowly drawn back into police work, Ash finds himself under threats from someone who must think his investigations into his family’s disappearance is finally getting somewhere.
