A full length detective thriller with a single simple setting. Action slips between 2009 and 1959.
In 1959, in the remote Longmoor Manor, a young girl called Amelia Pye was found murdered. Arthur Pye, an ex-commando turned communist was the prime suspect. However, his guilt was never proven. In 2009 the long-married Charlotte and Edward Colville play host to the obnoxious Selena Harper and her mollycoddled son Hadley. Hadley, with his unhealthy fascination with murder, fancies himself as an amateur sleuth, and sets out to solve the mystery.
