Summary
Through the years of success in Hollywood composing music for the world's most lauded films, Chris always promised his wife they would return to the Yorkshire Dales one day. Now, after his wife's death, Chris feels he must not forget his promise. Back in the Dales, he rents an isolated house that will allow him the space to come to terms with his grief and the quiet to allow him to compose his piano sonata. But when he finds that the house was the scene of a murder in the 1950s, and that the convicted murderer was one of the last women hanged in England, he finds himself increasingly distracted by the events of sixty years
Summary
Chris, a film composer and widower, returns to the Yorkshire Dales to grieve his wife and write his piano sonata. He soon finds himself distracted, though, when he discovers that a murder was committed in his rented house by a woman who was one of the last women hanged in England.
