Publisher's Summary

Constable Evan Evans, sole police officer in the charming Welsh village of Llanfair, is assigned to assist an expedition to raise a World War II German bomber plane from a lake. The whole venture is being filmed for a documentary on World War II and Evans tries to assist the film crew by finding them local people with stories to tell. Little does he realize that resurrecting the past can sometimes mean opening old wounds. After some unhappy confrontations, it is not just the villagers who are upset by the filmmakers. Evans' own life is thrown into turmoil as he discovers his girlfriend Bronwen's past relationship with someone from the film crew.

Tensions build until one of the filmmakers disappears and is eventually found dead in a nearby slate mine. The case grows more complex as Evans slowly uncovers evidence that the victim had many enemies. In the process Evans also exposes an elaborate World War II scheme to hide paintings from the National Gallery. Do these paintings have something to do with the filmmaker's disappearance? How could he be connected to events that took place more than half a century ago?

With this fifth addition to her critically acclaimed series, Rhys Bowen creates a colorful, thrilling mystery set in two eras against the backdrop of a uniquely appealing small town filled with unforgettable characters.

As expected, a wonderful story, well told

As expected, a wonderful story, well told. Bowen writes so well, tells such good stories, and has a narrator who does a splendid job.

FAVORITE ONE!!

Most of these are borderline cozy mysteries . With all the fun , shenanigans and who done it . I am really enjoying this series . From the locals with all their quirks to the dueling church marquees , which by now I look forward to hearing what they say with as much anticipation as the first lick of an ice cream cone on a sunny summer day. This story had more depth than the others with duel stories, past and present that really held my interest. I never have reread or listened to a " cozy" mystery before but I believe I will want to spend time with Constable Evans and friends more than once.
