Back in 1940s wartime Gloucestershire, a young GI stationed at the village of Tolland disappears. Fifty years later a skeleton is unearthed, bearing the GI's name on the dogtag buried beside it. In the search for his killer the fresh corpse of another victim is uncovered. It transpires that this was a blackmailer - but of whom, and for what reason? Keith Tyrell, the fast-track Detective Inspector sent to Tolland, tries to get under the skin of the village and its ways. The repercussions of the GI's untimely death are still felt by some of the inhabitants and the identity and secrets of the blackmailer are destined to shake up the quiet village life.Mystery.
