In the long hot summer of 1976, a group of young people are camping in Wyvis Hall. Adam, Rufus, Shiva, Vivien and Zosie hardly ask why they are there or how they are to live; they scavenge, steal and sell the family heirlooms. In short, they exist. Ten years later, the bodies of a woman and child are discovered in the Hall's animal cemetery. Which woman? Whose child? "I defy anyone to guess the conclusion! The clues are cunningly planted, so that it seems one should have known all along. A most satisfying end" - "Daily Telegraph".

Review text

When the remains of a young woman and a baby are discovered in a shallow grave in a Suffolk garden, some very respectable people begin to panic. What really happened during that long hot summer so many years before? Ten years on, the experiences of a group of students who camped in a Suffolk mansion one idyllic summer are unfolded in horrifying detail, leading to a startling denouement. Barbara Vine on award-winning form. (Kirkus UK)
