Culchet is everyone’s idea of the idyllic Lake District village, with geese on its tree-shaded green and friendly, well-behaved residents going quietly about their business: Bart Milburn is doing up the Old Hall, the gourmet chef at the pub is preparing for an anniversary party, her friend Alice in the back garden is reviewing a crime thriller, its violence the very antithesis of Culchet as it dozes through an early heat wave. Then, without warning, that peace is shattered. Two deaths occur within a short space of time, both too sudden and unusual to be deemed accidents. And when five-year-old Kim Butler disappears, everyone knows what that means—there has to be a kidnapper, or worse, living a seemingly respectable life in the village, pulling the wool over all their eyes. Panic erupts, vigilante groups are formed, and quietly, insidiously, blackmailers come out of the woodwork. So it turns out that in this pretty, sleepy village where nothing ever happens, volcanic passions are waiting to erupt—driven by a lust for power, for possessions, and for merciless and fatal love

"In a remote Highland glen Ruth Ogilvie, a single mother, is losing the battle to keep her wayward daughter focused on schoolwork rather than the laird's student son. The laird himself however, is unconcerned about his offspring, obsessively pouring all his energies into outshining Balmoral when he opens his wife's castle and grounds to members of the public. But then a string of violent events occur in the grounds and wilderness immediately surrounding the estate, a hit-and-run accident, a discharged shotgun and a suspected arson attack." "Matters quickly take on a much more serious twist - the laird's son and his young lover disappear in a blizzard and a valuable painting vanishes from the castle - but despite all these sinister warnings the laird will not be diverted from his mission to open the grounds on schedule as planned." "It is at the grand opening that events reach a terrible climax with a spectacle of horror and savage justice."--BOOK JACKET

Miss Pink, an intrepid and unconventional murder investigator, is on her way to the remote estate of millionaire Jack Nielsen.

It's the people, Miss Pink finds, who could so with more protection. Soon she is investigating a couple of very puzzling murders, and with all of Nielsen's family and staff as possible suspects. The search for the solution takes her through sandstorm and snowstorm, and up into the mountains twice in pursuit of killers.
