    Summary

    Lewis comes back from leave when he and James Hathaway are almost immediately called to a body. There he meets the wrath of Hobson, as for her this is her 21st victim and not the first, as Innocent supposes...

    Who is cutting Oxford's underworld of heroin with an unknown substance? And for what reason? Can Lewis and Hathaway penetrate the murky, sad, desperate world of drug addiction and hopelessness to find what and who is killing off Oxford's addicts, including the Balliol student, son of an US Congressman?

    Meanwhile, will Robbie and James' new relationship survive their living so closely and intimately in so squalid a room while undercover?

    Summary

    “We could...” James’s hands were lying on the table, outside edge down, framing his cup like two parentheses.

    An image of James’s fingers slid into Robbie’s mind. From last night. James’s fingers trailing over his bare skin, leaving sweet, heady warmth in their wake. Robbie shivered.

    “We could pretend it didn’t happen,” James said, and his voice, that sinful baritone that Robbie knew would never leave his head, was low and intense. Thick with...something. Fear? Regret? “Just...go back to yesterday, like last night never happened.”

    Summary

    "What sense is there in pain at all--however we contrive it for ourselves as we cast about for ways to bind up the wound between us and God?"
    -- Anne Carson

     

    He had thought he would talk about the cases. The children lost. The dubious decisions he’d made in order to do his job. Will and Feardorcha and Scarlet and God. He had at least believed he would have a word or two to say about God. Instead, when he’d started talking, he had talked about Robbie Lewis, about the ways he had allowed himself to change as Lewis’s Sergeant, and the ways he hadn’t even realized he’d changed by simply being, wanting to be, needing to be, a part of Robbie’s life.

    Summary

    "Dorset, Robbie?” she enquires, irritably. “Most people choose a climate that shows off one's finery to better effect."
     
    Perhaps nude swimming was something he’d indulged in during his time in the British Virgin Islands. One never really knew with Lewis. Or Hathaway, come to that.

    CS Innocent receives a Boxing Day call from Weymouth police, informing her that two of her officers are the subject of an indecent exposure complaint, and starts to piece certain things together.

    Summary

    Someone—somewhere--was smoking. James Hathaway inhaled deeply and then coughed. Bad for the baby, he reminded himself. He caught his reflection in the Waterstones window—looked like a proper portly gentlemen. Mid-thirties, unmarried, pregnant. Scandalous. He smiled slightly.

    He had never been happier.

    Summary

    "Midway along the journey of our life I woke to
    find myself in a dark wood, for I had
    wandered off from the straight path."

    Dante. The Divine Comedy: Inferno.
    Canto I, l 1-3

    As Spring dawns over Oxford, Robert Lewis teeters on the brink of a New Life; a respected retirement, a new relationship, the prospect of seeing his children and protege set out at last on paths of their own.

    But his nights are spent among the dead, in a prison whose secrets are so long buried all joy, all hate, all grief, all secrets have crumbled to dust.
