Genre: Banks, Alan (Fictitious character)
In a remote countryside lane in North Yorkshire, the body of a young girl is found, having apparently been thrown from a moving vehicle. While DI Annie Cabbot investigates the circumstances in which a 14-year-old could possibly fall victim to such a crime, newly promoted Detective Superintendent Alan Banks is faced with a case as cold as they come. Fifty years ago Linda Palmer was attacked by celebrity entertainer Danny Caxton, yet no investigation ever took place. Now Caxton is at the centre of a historical abuse investigation. While Annie struggles with a controversial case threatening to cause uproar in the local community, Banks must piece together decades-old evidence. As each gets closer to uncovering the truth, they'll unearth secrets much darker than they ever could have guessed...
