No one dreamed something so hideous could grow in so beautiful a place . . .

Many who visit the valley are overwhelmed by its majesty. Some wish they never had to leave. One didn't, a hiker whose decomposing corpse is discovered by an unsuspecting tourist. But this strange, incomprehensible murder is only the edge of the darkness that hovers over a small rural village and its tight-lipped residents who guard shattering secrets of sordid pasts and private shames. Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks knows that both the grim truth and a cold-blooded killer are hiding here, far from the city, the noise, and safety. And he's determined to walk into the valley of death to expose them both.

I've read 12 of the 20 Banks novels and this is the best one so far. Great ending!

I am a fan of the Inspector Banks series but this is not one of the best. The plot is a bit too predictable and characters are not likable. I did not really care who got murdered or why. But it is still an enjoyable read with some unusual twists of plot so don't pass up the opportunity to borrow the book, just don't expect it to be the best.
