Barnard is one of the current masters of the British mystery. In this novel, the hero (and detective) is a man trying to re-discover his origins. He is one of the children who had been evacuated to the countryside during the London blitz, and he was "unclaimed" when the war ended. He has vague memories of his past, and he is certain that there is something sinister there. He pursues it, and dredges up very dark things. As in most of his books, Barnard is unsparing in his delineation of the seamy side of English culture and class structure. Satiric, but also suspenseful, and a brilliant evocation of wartime London.
