Paget and Tregalles team up again, this time to investigate the death of an unidentified man found at the bottom of a stone well. The body is badly decomposed, but Pete Foster, who owns the property where the well is located, insists that the man is the ex-husband of his girlfriend, a fashion model who is currently out of touch working in France. Paget and Tregalles begin working on the case, methodically investigating Foster, the man, and the girlfriend. But almost before the investigation gets underway they discover that nothing is what it seemed: Just who is the man from the well? Is the girlfriend really in France? How was Foster's relationship with her? With the help of a bright - and lovely, Paget can't help but notice - young woman from the office of Scene-of-Crimes, Grace Lovett, Paget and Tregalles tear away at the fabric of lies surrounding the lives of these villagers.

All his books are wonderfully written.
A mystery plot is superb, logic of investigation is impeccable, and a style of the writer is superbly intelligent and easy to read. The characters are so good and real, you don't want to say 'good bye' to them ever.
