In 1955, a forensic pathologist encounters a headless body found in a Welsh bog—with a Batman tattoo on the arm—in this mystery full of "great plot twists" (Publishers Weekly). With a new and thriving private forensic consultancy, Home Office pathologist Doctor Richard Pryor is glad to have his partner, forensic biologist Angela Bray, back from caring for her ill mother. Together, they are able to persuade locum doctor Priscilla Chambers to stay on a few weeks longer. Although Pryor is reluctant to start a relationship within his forensic family, he finds himself eyeing both the beautiful and extroverted Priscilla and the cool and elegant Angela. Then, a new case shakes up the quiet resort town of Borth—a body, found in the bog, with its hands tied and the head missing—and all three must work together to solve the strange crime. Bernard Knight is the author of the Crowner John Mysteries series and is a member of The Medieval Murderers. Dr. Knight is one of England's foremost forensic experts. "Will leave readers eager for a sequel." —Publishers Weekly "Retired pathologist Knight combines solid science and culture of the period and an attractive cast of characters in another entertaining entry in the Pryor series." —Booklist
