Award-winning mystery author Robert Barnard looks back in time to produce a riveting tale about a long-ago crime.Matt Harper, a television and radio personality and former professional soccer player, has just bought Elderholm, an old stone house in Leeds. It's the perfect place for Matt, his partner Aileen, and her three children. Or is it? Matt begins to wonder after a routine tour of the property leads to the discovery of a tiny child's skeleton in the attic.An investigation reveals the skeleton is at least thirty years old. Matt remembers the time, the summer of 1969. It was the summer he spent with his aunt in the very same neighborhood -- the summer that the previous owner of Elderholm left her house empty while she visited her daughter in Australia. As Matt struggles to recover his memory of that strange summer, he winds up with more questions than answers. What really happened that summer? Who killed the little child and why was she never reported missing? And who wrote Matt an anonymous letter assuring Matt that he had nothing to do with what occurred?

Interesting premise, light mystery, easy read, nice flow. After spending time in old houses like this it's easy to imagine a similar situation. No bad language, no gore, car chases, etc.
