A derelict house is being demolished when workmen discover the remains of a young girl. Detective superintendent Michael Walker is far from happy at being assigned the seventeen-year-old murder case. When more skeletons are discovered, however, Walker suddenly finds himself in charge of one of the biggest investigations in years.
But when a secret has been buried for seventeen years, the path to justice is more tortuous than ever. Can Walker and his team dig up the truth behind one family and their shadowy past? Or is the truth buried too deep?
