This is an accomplished crime novel by a British writer that has a satisfying level of complexity in the plot. Helen West, prosecutor, was to marry Bailey. Ryan was Bailey's bag carrier. Elsewhere Aemon Connor and Brigid, his wife, bickered. There was an allegation of rape against Detective Sergeant Ryan. Helen West went to see Anna Stirland, a midwife, who had been raped and was not dealing with things well.

Ryan was suspended from duty and denied accesss to his office. A co-worker, Sally Smythe, and Ryan kept a book on cases where they believed the complaint but proof was lacking and critical information was missing. They had begun to theorize that there was a pattern. The author builds for the reader some of such cases as the mystery progresses.

Fortunately Bailey is not content to let Ryan twist under the implication he has committed an offense and Helen has a very deep liking for the truth. They continue to seek answers as a chilling end is reached.
