Synopssis:

The body of an elderly man is found in an abandoned World War Two pillbox beside the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal. With no obvious motive and no credible suspect, DI Nick Dixon starts digging into the victim’s past.
The more he digs, the deeper Dixon is drawn into a case that takes him from the cave systems beneath rural Somerset to the heart of government, and threatens to expose a military cover-up at the highest level.
Blocked by a wall of silence, Dixon must unravel a dangerous conspiracy before the killer strikes again.


Review:

This was actually the 6th book in the sereies, but the first I had read. Dixon is an interesting character, having been a lawyer first, he brings an unique perspective to his job (and dealing with suspect's lawyers!). Dixon  faces a case that seems unique to itself, but as they investigate, ti blossoms into something much bigger and the suspect lists keeps getting bigger. As Dixon and his team roust out the false leads, they realize their initial thoughts were right, but their thinking was wrong. It is an intersting mystery, full of twists and turns, that will keep you turning pages late into the night! I highly recommend it!
