Adam Dalgleish, needing a vacation, comes to his late aunt's home on the lonely Norfolk coast, which she's left to him, to sort out her things. It's now in the shadow of a nuclear reactor, one focus of this novel. Originally written shortly after Chernobyl, it's greatly affected by that disaster. It's also the story of a serial killer. Dalgleish, unusually, is not the detective on the case, and keeps reminding himself of that. But his logical brain works on it, nonetheless. An interesting perspective. This one has too many characters, too many suspects. Otherwise, an interesting plot.
