Returning to Elmhurst, many years after his involuntary departure, to attend a civic reception in his honour, Sir Rufus Seward had ignored the maxim that "going back" is not always wise. Summoned after Seward's body is found, a wood chisel protruding from its back, DI Joe Rafferty receives a panicky call from his younger brother, Mickey, who fears he is in the frame for Seward's murder. Keen to confront the bully who made his youth a misery, Mickey had gone to the reception, but then found his tormentor's body - and fled the scene...Rafferty, aware that Mickey had the means, the motive and the opportunity finds himself torn between protecting his family and finding the real killer.
