In Ravenbank, Hallowe'en is particularly chilling. It is a time for telling the story of the Faceless Woman, her corpse discovered with a makeshift shroud frozen to her battered face. And five years ago, another woman was murdered in exactly the same way. Daniel Kind, a specialist in the history of murder, becomes fascinated by the old cases.
While Daniel attends a Hallowe'en party in Ravenbank, death returns for a third time. The latest horrifying murder presents DCI Hannah Scarlett, head of the Cold Case Review Team, with the toughest challenge of her career. Hannah and Daniel join forces in an attempt to solve the puzzling mystery. But in doing so, both may be forced to confront their own ghosts....

The story starts of well as a good murder but deteriates further along into a long discourse on the lives of people in the story. I like Martin's books but not a fan of this one.
