The dead cannot speak. But they still have a story to tell.
The body of a young man is found hanging from a tree in Cambridgeshire, a note attached saying ‘The dead cannot speak’. It’s impossible to say whether it was murder or suicide – was he silenced, or driven to end his own life? And either way, who is responsible?
DI Manon Bradshaw is assigned to investigate, but with anti-immigrant sentiment in the area reaching boiling point it becomes increasingly difficult for her to untangle what happened to Lukas Balsys. Are other migrant workers in danger, and will solving the puzzle of Lukas’ death help to save them?
By turns warm and witty, gripping and terrifying, heartbreaking and uplifting, Susie Steiner’s fourth book is both a literary tour de force and one of the finest crime novels of recent years.
