Brighton, Winter 1951.
It's an eerie scene. Two children lie dead beneath the snow surrounded in colourful sweets. It reminds DI Stephens of a scene from Hansel and Gretel. The book starts on the second day of the investigation, when at this stage the children are deemed as missing.
But it soon turns into a murder investigation once the bodies are found and the children appear to have been strangled.
