Summary
Twin boys run away from their au pair on a trip out into the Oxford countryside around the prehistoric White Horse at Uffington. They race into some woods where they see a man chopping. At first they think he is chopping wood, but what he is holding in his hand is not an axe, and the shape on the ground is not a tree. Suddenly, he notices them and they run for their lives. Their au pair, eighteen-year-old Sylvie, sets off to look for them. In the woods she finds a strange carved stone on the ground. As she bends down to pick it up, she notices a man standing watching her. She, too, runs for her life. But as she looks back, she sees she is being followed. September, 1974. Briony Williams has moved to Oxford. The story begins as she speeds across the city at dawn to the murder site, where Sylvie Bec has been found dead - killed by a single blow that crushed her skull. There are no signs of sexual interference, and the forensic pathologist says he has never seen anything like it
