The body of a young migrant is found hanging from a tree. No signs of struggle. No indication that it is anything other than a tragic suicide. Except for a note, pinned to his trousers, that reads ‘The dead cannot speak’. A murder investigation begins with DI Manon Bradshaw at the helm. But with the other migrants unwilling to speak, and protests on the streets, hatred is starting to drown out the facts. Can Manon uncover the truth before it happens again?

Up on the North Yorkshire moors, the Hartle family is about to have a life-changing year. Ann and Joe's eldest son, Max, is set to inherit their struggling farm, but is he ready for these new responsibilities? Then when tragedy strikes they are forced to come to terms with the past, in order to create a future.
When Detective Sergeant Manon Bradshaw receives a report of a missing woman, she knows the first 72 hours are critical: you find her, or you look for a body. And as soon as she sees a picture of Edith Hind, a Cambridge post-graduate from a well-connected family, she knows this case will be big...
As dusk falls, a young man staggers through a park, dying from a stab wound; DI Manon Bradshaw is horrified to discover that both victim and prime suspect are more closely linked to her than she could have imagined. And as the Cambridgeshire police force closes ranks against her, she is forced to contemplate the unthinkable.
