No one dreamed something so hideous could grow in so beautiful a place...

Many who visit the valley are overwhelmed by its majesty. Some wish they never had to leave. One didn't: a hiker whose decomposing corpse is discovered by an unsuspecting tourist. But this strange, incomprehensible murder is only the edge of the darkness that hovers over a small rural village and its tight-lipped residents, who guard shattering secrets of sordid pasts and private shames. Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks knows that both the grim truth and a cold-blooded killer are hiding here, far from the city, the noise, and safety. And he's determined to walk into the valley of death to expose them both.

3.0 The Hanging Valley
[These notes were made in 1992:]. Less psychologically serious than Past Reason Hated (though it certainly starts with a gruesome enough corpse), this must have been a real romp to write, most especially the Toronto chapters. You see, the first clue that Inspector Banks & his team turn up to the id...
