Ad description

In the waning months of the second World War, a group of children discover an earthen tunnel in their neighborhood outside London. For that summer of 1944–until one father forbids it–the subterranean space becomes their “secret garden,” where the friends play games, tell their fortunes, and perform for each other. Six decades later, construction workers make a grisly discovery beneath a house on the same land: a tin box containing two skeletal hands, one male and one female. As the hands make national news, the friends come together once again, to recall their days in the tunnels for a detective. This impromptu reunion causes long-simmering feelings to bubble to the surface. Mild-mannered Alan, stuck in a passionless marriage, begins flirting with Daphne, a glamorous widow who was his teenage sweetheart. Michael, lonely and still grieving the death of his wife years earlier, considers contacting his estranged father, still alive at ninety-nine, who gave Michael away after his wife vanished in 1944. Lewis begins remembering details about his uncle James, an army private who once accompanied the children into the tunnels, and whose disappearance the family attributed to the chaos of wartime. As the police investigation sputters, the appearance of the hands threatens to unravel the lives of this circle. Is the truth buried amid the tangled relationships of these aging friends and their memories? Will it emerge before it’s too late? Ruth Rendell’s new novel is brilliantly plotted and psychologically explosive. As the mystery deepens, Rendell shatters the assumptions about age, showing that the choices people make – and the emotions behind them – remain as potent in late life as they were in youth.
