    A policeman is assigned to guard the body of Myra Hindley, after she has died in jail. The long quiet hours in the morgue force him to take a critical look at his own life and his failing marriage.
    Beautiful book of flashbacks to his youth and the beginning of his marriage, when the world was still his oyster. A problematic friendship with a boy in his childhood and his choice to stay on the right side of the law despite the temptation to do otherwise.
    The structure of the book lets you find out more about his life gradually. Because it skips back and forth, things are sometimes exactly as you expected them and sometimes completely the opposite. Falls in the category of quality holiday reading; engrossing but slightly forgettable.
