    Chief Inspector Wexford had every reason to remember the Painter case. It might have seemed ordinary to some, but to Wexford it had been remarkable - it was the first murder he'd ever handled on his own. It certainly had been remarkable to Painter, because it hanged him. There had been no real mystery. Painter had done it all right, there had never been any real doubt in anyone's mind. Until now. Fifteen years later, there is someone who wants it retraced and re-examined, someone who wants history changed, the universe disturbed - and Wexford proved wrong

And when Wexford begins to tackle the case, it turns into a maddening labyrinth of blind alleys

    A simple case of a man running off with a woman other than his wife. But when another woman reports that her husband is missing, the case turns unpleasantly complex. The raven: not a particularly predatory bird, but far from soft and submissive, adopted as the symbol of a militant feminist group. Detective Chief Inspector Wexford thought he was merely doing a neighbourly good deed when he agreed to talk to Joy Williams about her missing husband. He certainly didn't expect to be investigating a most unusual homicide. Rodney Williams was neither handsome nor wealthy, but he had an unerring eye for a pretty girl and when he disappeared and two other men were later attacked by a young woman, Wexford couldn't help wondering if there was a connection. If there wasn't, where was Rodney Williams and why had he vanished? He had committed no crime, apart from telling his wife the occasional lie
