The action takes place in a village on the river Severn, and a massive tidal bore is a key plot element. At the heart of the mystery is an ancient silver coffer, which raises questions of ownership, dispossession, and belonging, that go far beyond this one case. It's thoughtful, well plotted, and even a little moving.
