Politician spills his guts ? all over the road! The discovery of Bradley Pine's body off a busy road signals the end of his bid to win a local election. But why would the killer risk dumping the body so publicly? And why should he not only reduce the victim's mouth to pulp, but partly disembowel him? With the election looming, and Woodend's old enemy Marlowe replacing Pine as candidate, Woodend is required to produce a result. Any result!

Chief Inspector Charlie Woodend has big problems. First, Bob Rutter, one of his best detectives, has just returned to work after a nervous breakdown following a torrid affair with a colleague and the savage murder of his wife. Can Rutter handle the job, or is he too mentally fragile? Then there's Detective Monika Paniatowski, who had the affair with Rutter. Can the pair work together and forget about the past? But these problems pale in comparison with Woodend's latest case. Political candidate Brad Pine, a local businessman, has been brutally murdered, and his murder seems to hinge on an event from years earlier, when Pine and two friends were stuck in a mountain blizzard; only Pine and one of his pals survived. What happened on the mountain that could have resulted in Pine's murder? A solid, well-plotted British procedural that will entertain both fans of this fine series and procedural addicts in general.
