Synopsis:

New Year's Eve, Monday, 1832 In the hilltop village of Clifton, New Year's Eve 1832 is fine. As dusk falls, farm labourers, weavers, wire drawers and card setters put aside their tools and, in holiday mood, hurry to the Black Horse. Soon the inn is foggy with the smoke of clay pipes and rowdy with voices that brag, joke and gossip. Pints of beer are gulped down greedily, causing James Pease, the innkeeper, a deep feeling of satisfaction - this will be a profitable night. He cannot know - has not the slightest presentiment - of the horror that the next day will bring to his door. Author and historian, ANNA BEST, reopens the file on this long unsolved mystery, set against the rugged landscape of Yorkshire's Calderdale. With the aid of contemporary documents, exhaustive research, and a writer's eye for character and detail, she brings the place, the era and the dramatis personae back to face new lines of investigation. Her re-examnation of the case is both orderly and fascinating.
