WAGES OF DESIRE, Stephen Kelly

The second Inspector Lamb World War II mystery (following The Language of the Dead), set in 1941, involves the discovery of a dead woman in the local village cemetery that may be linked to a long-buried secret, who killed young twin boys 20 years prior.  Once again, Kelly draws on the impact of events of the war on village life, revealing a pernicious underbelly of lies.
