Alice Allevi, giovane specializzanda in medicina legale, ha ormai imparato a resistere a tutto. O quasi a tutto. Da brava allieva, resiste alle pressioni dei superiori, che le hanno affidato la supervisione di una specializzanda... proprio a lei, che fatica a supervisionare se stessa! E lo dimostra anche la sua tortuosa vita sentimentale. Alice, infatti, soffre ancora della sindrome da cuore in sospeso che la tiene in bilico tra due uomini tanto affascinanti quanto agli opposti: Arthur, diventato l’Innominabile dopo troppe sofferenze, e Claudio, il medico legale più rampante dell’istituto, bello e incorreggibile, autentico diavolo tentatore. E infine, Alice resiste, o ci prova, all’istinto di lanciarsi in fantasiose teorie investigative ogni volta che, in segreto, collabora alle indagini del commissario Calligaris. Il quale invece dimostra di nutrire in lei più fiducia di quanta ne abbia Alice stessa. Ma è difficile far fronte a tutto questo insieme quando, nell’estate più rovente da quando vive a Roma, Alice incappa in un caso che minaccia di coinvolgerla fin troppo. Il ritrovamento dello scheletro di un giovane attore teatrale, che si credeva fosse scomparso anni prima e che invece è stato ucciso, è solo il primo atto di un’indagine intricata e complessa. Alice dovrà fare così i conti con una galleria di personaggi che, all’apparenza limpidi e sinceri, dietro le quinte nascondono segreti inconfessabili. Alice lo sa: nessun segreto è per sempre. E chi non impara a tenere a bada i propri segreti finisce col lasciarsene dominare... fino al più tragico e crudele dei finali.

When the body of England's leading batsman, Kenneth Fleming, is discovered in the burnt-out shell of a country cottage, it looks like a clear-cut case of arson. Further investigation reveals an almost embarrassing multitude of suspects for murder: from Fleming's lover to his son, nearly everyone in contact with Fleming seems to have a motive - and an opportunity. Inspector Lynley and his partner, Barbara Havers, are called in from Scotland Yard to help the local police force. They find a torment of twisted familial relationships and broken dreams - and as he brings the murderer to justice, Lynley must bear the weight of his own conscience.
