A jarful of angels
Santrauka: The remote town in the Welsh valleys was a wonderful, magical - but sometimes dangerous - place in which to to grow up. It was there that Iffy, Bessie, Fatty and Billy experienced a plague of frogs one summer, stumbled upon a garden full of dancing statues, found a skull with its front teeth missing - and discovered just what it was that mad Carty Annie was collecting so secretly in those jars of hers. But at the end of that long, hot summer of 1961, one of the four children disappeared. Over thirty years later, returned detective Will Sloane, never able to forget the unsolved case, returns to Wales to resume his search for the truth. His investigation will draw him into a number of interlocking mysteries, each one more puzzling than the last. Written in a rich, sensuous and lyrical prose style full of the sights and sounds of childhood, 'A Jar Full of Angels' is a mesmerising, evocative - and wholly unforgettable - novel of psychological suspense.
