If you want to disappear, start again, make a new life, a small Irish village is probably not the wisest place to go, since anonymity is not something we do well here. The arrival of someone new is always a cause for twitching curtains and whispered conversations. But here, like everywhere, people have their secrets, and as the local sergeant I'm expected to have my eyes peeled for anything unusual. And I do. Usually. Until I don't, and the consequences are potentially fatal.
