Visitors have been drawn to the beauty and serenity of the Yorkshire countryside. Some never leave -- like the hiker whose decomposing corpse is discovered in a wooded valley outside the tiny village of Swainshead. It is the second such homicide to plague the region in recent years, and it is pulling investigating Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks into a dangerous mire of dark pasts, local power, and private shames. Because a shocking truth and a cold-blooded killer are waiting there ... and Banks is determined to walk into the valley of death to expose them both.

The title makes THE HANGING VALLEY sound like a Western, but James Langton's broad Yorkshire accents make it clear there are no cowboys here. When a mutilated body is discovered by a hiker in the titular valley, Inspector Banks, formerly of London, must identify the victim. He works with the gruff-voiced Superintendent Gristhorpe, questioning witnesses, including a brutal innkeeper and his traumatized wife. Langton gives most of the women feathery voices, but Katie is made to sound so fragile as to be debilitated. Banks travels to Canada to search for a potential witness, but the voices heard there bear little resemblance to those of actual Canadians. B.V.M. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
