'A remote valley. An unspeakable crime. A prominent architect is commissioned to design a memorial to the victims.
'On the eve of the presentation of the memorial to the public, a blind woman comes out of the rain and into the architect's studio. She is the mother of one of the victims and she demands to be heard. Over the next hour the two women do battle over what it means to memorialise the dead, what it means to be a mother and what it means to believe.
'Like A Fishbone is both a psychological thriller and a haunting puzzle about faith, compassion and the danger of telling the truth.' (From the publisher's website.)
