"When a house explodes in a quiet Oxford suburb and a young girl disappears in the aftermath, Sarah Tucker--a young married woman, bored and unhappy with domestic life--becomes obsessed with finding her. Accustomed to dull chores in a childless household and hosting her husband's wearisome business clients for dinner, Sarah suddenly finds herself questioning everything she thought she knew, as her investigation reveals that people long believed dead are still among the living, while the living are fast joining the dead. What begins in a peaceful neighborhood reaches its climax on a remote, unwelcoming Scottish island as the search puts Sarah in league with a man who finds himself being hunted down by murderous official forces"--

To my knowledge this is the first of Mick Herron's publisher works,. I had started with his Slow Horse spy series, and while waiting for another novel to appear in that fine series, I went back and read Down Cemetery Road.
This work is a fascinating nascent work by a very fine author. In it you can find the beginnings of his style- quick witted but not nearly as much as the Slow Horse series, convoluted plot twists, and overlapping points of view from the principal characters Perhaps he relies a bit to much in coincidence, but it is a fun read, nonetheless. Herron has a unique way with similes, metaphors and adjectival description that is better used in his later works, but it's fun to see developing in his early novels.
