More About This Book

Overview

Things seem comfortably routine one Ash Wednesday evening in the English village of Hollingthorpe. The regulars have come together to turn the Devil's Stone, the age-old custom of shifting a one-ton boulder in the churchyard. An odd, back-breaking custom that defies logic except that to dispense with it always brings misfortune on the villagers during that year. Yet within minutes of shifting the great boulder that evening misfortune or someone does strike. One of the participants lies beside the stone, very dead and very bloody. The CID Team from the Derbyshire Constabulary thinks that solving the case will be a snap. After all, isn't their boss, Detective-Chief Inspector Geoffrey Graham, right there and a possible witness, one of the stone turning participants? But things are never that easy. No one has seen a thing, including Graham. And those who might have observed the terror aren't talking. Is it fear, the particularly vicious attack, or murmured threats that keep everyone mum? Detective-Sergeant Brenna Taylor and the CID team quickly become embroiled not only in the problems of the villagers but also in a web of deceit. When a red rose is found near the crime scene and WPC MacMillan goes to the wood to investigate, she is attacked, left for dead, beaten in the same manner as the original murder. Has she discovered something in the wood or close to the rose that identifies the killer? In the midst of the murder and missing child investigations Brenna steals a few precious moments with her new boyfriend. Yet, even though their shared time is brief, it hints that they might have a future together, and Brenna begins to wean her emotions from Graham to focus on Adam.But in a midnight, rain-lashed forest, a heart-wrenching episode with Graham threatens to destroy her resolve. And through it all, the killer silently slips into and out of their lives, thumbing his nose at her and the entire CID team, ready to strike again.
