Renovation work on a derelict farm uncovers a woman’s body, buried near the house.
She had been buried several years before.
So, who was she, and why has no one missed her?
In this book DS Diane Fry’s future with the Edendale police seems to be a little tenuous when bureaucratic changes are made.
That threat to the security of her current position ought to provide a pathway to the change she’s wanted, and a return to city policing rather than the rural setting in which she’s never felt at home. So why does she seem so unnerved about it?
Stephen Booth again blends a modern day mystery with local folklore and sets it within the harsh winter landscape of the Derbyshire peak district.
