However, a year later, all the guilt and shame of the park incident re-emerges when a local hermit, Ethan Wright, is murdered with an unusual weapon and left on display in the centre of the village.
For Thomas, the situation gets worse when Detective Sergeant Ann Collins, a colleague from his past, appears to help with the case. But things become complicated when the victim’s identity is put into question.
Who is the victim? And why was he murdered?
Whilst Thomas and Collins find themselves trying to solve the unusual case, they may have more in common than they could have ever imagined.
DI Nat Thomas is traumatised by his inability to save a young woman the previous year and has hidden away in a remote village where he shares his nights with nightmares and his day with ‘What if’s’.
Life in Turtleville is quiet and peaceful. Nothing much happens and Nat is quietly licking his wounds when a dead body is found. Collins is sent to assist in the investigation she doesn’t want to be there and Nat doesn’t want her there.
The book moves along steadily as Nat and Collins work around their differences to try to solve the murder. It is an intriguing story with many twists and turns and a shocking revelation at the end.
I loved reading about the area and having a story set in a snow bound remote village brought a different perspective to the story. Absolutely love Sky she is one amazing kid.
It is a very intriguing read with emotions and history intertwined among the lines of the story. I am looking forward to more from this author.
