I was looking forward to a gripping session with Ty and I wasn’t disappointed. I do love this series.
Ty sets off on a trip to Pembrokeshire to catch up with Afan, a good friend from his past. However, his enjoyment is marred when he arrives and Afan seems to have disappeared.
Afan is living in a remote community that aims to be self sufficient growing their own food and making goods for resale. Remote in every sense of the word, no mobile signal or broadband.
With no sign of Afan Ty sets off for a walk to find an area with mobile signal but finds much more than that, the body of his friend. As the police arrive he finds an injured detective with a broken arm and sprained ankle with a very ineffectual constable to ‘help’.
All the clues point to one of the community being the murderer but who and why? Ty buckles down coping with cold showers and a journey to make a phone call as he tries to uncover the events that led to his friend’s death.
There are many secrets to uncover within this strange group of people but are any of them relevant to the murder?
I loved reading this book the investigation was intriguing and had me guessing all the way through. I loved how Gretta built in descriptions of the area and the people so that I could envisage the scene and character but without including big chunks of descriptive text.
A stunning read that had me guessing all the way through – well worth the 5 stars.
