Megan Rhys is due at a police conference on sex offenders - not a particularly 'nice' subject, but it does mean she can get away from her office at Birmingham's Heartland University and spend a few days by the sea at her grandmother's cottage in Borth. It turns out not to be quite the kind of break she was anticipating when a body turns up, miraculously preserved, in the bog behind the golf course. It seems that her bolthole is no longer a safe haven from the violence that is her stock in trade.
But is the mutilated bogman an ancient or a modern relic of man's inhumanity to man? Only time and the pathologist will tell, but not before Megan's skills in forensic psychology and her unerring gut instinct for trouble are tested to the limits by a ruthless killer determined on revenge for past misdeeds.
Follows Strange Blood, longlisted for the Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award.
"Patricia Cornwell has patented the persona of the doughty heroine who bucks the system...Ashford is closer to her personal demons"
