A GRIPPING MYSTERY FULL OF TWISTS

"A new queen of crime" - E.C.

Please note this book was first published as "THE DEAD DO SPEAK."

Detective Mia Harvey's mother's burial is interrupted by a horrific discovery.

GRAVE DIGGERS UNEARTH THE MUMMIFIED REMAINS OF A PREGNANT WOMAN.

Mia is almost relieved. She would much rather solve a cold case than face her all-consuming grief.

Forensics results reveal the woman's identity - Rebecca Crawford, a successful personal trainer. Though Rebecca's estranged boyfriend is an obvious suspect, Mia wonders if the local vicar and his family know more than they're willing to admit.

Secrets, dark and grief-plagued, are festering beneath the surface of the quiet town of Larchborough.

A KILLER, DRIVEN BY DESPERATE VENGEANCE, WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO PREVENT THE TRUTH FROM COMING TO LIGHT.

DETECTIVE SERGEANT MIA HARVEY
Works at Larchborough Police Station. She is in her late 20s, single and unattached. She would, however, relish a romantic relationship but always puts work first. She is the only child of the late Robin Harvey, former chief superintendent at the Larchborough Division. After his death, Mia swore to follow in his footsteps and make him proud. She tolerates her mother at best. She is professional, conscientious, and has great respect for her boss, DCI Paul Wells, but is not above going against his wishes should the need arise. She is close to her colleague, DC Jack Turnbull, but barely tolerates DI Nick Ford, with whom she clashes regularly.

DETECTIVE CHIEF INSPECTOR PAUL WELLS
6' 5" and gangly, Wells is a brash Cockney with a well-hidden soft centre. A family man who is besotted with his daughters, he dresses well but lacks the finesse to appear anything other than dishevelled. Wells is a master of political incorrectness and cares not. He is a fair man, and a great leader for his team.
