Symbols at Your Door

(1990)
(The eighth book in the David Webb series)
A novel by

 
'A superbly crafted, riveting, page-turner of a read' - Booklist

In the English village of Beckworth, the local residents live in fear.

Five houses have been defaced with the same graffiti.

A grotesquely leering gargoyle's head on the front door.

The vandalism is blamed on the 'Bedworth Bruisers', a gang of local youths who notoriously terrorise newcomers to the village.

As the marked houses becomes targets for break-ins and theft, Detective Chief Inspector Webb steps in.

When the body of Carol Dexter, who has just moved from London, is found floating in a pond, Webb can't help but note that her door was also marked by this strange symbol.

It seems to act as a warning...or as a target...

With three more houses marked, DCI Webb must consider whether murder is the meaning behind the symbols on the doors.

Or is it something even stranger...

Symbols at Your Door is a compelling crime thriller that will keep readers gripped from the first page to the last.
