The Corpse Road

(1974)
A novel by

 
 
Investigating the latest Jack-the-Ripper-type murder of a young female journalist in London, Detective Chief Inspector Page of Scotland Yard arrives at the forbidding world of the Northern Pennines in the grip of winter.

He probes into the victim's background and learns of the husband who swindled and left her. He meets the rector wrestling with problems of personal responsibility; and the curious members of a religious community at Whelp Castle, whose spiritual leader is mysteriously absent...

Can DCI Page crack the case?

Gwen Moffat's main interests are wilderness areas and the genesis of murder, and all her books have featured one or the other. Moffat has written six travel books and twenty-six novels, including her popular Miss Pink mystery series.
