A novel by

 
 
Sometimes in the most picturesque of places the darkest killer hides.
When young Billy Jones fails to return home, it is hardly earth-shattering news, he comes from a family where he is never missed, almost invisible.
However, when gruesome remains are found it becomes apparent that a savage executioner is stalking the untamed, windswept moorland that surround this northern town.

For DS Lasser the job is slowly grinding him down, the hours are long and more often than not even when you catch the bad guys they walk free.

Despite his frustrations Lasser follows the clues that lead him directly to the Radfield family who once owned great swathes of local land.
When another body is discovered, Lasser comes to realise that someone is playing a vicious game, someone with a burning hatred for the Radfield family.

As the body count rises Lasser finds himself enmeshed in a tangled web of deceit as he tries to unravel the dark, twisted secrets that bind two families. Secrets stretching back over four decades, blackmail and murder reaching out to ensnare the innocent as well as the guilty.
