About The Book

A murder investigation unearths the brutal history of a village where long buried secrets threaten a small community.
When psychotherapist Alexis Cosse is found murdered in the playground of the sleepy northern village of Burrowhead, the local police force set out to investigate. It’s not long before they uncover a maelstrom of racism, misogyny and homophobia.
But there’s worse to come. Shaken by the revelations and beginning to doubt her relationship with her husband Fergus, DI Georgie Strachan soon realizes that something very bad is lurking just below the surface. Meanwhile someone – or something – is hiding in the strange, haunted cave beneath the cliffs.

My Thoughts

Do you know what will happen when in a small village a body appears? All the secrets and lies will start becoming exposed and it will make the relations start to tick like a bomb ready to explode!
I’ll admit that I love when a fiction crime is committed in a small place, you can sense all the struggle to continue the life as if nothing happens. How everyone knows the victim and want answers, but at the same time the killer has been living there, and they all know them! So the lies and hate is hiding on every corner ready to appear on any time.
DI George Strachan will begin this investigation with a victim but she will have so much more after a little digging that I am sure she regrets the first moment when everything started! Is never easy when you discover that your loved ones have been lying to you… so George will have her dish quite full for a while, fingers crossed she will know how to solve everything before there’s been more victims!
The story is told in a beautiful prose and descriptive way, Helen Sedgwick is an amazing author and I can’t wait to read her next books, I loved her writing style! The case has an ending, but it leaves so many questions unanswered that I hope this will not be the only case with DI George Strachan on it.
If you are looking for a twisted and dark story centered in a small village, this is your next book. Is a must read! Ready?
