A serial killer is burning people alive in the Lake District’s prehistoric stone circles. He leaves no clues and the police are helpless. When his name is found carved into the charred remains of the third victim, disgraced detective Washington Poe is brought back from suspension and into an investigation he wants no part of . . .
Reluctantly partnered with the brilliant, but socially awkward, civilian analyst, Tilly Bradshaw, the mismatched pair uncover a trail that only he is meant to see. The elusive killer has a plan and for some reason Poe is part of it.
As the body count rises, Poe discovers he has far more invested in the case than he could have possibly imagined. And in a shocking finale that will shatter everything he’s ever believed about himself, Poe will learn that there are things far worse than being burned alive …
If you are after a great read to get your teeth stuck into, then this is the book for you. First in the Washington Poe series and I am excited to continue the series. I liked Poe and the way he is, he doesn’t take no nonsense and how honest he is. I like the way he is with Tilly, he is almost like a big brother to her protecting her whenever he can. It was lovely to see. I look forward to seeing how they work as a team and also see if Tilly comes more out of her shell. There is lots going on, and there are some pretty gruesome descriptions but I don’t mind that, it makes the story even more detailed when you can imagine it. I cannot wait to continue their story and see what they get up to next.
