Dead Woman’s Ditch. The site of a grisly two-hundred-year-old murder – and a recent hit and run. When a young woman’s body is found at the macabre landmark in Somerset’s Quantock Hills, DI Mike Lockyer and Sergeant Jane Bennett are called in to investigate.
They find a community gripped by fear and superstition. The locals won’t venture out at night, believing there’s a man stalking the hills; a phantom cloaked in folklore and legend, keeping the sinister legacy of Dead Woman’s Ditch alive.
Confronted by a hostile CID team and a murder victim with close ties to their own squad, Lockyer and Bennett will have to accept what they can’t see before they can find what’s really there . . .
Not having read any of Clare’s books before I was intrigued to see what her writing was like. I am starting to read a few crime thrillers so thought I would give this one a go. The cover looks mysterious and the title of the book looks creepy how it is slightly distorted. I read this book within three days and couldn’t put it down. I was captivated into the story the twists and turns made the story for me come to life, I was looking over my shoulder quite a bit. The descriptions were well written, it was certainly creepy but Clare is one to look out for in the future. A brilliantly written book.
