A girl’s body is found. Her eyes, ears, and mouth have been sewn shut.
DCI Jack Callum leads the investigation into this gruesome crime which shatters the peace of a sleepy 1950s English town. Images of three monkeys are sent to the police to taunt them: see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.
Something very nasty is going on and more victims come to light. Who is doing this and why? DCI Callum looks like he’s closing in on the culprits, but then a team of detectives from London is brought in to take over the case.
In a breathtaking finale, Callum must race against time, and break his own rules, to save someone very close to him.
If you like Robert Galbraith, Rachel Abbott, Ruth Rendell, or Mark Billingham you will be gripped by this exciting new crime fiction writer. Full of wonderful period detail and twists and turns.
