The first fall of snow can be fatal.
A year has passed since DI James Walker cracked his biggest case yet, and he’s hoping for peace quiet this festive season.
But across the fells, a local farmer returns home on Christmas Eve to find footsteps in the fresh snow that lead down to his unused basement – and no footsteps leading away. Days later, his body is found, alongside those of his wife and daughter.
Without a neighbour for miles, there are no witnesses and little evidence. And the crime scene has strange echoes of another terrible murder committed at the farmhouse, twenty years earlier.
James knows that to catch this killer, he needs to solve a case that has long since gone cold…
This was a nice and cosy little Christmas read – well for someone who loves nothing more than crime and murder 😂
It was a lot more subdued than book 1 but equally as thrilling. I had a feeling early on who I thought the killer could be, and did not think it would have been a murder-suicide.
Obviously, I was acting cocky and got it totally wrong.
Although my feeling of the missing baby not being dead was correct, I could not have guessed the events that were due to unfold.
This is definitely a book that will keep you guessing until the very end.
