Yellowhammer

‘Rounded characters, a terrific sense of time and place and masterful plotting . . . a 24-carat holiday read’ Guardian

July 1983, Essex. Fox Farm is, thanks to two corpses, neither picturesque nor peaceful. The body in its kitchen belongs to eminent historian Christopher Cliff, who has taken his own life. The second, found on the property boundary, remains unidentified.

To catalyze his investigation, DI Nick Lowry enlists the services of DC Daniel Kenton and WPC Jane Gabriel. And the team soon find themselves interrogating enigmatic neighbors, antiques merchants, jilted lovers and wronged relatives.

Only when they fully open their eyes and minds will they begin to unpick a web of rural rituals, dodgy dealings and fragmented families – and uncover not just one murder, but two.
