'I read this in one sitting and loved every minute of it. The detective story reads like an episode of Vera.' 5 stars, NetGalley reviewer


No secret can stay buried forever...



As the Whitworth family begin renovations on their new home, their plans are brought to an abrupt end when they discover a body buried in the back garden.


DI Isabel Blood and her team are called to investigate, but as she approaches Ecclesdale Drive, a feeling of unease settles in her gut.


The property cordoned off is number 23. The house she used to live in as a child...


The forensic team estimate that the body has been in the ground for up to forty years - coinciding with the time Isabel's family lived in the house.


Isabel's father vanished without a trace when she was fourteen years old. And with her mother remaining tight-lipped about her father's disappearance, Isabel can't escape the unnerving sense of dread that it's his body, buried in the garden.



Fans of Vera, Val McDermid and Elly Griffiths will love In Cold Blood!
