Murder, kidnap, torture - these are not words usually associated with Britain's beautiful New Forest National Park. But when local author Grant Mason has a heart attack, he makes a bizarre dying wish: he wants his loyal assistant to burn his house down.
The request sets off a chain of events that leads to a huge police hunt for a missing couple and a deranged killer. DCI Jeff Temple and his Major Investigations Team take on their toughest case yet, and in the process they uncover vicious depravity and horror that was meant to lie buried forever.
This is the fourth book by James Raven in the hugely successful DCI Jeff Temple series.
