A “suspenseful and supremely engaging” police procedural featuring a detective team investigating ritualistic killings of women in the English countryside (Los Angeles Times).
As winter closes in on the moors, so does death. The body of a young woman is found within a ring of ancient cairns, her arms and legs arranged to look as though she’s dancing.
Now another young woman has been found, savagely wounded and severely traumatized, but alive. Ben Cooper and Diane Fry must unlock the memories trapped inside her mind before more blood is shed amongst the stones. . . .
