'This is just my kind of book' - Ann CleevesThe Night Stalker is a compelling crime thriller from Clare Donoghue. Dead Woman's Ditch. The site of a grisly two-hundred-year-old murder – and a recent hit and run. When a young woman's body is found at the macabre landmark in Somerset's Quantock Hills, DI Mike Lockyer and Sergeant Jane Bennett are called in to investigate.
They find a community gripped by fear and superstition. The locals won't venture out at night, believing there's a man stalking the hills; a phantom cloaked in folklore and legend, keeping the sinister legacy of Dead Woman's Ditch alive.
Confronted by a hostile CID team and a murder victim with close ties to their own squad, Lockyer and Bennett will have to accept what they can't see before they can find what's really there . . .
Clare Donoghue reveals how her new DI Lockyer novel The Night Stalker was inspired by a local legend in her home county of Somerset.
