A Dark Devotion

Grace Dearsden is beautiful, clever and admired. The last person to disappear into the lonely Norfolk marshes in the black depths of winter.

Seven days . . . and still no trace.

With police investigations stalled, old family friend Alex O'Neill returns to the haunting landscape of her childhood. And immediately beings to uncover disturbing new clues.

Each one draws her closer to a family's tragic secret . . .

'At once we are in Ruth Rendell territory: an eerie setting, a web of adultery, deceit, near-murderous envy and cordial detestation . . . a kind of East Anglian Rebecca' Daily Telegraph

'A Dark Devotion is a treat . . . a crime novel with action to keep you guessing until the very end' Daily Mail
