about this item
‘He could feel it in the blackness, a difference in atmosphere,a sense of evil, of things hidden.’
Amy Snowden, in middle age, has long since settled into a lonely life in the Yorkshire town of Gunnarshaw, until—to her neighbours’ surprise—she suddenly marries a much younger man. Months later, Amy is found dead—apparently by her own hand—and her husband, Wright, has disappeared.
Sergeant Caleb Cluff—silent, watchful, a man at home in the bleak moorland landscape of Gunnarshaw—must find the truth about the couple’s unlikely marriage, and solve the riddle of Amy’s death.
