Jody Medland’s debut novel is a chilling thriller set in Exmoor, and has earned rave reviews since it was released in 2015. Filled with twists and turns, this is a mystery that will keep you guessing throughout, and its shocking finale will stay with you long after you’ve finished.
The call was disturbing, but as far as investigatory journalist Amanda Connors was concerned, it had to be fate.
Inadvertently, it was the years of abuse during her childhood that led her into journalism and to now receive an anonymous tip-off claiming negligence within a children’s care home offered the chance to finally put the past behind her.
It was the winter of 1972 when she journeyed from London to Devon to pursue the lead, though she would only learn one thing: some secrets are better left buried.
