It’s another disturbing murder case for DI Huxley! Perfect for fans of Mark Edwards, Angela Marsons, Patricia Gibney and Leigh Russell.



Forget what you think you know…
 

After dealing with the most harrowing case of her career, Detective Inspector Jemima Huxley was pushed to breaking point.

And now another brutal murder case has struck the local community.

A family of five were attacked in their own home. Four are dead – repeatedly stabbed in a frenzied attack – and the fifth, a teenage girl, is in a critical condition.

With the sole survivor unable to provide a statement, it is up to Jemima and her team to unmask the killer.

Was this a personal attack? Who in the family was the main target?

And could the killer be waiting to strike again…?

The shocking start to a compelling crime series you need to read! Perfect for fans of Mark Edwards, Angela Marsons, Patricia Gibney and Leigh Russell.



Why are dead bodies appearing when no one has been reported missing…?

When mutilated female corpses are discovered in shallow woodland graves it becomes apparent that a serial killer is at large

With no one reported missing, no apparent motive and no obvious suspect the investigation proves to be far from straightforward.

As suspicion falls upon those associated with the privately-owned woodland, it soon becomes clear that there are sinister secrets they are determined to hide.

Detective Inspector Jemima Huxley is put in charge of the case. 

But Jemima has dark secrets of her own…

Can Jemima lay her personal demons to rest? Or will the case threaten to overwhelm her?

 

And can she catch the killer before more women turn up dead…?



REVENGE is the first crime novel in a new British detective series featuring DI Jemima Huxley - a chilling serial killer thriller with a dark twist.
