In the Shadow of the Stump


ISBN: N/A Category:


“Suddenly a shape lunged out of the darkness, a large creature, towering above me.  I spun round, trying to whip my gun out of my pocket but it was too late.”

Boston (Lincolnshire), 1904. A local girl is found brutally murdered at the foot of the famous church tower – The Stump (St Botolph’s Church).  With the Fenland town’s normally peaceful air shattered, rumours are rife as to the culprit, from jealous fiancés to bullying landowners.

Inspector Thomas Caphorn is dispatched to solve the murder, his first as a solo investigator.  However, the seemingly straightforward case soon gets muddied like the marshy creeks that separate the town from the sea.

As one of the harshest winters in memory threatens, one thing soon becomes tragically clear: the girl is just the first victim.
