FAMILY TIES. DARK SECRETS. ONE BRUTAL MURDER.
On a sweltering August Bank Holiday in 1983, the town of Mabon Pryce’s childhood home had much to celebrate – until tragedy struck with the brutal murder of local beauty, Mary Reece.
Haunted by the darkness that shrouds the small town, Investigative journalist Mab returns for the funeral and finds himself drawn into the mystery of Mary’s death.
As he pieces together the events that led to Mary’s death, he realizes that the truth is far more complex than it appears. With each new lead, Mab uncovers lies and secrets hidden deep in the town’s history. With time running out, Mab must confront his own demons while uncovering the truth about Mary Reece’s murder.
Rich with atmosphere, this compelling novel from the author of Welcome to HolyHell and Histories of the Dead marks the start of the Mabon Pryce series.
