Summary

A thrilling, melodically creepy mystery

Samantha Jaynes took her life in the cold lake. Now Rosie Trimble has done the same. Before they died, both girls claimed they had seen an angel. And they're not the only ones.

A spate of teenage suicides rattles the rural community of Kirkdale, in England's Lake District. Before they died, each of the girls talked about seeing an angel. Is this collective hallucination, or is something more sinister leading these young girls to their deaths?

That’s a question for Dr Alex Ripley, the so-called "Miracle Detective". Brought in to help the police, she finds a community rooted in fear and suspicion, bound by their strange faith, unwilling to help, unable to forgive. Because the people of Kirkdale have buried their dark past once, and they’re not about to let Ripley dig it up again.

The Cuckoo Wood is the first book in the Alex Ripley Mystery series.
