Summary

Two hundred years since Emily Brontë's birth comes The Heights: a modern retelling of Wuthering Heights set in 1980s Yorkshire.

The searchers took several hours to find the body, even though they knew roughly where to look. The whole hillside had collapsed, and there was water running off the moors and over the slick black rubble. The boy, they knew, was beyond their help.

This was a recovery, not a rescue.

A grim discovery brings DCI Lockwood to Gimmerton's Heights Estate - a bleak patch of Yorkshire he thought he'd left behind for good. There, he must do the unthinkable and ask questions about the notorious Earnshaw family.

Decades may have passed since Maggie closed the pits and the Earnshaws ran riot - but old wounds remain raw. And, against his better judgment, DCI Lockwood is soon drawn into a story.

A story of an untameable boy, terrible rage, and two families ripped apart. A story of passion, obsession and dark acts of revenge. And of beautiful Cathy Earnshaw - who now lies buried under cold white marble in the shadow of the moors.
