Summary

A murder investigation unearths the brutal history of a village where innocence has a shifting meaning if you are alive. Or dead. When psychotherapist Alexis Cosse is found murdered in the playground of the sleepy northern village of Burrowhead, the local police force of Georgie, Trish and Simon investigate. Leads take them from Alexis' recent clients to local bullies, exposing a maelstrom of racism, misogyny, abuse and homophobia that has been simmering beneath the surface of the village. Shaken by the revelations, and beginning to doubt her relationship with her husband, Fergus, Georgie starts to realise something bad is lurking under the soil in Burrowhead, while someone (or something) equally threatening is hiding in the strange and haunted cave beneath the cliffs.

Intimate, dark and keeps you guessing.

Just finished this fantastic book and what a ride it was!

The book really draws you into the characters and keeps you second guessing what you think you know.

I feel like many of the books themes are drawn on the current political climate. It’s not something I was expecting but really made me think about how we as a society don’t normally question ourselves or challenge ourselves to grow. It’s easy to give into hate, but luckily we have Georgie pushing forward to fight the good fight.

Very gripping from start to finish, I’d highly recommend to anyone.
