The police are called to a sadistic attack in Spigg’s Wood in the quiet Essex countryside. Meg Rusher, mother of three, and erstwhile kickboxing champion, has shot and wounded one man and seriously injured another. In self-defence, she claims. The men and the evidence at the scene contradict this. DI Hal Hedley and his team investigate, but their discoveries lead to injustice and death.
First in the Elversford Mysteries set in Essex.
