A cleverly wrought mystery that entwines the past and the present together in a moving and completely compelling way.  The hook for the story – a roadside memorial cross – provides a contemporary and realistic feel to the story alongside some well drawn characters.  Sometimes frightening but always completely gripping you’ll soon realise what a good writer Linda Newbery is.

Other titles by Linda Newbery include Nevermore, Catcall, and Set in Stone.
