Boy in the Well: A Scottish murder mystery with a twist you won't see coming (DI Westphall 2) - DI Westphall (Paperback)Douglas Lindsay (author)
- Coming soon
No ordinary detective.
No ordinary investigations.
A twisting new crime series set in the Scottish Highlands. For fans of Stephen King, Christopher Brookmyre and John Connolly.
'A dark and satisfying mystery . . . This one comes thoroughly recommended' James Oswald
The body of a young boy is discovered at the bottom of a well that has been sealed for two hundred years. Yet the corpse is only days old . . .
No one comes forward to identify #Boy9, and DI Ben Westphall's only suspects are the farmers on whose land the well sits. They certainly seem as though they have something to hide. But it might not be what he thinks.
Soon, similarities from an old crime emerge and Westphall must look to the past to piece together the dark and twisted events taking place in the present.
