A beautifully written new crime thriller you won’t want to miss!

In a quiet village, darkness is closing in…

A rural paradise…

Detective Jake Jackson moved to the countryside for a quieter life. And he finally seems to have his wish – spending his days immersed in nature, and his evenings lazing by the fire.

A terrifying secret…

But the return of an old case shatters the calm, and pulls him into the shadowy world of a secretive group serving the extravagant whims of the elite.

An enemy closes in…

As the web around Jake tightens, he must determine who he can really trust in his small community. Or else he will learn just how far the elite will go to protect their secrets.

MEDIA REVIEWS

‘Loved this. Multiple layers of delight for crime fiction fans’ Lee Child ‘Abell is a skilled storyteller and it’s easy to fall into the pages of Death in a Lonely Place. Highly recommend’ Karin Slaughter 'What a joy to spend time with these characters again! An immersive, intelligent delight with huge atmosphere and heart. My favourite new crime series' Lucy Foley 'A truly fiendish conspiracy, a heroic ex-police officer with a turbulent love life, multiple references to classic crime writing and utterly beautiful descriptive prose that brings Jake Jackson's world to life: it's hard to think of a more enjoyable combination of elements for crime-fiction lovers. Stig Abell's series started out brilliantly and is only getting better’ Jane Casey ‘A darkly elegant, thrilling, escapist slice of countryside crime. I adore this series’ Chris Whitaker ‘I adore the bucolic world of Jake and Livia and Little Sky, so was gripped in this story of conspiracy and deceit as someone tries to take it away. A wonderful tale, magnificently told’ Sam Holland ‘Like fine wine, the series gets better and better as it develops. The narrative carries you along like a runaway train. Beautifully written, as ever, and with a twist that truly knocked me sideways’ Andrew Taylor ‘There a lots of delightful detective-novel references, lots of derring-do in the wintry countryside, lots of evocative insights into Jackson’s appealingly ascetic lifestyle, and a fun and deadly country house set pieces. It is a pleasure to be back in the company of Jackson and co’ Observer 'Very recommendable…another slow burner that amply rewards the reader’s patience and attentiveness' Financial Times
