The Dead House
It’s a howling October night. Midnight in a country churchyard. And laid out in an outbuilding is the body of a young woman. There are no signs of violence – but why is she wearing only a thin white summer dress? Why are her legs unshaved? And why is she surrounded by a hundred guttering candles?
Those are the questions that provoke the strangest – and perhaps the darkest – case of Fiona’s career. And, in an unforgettable climax, her investigations come to close in on her so very literally that she wonders whether she’ll ever see the light of day again.
