Publisher's Summary

The moor is darkening. Lorne feels it in his bones.

His instincts, honed by years on the battlefields of the desert, scream in warning. Or is it the monster in his head?

When Detective Inspector Tony Shaw tells him the obvious occult symbols on the dead man are nothing more than faked staging, Lorne knows his instincts are right, and the police are wrong. There is darkness, and it’s spreading.

An ancient spirit line is awoken with violence and pain, seeping down from Dunkery Beacon, highest point on Exmoor, to the woodland church of Culbone on the coast.

Lorne Turner, SAS soldier and survivalist trainer, turns to his best friend, Ella Morgan, vicar of the parish, for help. Together, they approach Willow Hunter, a pagan whose past impacts all their futures.

Time is against them as they battle the unseen forces of Somerset’s aristocracy and the mysteries of an ancient moorland, never quite tamed. Its whispering dead seeking justice.

Creepy in all the right ways. Plenty of character.

It’s about the occult, but it’s nothing to be wary of. In fact, I learned a few things.

It’s much more about the corruption of surprising people. And, of course, the people who try to stop them. They don’t want to, but they have to.

Atmospheric Exmoor Murder Mystery

I picked up this audible as it is set in an area I know well. Great sense of place and beautifully described by an author who obviously knows Exmoor.
The characters are complex and engaging.
I love a good murder mystery, and this had a good pinch of magic to add an extra layer.

There are plenty of loose ends to lead into a second story, which hopefully will be following soon.

I took a few minutes to really tune into the narrator, but he defines the voices well and keeps the pace going really effectively.

Would recommend.
