Publisher's Summary

When a dog walker discovers a decaying corpse in Harterhow Woods it is surely just a matter of time before the police will close in upon the murderer. But despite a nationwide appeal the distinctive remains defy identification. Skelgill believes he knows the perpetrator - but his team have other ideas. As they unearth contradictory clues Skelgill becomes impatient - an arrest is made.

But when the victim is finally named a new prime suspect emerges. Skelgill is determined to prevail - but the facts don't fit his gut feel. And yet, as they search for a vital witness it dawns on him that there may be not one but two killers at large. And one of them may be compelled to strike again.

Too English for my taste

"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."
I like a good detective book, but this was too English for my taste. I just could not catch the flow of the story because my mind kept going back to the words and phrases being used. Overall it was an OK story.

Great traditional detective story!

This is the 8th book in the Detective Inspector Skelgill Investigates series but it stands alone. DI Skelgill is a curmudgeonly man and a hard to please boss.When the body of a dismembered woman is found in the Lake District by a woman walking her dog, DI Selgill and his team investigate. I enjoyed the way the story unfolded with descriptions and clues to sort out. I also enjoyed the role the dogs played uncovering clues. The story takes a very interesting turn at the end. I would definitively like to listen to more books in this series! I was gifted a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
