What you need to know before your trail

Detective Inspector Matt Lockyer has been side-lined to working cold cases, following a bad decision he made in a recent investigation in order to support a friend. Lockyer isn’t too bothered though, as it gives him the chance to review some of the cases that keep him up at night and to look into his own brother’s senseless killing which still remains unsolved.

On a quiet afternoon Lockyer receives a phone call from prisoner Hedy Lambert – a woman he put inside for murder fourteen years ago. She informs him that the man she was originally accused of killing has turned up alive and well. She begs him to reopen her case.

All those years ago, Lockyer had been the one to pin down Hedy’s motive, but deep down he’d never wanted to believe she was guilty. The thought that he might have sent an innocent woman down for life doesn’t sit well with him and he agrees to reopen the investigation. But has it become too personal and is he being manipulated? Perhaps there are some cases that should just stay buried.

Travel Guide


The author suggests a few places to visit in the area where her novel is set

1.  Avebury and Silbury Hill. A lovely village situated in a fascinating prehistoric landscape.

2. Imber. Only open a few days of the year (check the website), this village out on the plain was requisitioned for training purposed during WWII, and never given back. The church, manor house and other buildings have stood empty ever since. So eerie!

3.  Sidbury Hill; wild, untouched Iron Age hillfort, built on the site of a neolithic settlement. It’s a lovely walk, with fantastic views.
