Closer to home than we care to think

This book was recommended from the cannon of Val McDermid's work. I wasn't disappointed and could identify still with the rural locations.
It is a cracking good read that is really 2 books in one, at no extra cost. If you like detective fiction you'll enjoy this classic police procedure and subsequent court case.
The subject matter is dark but is somewhat a journey of self discovery.
It is a book you'll be pleased you picked up and sad to put down! However in the process you will have changed ; hopefully a little for the better.
