9780007130672: Blind to the Bones

A death in the family-from-hell bring Detectives Fry and Cooper to a remote and unfriendly rural community in their fourth psychological thriller.

'And as it grew dark, Withens became almost entirely silent. Except for the screaming.'

A small village in the Peak District, Withens is troubled by theft and vandalism, mostly generated by local family-from-hell, the Oxleys. Now it is the focus of a murder investigation – a man's body has been found on the bleak moors nearby, and the man is an Oxley. To crack the case, DC Ben Cooper must break open the delinquent clan.

His boss, DS Diane Fry, is also in Withens. Grim new evidence has turned up in the case of a missing student but her parents refuse to believe she could be dead.

The darkness in Withens's heart is growing. And things are only going to get nastier…

From the Publisher:

Withens is a small village in the Peak District, but it’s no idyll. Dark and dour, it’s troubled by theft and vandalism, mostly generated by local family-from-hell, the Oxleys. Now it is the focus of a murder investigation – a young man’s body has been found on the desolate moors nearby, and the man is an Oxley.

DC Ben Cooper is trying to crack the case and to do that he must crack this clannish family. On top of that, his difficult boss, Detective Diane Fry, is also in Withens on business – one Emma Renshaw, a student who vanished two years ago. Some ominous new evidence relating to Emma has turned up, but her parents are convinced she is still alive and act accordingly – and very strangely. So, with one murder and one as yet unsolved disappearance, Withens’ reputation for grimness is growing. And it looks like things are only going to get darker…
