Dog Rose Dirt
What if your mother had been writing to a serial killer?
A convicted murderer with a story to tell
Serial killer Michael Reave – known as The Red Wolf – has been locked in Belmarsh Prison for over 20 years for the brutal and ritualistic murders of countless women.
A grieving daughter with a secret to unearth
Ex-journalist Heather Evans returns to her childhood home after her mother’s inexplicable suicide and discovers something chilling – hundreds of letters between her mother and Reave, dating back decades.
A hunt for a killer ready to strike again
When the body of a woman is found decorated with flowers, just like his victims, Reave is the only person alive who could help. After years of silence, he will speak to Heather, and only Heather.
If she wants to unearth the truth and stop further bloodshed, she’ll have to confront a monster.
Dark dark dark!
Picture this – full moon, late at night, reading, reading…. new pup needs a toilet break before we go to bed – we put on her lead and we go for a wander around the garden…it’s midnight or later… we walk around and around in the light of the moon; its forty minutes and we are still walking (these “things” needed to happen before we could go to bed). We hear noises. We keep walking- hesitantly, reluctantly (me) purposefully (me) timidly (dog). I am feeling just a bit apprehensive (thanks scary book) 😊 Eventually the dead is done and we scurry inside and go to bed.
I slip into sleep – into dreams (not good ones) and wake up shouting “NO!” and snuggle closer to the husband. I had such a bad feeling…. such unease. Thanks book. I finished reading this in the daylight.
To sum up: a dark dark read- atmospheric, compelling. Read in the daylight.
