Dark Ritual

Murder arrives in a small English village when the naked body of an investigative journalist, Sandra Peterson, is found stabbed to death in a crop circle.

The graphic way her body has been mutilated, and the attempt to set fire to her remains, lead to a disturbing suggestion.

Have the old beliefs of human sacrifice and pagan worship returned to the quiet English countryside?

DCI Fowler and DC Peale are called in to investigate.

It soon becomes clear that Sandra had links to quite a few of the men in the village.

And before they know it, nearly everyone they come across seems to be a suspect.

Was this a random murder to re-invoke an ancient Pagan ritual?

Or is it a cover up for something even more sinister…?

Fowler and Peale need to find before someone else falls victim to this Dark Ritual…

‘Dark Ritual’ is a chilling murder mystery that is perfect for fans of Kathy Reichs and Elizabeth George.
