The Blurb –
A stunning new crime thriller from #1 bestselling author Rob Jones.
Poised to return to work after a long bereavement leave, Detective Chief Inspector Jacob is called away from the sanctuary of his home to attend the grim discovery of human remains over a quarter of a century old. Found deep in woodland with its own grim history, they give little up, but he is soon confronted with local gossip of hauntings and witches.
The mystery deepens when a second person is murdered in the same woods, and Jacob soon realises he is hunting a killer who will stop at nothing to keep the darkest of secrets buried in the past. Working alongside Dr Sophie Anderson, a criminal psychologist with her own damaged past, they close the net until tragedy strikes again in this gripping romantic suspense thriller.
Set in the wild and beautiful Wiltshire Downs, The Fifth Grave is a fast-paced whodunit with a dash of humour and romance and a killer twist.
My thoughts – Still coping with his grief, Detective Chief Inspector Jacob is called back to work early to deal with a body that has been found in nearby woods. It is determined the body has been there for over two decades, which leaves Jacob little to go on to find who the body is and why they are in the woods.
With the discovery of the body the locals are happy to put the body down to local witches and several eerie happenings in the woods.
When a second person is found dead, Jacobs realises the two cases are related, and he needs to step the investigation up to prevent more deaths.
An excellent read that will have you gripped from start to finish.
