Moorland Forensics - Bound by Polaris
Murder is afoot in the Southwest, again. Muriel Jennings, elderly mother and owner of the successful Jennings Clay Company, has met a premature end; survived only by her children and business partners Stella and Mark. James, Katie and Fiona Sinclair, at Moorland Forensic Consultants, have been tasked with assisting the investigation. After attending a meeting at Muriel's book club in Bovey, Katie learns the last book to be read; The Sinners Daughter by Lillian Webster - the story of Ted Cartwright who murdered five women in his remote home on Dartmoor a little over fifteen years ago. The more she uncovers about the lives of those close to Muriel, her family, her business associates and her book club, convinces Katie of parallels between the Jennings and the Cartwright cases. Could the two be linked - fact or fiction? Julie D. Jones delivers a murder-mystery set in Devon in which the landscape is as alive as the characters breathing in her prose. Moorland Forensics, Bound by Polaris is an intelligent piece of fiction that will have you guessing until the death.
