Description

P. D. James meets E. L. James in Under a Silent Moon, this first novel in an exciting British crime series--a blend of literary suspense and page-turning thriller that introduces formidable Detective Chief Inspector Louisa Smith--from suspense talent Elizabeth Haynes, author of the bestselling Into the Darkest Corner.

In the crisp, early hours of an autumn morning, the police are called to investigate two deaths. The first is a suspected murder at a farm on the outskirts of a small village. A beautiful young woman has been found dead, her cottage drenched with blood. The second is a reported suicide at a nearby quarry. A car with a woman's body inside was found at the bottom of the pit.

As DI Louisa Smith and her team gather evidence, they discover a shocking link between the two cases and the two deaths--a bond that sealed their terrible fates one cold night, under a silent moon.

In Under a Silent Moon, Elizabeth Haynes interweaves fictional primary source materials--police reports, phone messages, interviews--and multiple character viewpoints to create a sexy, edgy, and compulsively readable tale of murder, mystery, and unsettling suspense.

A car with a woman's body inside has been found at the bottom of a quarry pit, an apparent suicide.
