I'm SO PLEASED that this third volume of the Burrowhead series is out - got my audio preordered and everything so if all goes well today I'll be floating round the house absorbing the latest folk-horror tinged crime from the creepiest village in Scotland, and catching up with DI Georgie Strachan.
Thanks so much to Love Books Tours for the opportunity to share the goodness.
Take a sip and enter the world of the dead...
As the station prepares to close down for good, DI Georgie Strachan is running out of time to find out what is really going on in Burrowhead and put a stop to it. A deadly drug appears in the small Scottish village, best consumed with the blood of a freshly slaughtered animal. But what does this have to do with the deaths and suicides? And who is responsible for supplying it?
As rituals and threats reach a frantic high, no one wants to speak. It seems the drug is ingrained in the very fabric of the village. Suspects abound as Georgie questions who she can really trust.
