A watched clock never moves
The church clock in this unassuming South Midlands village has stopped, and for good reason. The old man who wound it up lay lead in the tower, decapitated.
Dr. Jackson (Jacko), a local historian, becomes drawn in to the police enquiry, but not before there are more unexplained deaths, including one at the home of a local MP. Then the vicar vanishes into thin air.
Is there a common thread? Why are the Intelligence Services involved. And why is there hushed talk of cannibalism in the police enquiry?
Growing tensions within the police enquiry make matters worse. Jacko wished he’d never taken the job, especially after an attempt on his life. He knew too much, which is ironic as he had no idea what it was he was supposed to know. Drifting unwittingly into a network of serious crime, can Jacko put together the pieces before the killer strikes again?
