Penwith, the southwest tip of Cornwall, is a land of mystery and magic, of prehistoric monuments, witchcraft…and murder. When an American archaeological team stumbles upon the skeletal remains of a missing child beneath a Stone Age burial quoit, irascible CID Detective Sergeant Morgan Davies and her Scene of Crimes partner, Calum West, unearth a growing list of suspects.
Within days, another body is discovered. Is the killer the mind-reading village witch—who has long been a suspect in the child’s disappearance? Is it the drug-dealing partner of the child’s heroin-addicted mother? Or is it someone even closer to the investigation? Just as Davies and West close in on their prime suspect, another child disappears.

A good read, convincing characters and descriptions of Cornwall, but spoiled by Americanisms: “atop” is not English English, nor is “flashlight” “box cutter” “burlap” and others, and SWAT and Medevac are not English. Not bad for an American author though I suppose.
After almost 300 pages, I gave up! Slow and boring 👎🏼
Absolutely loved this book .. Totally engrossed from the beginning to the very end . Already got the next in the series to dive into .. I recommend you take a look , I am sure you will enjoy it too
