Publisher Description

It’s not only secrets that are buried by the water… A gripping crime thriller from bestseller master Nick Louth

On the tree-lined banks of Surrey’s River Wey, a decaying corpse is dug up by workmen in the middle of an Anglo-Saxon burial site. His modern dental fillings show that this is no Dark Age corpse...

DCI Craig Gillard is called in, but the body’s condition makes identification difficult. One man, however, seems to fit the bill: Ozzy Blanchard, a contractor employed by the same water firm doing the digging who disappeared six months ago, his crashed company car found nearby.

But then an X-ray of the corpse throws the investigation into turmoil. A shard of metal lodged in his neck turns out to be part of an Anglo-Saxon dagger unknown to archaeologists. Who wielded this mystery weapon and why? Does the answer lie in a murderous feud between two local families?

The deeper Gillard digs, the more shocking truths he will uncover.

A totally original crime mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end, The Body Amongst the Willows is an absolute thrill-ride, perfect for fans of Michael Connelly, Ann Cleeves and Mark Billingham.

Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Good story, lots of layers.
I’ve read most of this series so far and what I like best about it is that the author has avoided the now very boring trope of making the lead detective a miserable alcoholic with a bitter divorce behind him etc. Gillard is actually likeable and the books are so much better for it.

A book worth reading !

A chance find in the Apple Store . I read the preview and was enticed to buy the e-book . Great characterisation and a plausible story line . Set in the charming English countryside . I highly recommend this book . It was just that bit different and kept me guessing . Cannot wait to read more of this author’s work . Enjoy !
