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.

Amazing book that kept me on edge with my eyes glued to the page!
Not hold interest
Couldn’t get interested in describe too much things which I didn’t understand about foreign places I love mystery but this one just couldn’t hold my interest
Harm None, interesting and different
I enjoyed the well-explained situations presented in this book. A bit of archeology, layers of sorcery, the underbelly of sex and drugs—and the children who have the misfortune to be born to those caught in its grip— are developed in this novel, and it got to me. The battle between good and evil that keeps the justice department on their toes drives the story line and keeps you guessing. I especially loved the character development and the descriptive way the situations were fleshed out. Recommended.
