Residents of the Peak District are used to tourists descending on its soaring hills and brooding valleys. However, this summer brings a different kind of visitor to the idyllic landscape, leaving behind bodies and secrets.
A series of suicides throughout the Peaks throws Detective Inspector Ben Cooper and his team in Derbyshire’s E Division into a race against time to find a connection to these seemingly random acts — with no way of predicting where the next body will turn up. Meanwhile, in Nottingham Detective Sergeant Diane Fry finds a key witness has vanished . . .
But what are the mysterious Secrets of Death?
And is there one victim whose fate wasn’t suicide at all?
Then, when another body is displayed to similarly chilling effect, it's clear that there is a link between the two murders. As panic spreads across Oxford, DI Lauren Rose must stop a killer with a dark and dangerous obsession.
But as the investigation deepens, Rose realises that the city is being stalked by an evil that has revealed itself before far from Oxford. And that there is a pattern. A reason for the name The Halloween Killer . . .
