Wendy Goult, Chaing Shadows


About the book:

He who murders and gets away lives to murder another day.

     Children now play on Brampton Common and nearby householders such as Jan, Kerry and Debs know little of the dramas that once occurred so near to their own front doors, and nothing of the unquiet souls of the victims and the stories they could tell.

     Yet Police Detective Alan Woodgate cannot forget.  Now retired this is the one cold case that preys on his mind.  He and his CID colleagues never did solve the case of the missing persons nor could they confirm death since no bodies were found.

     Back in the sixties the clues and enquiries led nowhere and now memories and photographs have faded.  All Alan knows is that their abductor and assumed murderer is organised, coldly calculating and is still at liberty.

“This was a bonus Bill had

                  not been expecting.  He recognised

            Debbie from theold days and silently edged

    closer.  The thrill of knowing he hadn’t lost his              touch was a pleasant surprise and he licked his           lips in anticipation. managing to get up so close          he could smell her perfume, sending an immediate      buzz through his system. 

    Resisting the urge to touch her, however, he

         merely whispered in her ear.

             ‘Hello Debbie … No’ he instructed,   

                   ‘don’t turn round, just listen.'"


Without giving too much away this book is an interesting yet unusual approach to the crime scenario, one that really works and has the effect of engaging the reader in a way they would not have anticipated.  All in all, a great read.
