But Ruth has barely settled into her new position in North Wales Police, when the body of a brutally murdered woman is discovered…with strange symbols carved into her skin.

When another slain victim is discovered with the same cryptic markings, she’s forced to re-think the investigation. Has Ruth got what it takes to solve the case before the murderer attacks again?

    Hi Simon. I have just finished book 3 and cannot wait for book 4. I love DI Ruth Hunter and the rest of the team and am enjoying learning about their characters and lives I Love the way they all are so different but gel well as a team.

    I’ve really enjoyed your first two Ruth Hunter novels. Just starting on the third. As a native North Walian I think it’s really great that the stories are set in places I’m so familiar with (other than Llancastell!) Keep up the good work. They have the makings of a great TV drama series.
