Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Revenge Ritual
When high-flying criminologist Dr Kate Trevelyan is seconded to the Jurassic Coast to research the growing hostility towards migrant workers, she has no idea that someone is studying her every move.
Or that her father would be killed in a suspicious house fire just days after her arrival in her hometown.
The stakes are raised when the police announce a verdict of accidental death and quickly close the case, forcing Kate to follow her own line of investigation.
Inquisitive teenage migrant Micki knows more than he is letting on, but he is too afraid of the violent threats and racial abuse that he knows he will receive should he come forward.
When glamorous property developer, Elaine Pierce, befriends her following her father’s death, Kate’s initial suspicions of the woman are confirmed when she discovers Elaine’s influence over the police force, her secret liaisons with local gang members and, more importantly, her disturbing psychological state.
Why is the property mogul so intent upon obstructing Kate’s study into the riots that are threatening to destroy the very community that Elaine helped rejuvenate in the first place?
It’s not until Micki is killed by the xenophobic demonstrators that the horrifying truth begins to reveal itself and Kate learns that a shocking family secret holds the answer to all her questions – one that will change her life forever.
Can Kate navigate her way through the web of lies and deceit and identify her father’s killer?
Will the truth finally set her free, or will it do more harm than good?
‘Revenge Ritual’ is a gripping psychological thriller set in the villages that run the length of Devon’s Jurassic Coast.
