Corn Dolls

It begins for Tom Fletcher with what looks like a very bloody accident in a farm machinery showroom, and reaches back into the past - his own and that of the local police force - before slamming into the present with all the force of the most up-to-date criminal power in the world. Crackling with secrets and surprises, packed with haunting landscapes and haunted characters, freighted with the hot thundery atmosphere of a Cambridge summer and the inevitable paying-out of past betrayals, "Corn Dolls" marks the arrival of a major new crime talent.
