*A GRIPPING DUNGENESS TRILOGY STARRING DS ALEXANDRA CUPIDI*
The Birdwatcher is a crime novel of suspense, intelligence and powerful humanity about fathers and sons, grief and guilt and facing the darkness within...
Salt Lane - DS Alexandra Cupidi has done it again. She should have learnt to keep her big mouth shut, after the scandal that sent her packing - resentful teenager in tow - from the London Met to the lonely Kent coastline. Murder is different here, among the fens and stark beaches...
Deadland brilliantly captures Kent and its social divisions, it's a crime thriller that's as ingeniously unguessable as it is moving and powerful.
