The Death of the Elver Man

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Probation officer Alex Hastings is struggling with the customs, dialect and prejudice she faces as an 'incomer' to the Somerset Levels. When one of her probationers, Kevin Mallory, is charged with murdering the 'Elver Man', who operated in the poaching underworld, she is embroiled in the investigation. Determined to prove Mallory is innocent, Alex puts her own career at risk as she searches for the truth behind the Elver Man's death, but her efforts attract the attention of the real killer. Alex finds herself drawn into a web of family feuds, gang loyalties and revenge killings as an unknown predator stalks her across the eerie landscape of the Levels.

The Death of the Elver Man

A great book with well researched detail. I can't wait to read her next book. Excellent writing.

Thoroughly Enjoyable Read

I wasn't sure what to expect from this novel, especially given the lead character is a probation officer, but I discovered a new found respect for the role played by probation officers in the justice system and I found the description of Alex's working life to be both funny, dismaying and enlightening. Though I've never been to "the levels" in Somerset the description was mesmerising; though the gruesome goings on might give me second thoughts before visiting. I am thoroughly looking forward to the next novel in the series.
