Death in a Lonely Place by Stig Abel

A beautifully written new crime thriller you won’t want to miss!

In a quiet village, a storm is brewing…… eventually

A paradise found…
Detective Jake Jackson moved to the countryside for a quieter life. And now, he finally seems to have his wish – spending his time swimming in his lake, tending to his chickens, and enjoying long, lazy evenings with his newfound love, Livia.

A secret unleashed…
But the return of an old case shatters the calm, and pulls him into the shadowy world of No Taboo – a secretive group serving the extravagant whims of the elite.

An enemy closes in…
As the web around Jake tightens, he must determine who he can really trust in his small community. Or else he will learn just how far No Taboo will go to protect their secrets.
