But it stirs up old stories of The Bone Keeper for Henderson, a seemingly urban legend that has terrified local kids for many years. The detectives examine some woods where the woman involved supposedly came from.

Veste plays to his great strengths of characterisation and the Liverpool setting. This is a thriller with a sharp edge, and it’s one to read with the lights on. Read our full review here.
