LoveReading View on Corn Dolls

A terrific read, I loved this one. A tale of many twists and turns, a mix of politics and historical pageantry and a portrayal of resentment and revenge. In the supposedly quiet villages of the fens a feud has been raging for twenty years between the descendants of the Saxons and the Norman invaders. The former now disadvantaged, the latter affluent but corrupt. Into this conflict comes a young Russian out to avenge the death of his father, also twenty years ago. The whole thing becomes a particularly taxing problem for DI Tom Fletcher, a great character in the start of what should turn out to be a splendid series. Highly recommended.

Corn Dolls Synopsis

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.
