LoveReading View on Bad Moon Rising

Women with long black hair are being strangled, one escapes and is able to describe her attacker as having a damaged face but this is ‘Feast Week’ in a Northumberland town and fair folk have arrived in droves: people with eye patches, cuts, scars and birthmarks, strangers all. So the hunt for the killer is not easy, but the book is, easy to read, fast, compulsive, enormous fun and exciting. I really enjoyed it.

Comparison: Martina Cole, Hilary Norman, Maureen Martella.
Similar this month: None but try Peter James or Mary Higgins Clark.

Bad Moon Rising Synopsis

A young woman walks home by herself, the tapping of her high heels the only sound. At two o' clock in the morning, it's cold, the streets are deserted and she thinks she's all alone. Waiting for her, sleeping soundly in his bed, is her baby son. When he wakes the next morning his mother still isn't back. She's never coming back. Because the streets weren't as deserted as she thought.

Three women are dead and Detective Inspector Lorraine Hunt is searching for a serial killer. In Houghton-le-Spring it's Feast week, a time when all hell is let loose as the fair comes to town, and a frenzy of celebration and decadence provides a temporary distraction from the grim realities of everyday life. It's not a good time to be searching for a stranger. It's not a good time to be a woman alone.
