The Road to Hell by Sheila Quigley


The Road to Hell by Sheila Quigley

When a woman's body is found mutilated in a field outside of Houghton-le-Spring it's more than just another case for DI Lorraine Hunt. Not only does the body show evidence of violation and human bites, it also transpires that Lorraine knows the victim. But she also knows that this is an exact replica of a crime that occurred many years ago, on an evening that changed her and her friends' lives forever ...and the nightmare has resurfaced to haunt her. Murder, mystery and suspense in Houghton-le-Spring as DI Lorraine Hunt is back for Sheila's most eagerly-anticipated novel. The Road To Hell gives insight and back story to established characters and is the latest story in the Seahills Series .


'A gripping, epic saga from beginning to end and had me flying through the pages to the breathtaking climax. This is an astounding book and one that sees Quigley change up a gear and press her foot firmly on the throttle.'
Chris Simmons, crimesquad
