Publisher's Summary

Gideon Frayne has spent his whole working life as a policeman in the village of Dark on Bodmin Moor. It's not life in the fast lane, but he takes it very seriously, and his first missing-child case is eating him alive. When his own boss sends in a psychic to help with the case, he's gutted - he's a level-headed copper who doesn't believe in such things, and he can't help but think that the arrival of clairvoyant Lee Tyack is a comment on his failure to find the little girl.
But Lee is hard to hate, no matter how Gideon tries. At first Lee's insights into the case make no sense, but he seems to have a window straight into Gideon's heart. Son of a Methodist minister, raised in a tiny Cornish village, Gideon has hidden his sexuality for years. It's cost him one lover, and he can't believe it when this green-eyed newcomer stirs up old feelings and starts to exert a powerful force of attraction.
Gideon and Lee begin to work together on the case. But there are malignant forces at work in the sleepy little village of Dark, and not only human ones - Gideon is starting to wonder, against all common sense, if there might be some truth in the terrifying legend of the Bodmin Beast after all. As a misty Halloween night consumes the moor, Gideon must race against time to save not only the lost child but the man who's begun to restore his faith in his own heart.

A haunting mystery!!

I loved this novella set in the Cornish Moors!! As always, the setting was a character in full force in Harper Fox’s mystery.

This one involved a missing girl. Gideon, the police constable in the small village of Dark, has been doing all he can to find her.

A psychic offers his services, but while Gideon scoffs at his help, he uses him. Together, they solve the mystery.

I love the set up for this couple and can’t wait to see them in action in all the other books. They are sweet and sexy together.

The audiobook rocked!

Nice mystery short story

While I enjoyed this mystery short story and the narration I was really annoyed when it ended abruptly to then be told that there was a sample chapter of the next book. I HATE it when audiobook producers do this. I paid for a book that should have lasted 2hrs 58 mins and 35 secs. I didn't get that. To artificially inflate the audiobook time by adding chapters is not fair on the listener. It is a cheap trick to make a book seem longer.

Marvellous

I’ve listened to all the books in the series back to back and thoroughly enjoyed everyone of them. Tim Gilbert has done an amazing job with the narration and has brought them to life for me.

Can't wait to continue the series.

Great narration by new to me Tim Gilbert. Love the story of Tyack and Frayne. The abducted little girl storyline just added to the suspense
