Publisher's Summary

Dead Woman's Ditch. The site of a grisly 200-year-old murder - and a recent hit-and-run. When a young woman's body is found at the macabre landmark in Somerset's Quantock Hills, DI Mike Lockyer and Sergeant Jane Bennett are called in to investigate.
They find a community gripped by fear and superstition. The locals won't venture out at night, believing there's a man stalking the hills - a phantom cloaked in folklore and legend, keeping the sinister legacy of Dead Woman's Ditch alive.
Confronted by a hostile CID team and a murder victim with close ties to their own squad, Lockyer and Bennett will have to accept what they can't see before they can find what's really there....

This series gets better and better!

This series keeps getting better, as the primary characters become more complex. I started listening because Imogen Church narrates, which is a compelling reason to try to a book; and I liked the first two novels; but the last two are stellar. Thanks Clare Donaghue, please keep them coming!

...and this time, narrator overcame Wind / wind

...block that I have heard even THIS narrator pronounce incorrectly (pronouncing the word wind as in. "the wind is blowing" for such setences as "she winds her hair around her finger" 5 stars for improving Imogen!

Confused

Several issues with this book!!! The ending of the non historical plot is for me inconclusive. Why was Pippa murdered and what was in the letters????????? What is their relevance???!!!!Unfinished plot. The author uses the same phrase "stretching the word" multiple times!!!!! Finally the use of a male actor to do the main male parts in book 1 was excellent. Sadly the female narrator who carries on solo in subsequent books lets the books down when trying to do male voices esp the main male character.

Lockyer and Bennett- book 4

When a young woman's body is found at the macabre landmark, Dead Woman's Ditch, in Somerset's Quantock Hills, DI Mike Lockyer and Sergeant Jane Bennett are called in from South East London to ‘support the local’ investigation.

They find a hostile CID team and a murder victim with close ties to one of their own colleagues.


Lockyer and Bennett find themselves dealing with local superstitious tales and beliefs as well as a growing number of deaths

I love the characters and stories in this series.
