The third book in the Danutia Dranchuk mystery series reunites RCMP constable Danutia Dranchuk with her friend, drama critic Arthur Fairweather.
Danutia is observing a youth rehabilitation program in England when Arthur returns to the Peak District to attend his mother’s funeral. Suspecting foul play in her death, Danutia and Arthur question the feuding village. They soon discover that the practice of ancient Celtic rituals persists and has evolved into a dangerous and deadly ceremony.
In a region with chilling reminders of child labour during the Industrial Revolution, Danutia must navigate a community with a complex and layered history. And, her personal and professional boundaries become blurred. When a child from the village is abducted, the race to save him leads Arthur into extreme danger. Only Danutia has a chance of rescuing both Arthur and the child from an “unholy rite.”
In the third book in Kay L. Stewart and Chris Bullock's Danutia Dranchuk Mystery series, Danutia's friend Arthur Fairweather believes that his mother's death was the result of foul play. As Danutia and Arthur begin questioning the villagers of the Peak District, they begin to understand the dark rituals that are observed in the town, and hope to save a kidnapped young boy before he becomes a victim of these evil forces. Liza Ross performs a variety of British brogues with a settling, unfussy ease, but she is best at capturing the suggestive and intense rapport between Danutia and Arthur.
