by George Mann
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Book one in a new mystery series by my favorite author that no one else has ever heard of.
Ellie goes home to live with her mother while she works out what to do with her life after losing her job and her boyfriend and with him, her apartment. Sure she'll never find work as a journalist in her rural English village, she is shocked when a woman is killed near her mother's house in the woods that surrounds the village - the Wychwood.
George Mann creates fully fleshed out characters and atmosphere like no one else. Whether he is writing a Sherlock Holmes short-story, a steam-punk story or this mystery set in modern times he keeps you guessing until the very end.
