Matt Hunter lost his faith a long time ago. Formerly a minister, now a professor of sociology, he's writing a book that debunks the Christian faith while assisting the police with religiously motivated crimes. On holiday with his family in Oxfordshire, Matt finds himself on edge in a seemingly idyllic village where wooden crosses hang at every turn. The stay becomes more sinister still when a local girl goes missing, followed by further disappearances. Caught up in an investigation that brings memories to the surface that he would prefer stay buried deep, Matt is on the trail of a killer determined to save us all.
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
'An engaging debut' Daily Mail 'A book that is nigh impossible to put down and will leave the reader hooked from start to finish ... Let's welcome Matt Hunter to the world of macabre crime fiction. He's a damaged, complicated and interesting man, and we're looking forward to spending more time with him.' Starburst Magazine 'Like James Herbert at his best ... I haven't been this creeped out by a novel since Let The Right One In and whilst Purged isn't a standard 'horror' it is packed with disturbing themes that will linger in your mind ... Purged is the first in a new macabre crime fiction series, dark and intense, creepy and quirky' Dark Matters 'Compelling reading ... Law manages to conjure up menace from ostensibly benign surroundings. He also spins the tale cleverly so that we are persuaded to look in completely the wrong direction for the culprit, and he keeps us blind-sided until the last few pages of the book.' Fully Booked 'Stole a day of my life and possibly a little of my soul. Definitely my sleep. ... The writing is smart, funny, dark as sin (yes I did that) and incredibly immersive. The plotting is pacy yet considered, the characters live and breathe on the page and the story itself is scary good. No I mean actually scary. And good.' Liz Loves Books 'A devilishly cunning and creepily macabre murder mystery.' Peterborough Evening Telegraph
