The Outcast Dead
Ruth has excavated a body from the grounds of Norwich Castle, which was once a prison. The body may be that of Victorian murderess Jemima Green. Called Mother Hook for her claw-like hand, Jemima was hanged for the murder of five children. DCI Harry Nelson has no time for long-ago killers. Investigating the case of three infants found dead, one after the other, in their King’s Lynn home, he’s convinced that their mother is responsible.
Band 6 der Serie. “The book links Nelson’s investigation into a dead child with Ruth’s discovery of the body of a notorious child killer from the past. The two enquiries are not linked but they shadow each other throughout the book as the author uses the parallel plots to examine issues around children, adultery, childcare and working mothers.” (Leserin) (330 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 385 Seiten noch günstig?
