MELKSHAM author Alan Barrett has released his latest book, From Shadows…To a Darker Place.
Detective Inspector Frank Crosby has been retired for over three years – a direct result of the bloody and violent events that took place at Sixfields and Dryffed’s Farm. Now the nightmare is back. Lucy Roberts has been released from prison. She believes that Crosby is responsible for a missing three hundred million pound cache of heroin. The former detective is coerced into investigating its disappearance after a series of threats aimed at his five-year-old grandson.
Against a backdrop of hired contract killers, international drug syndicates and overseas terrorist organisations, the ex-DI has to work alone. When his enquiries lead him to St Mary’s 11th century church, in the picturesque village of Oxley, he follows an ever lengthening trail of murder victims to a brutal and unexpected conclusion.
The book is published by Olympia Publishers and can be brought from Amazon or directly from the publisher at www. olympiapublishers.com/books/from-shadows-to-a-darker-place. Price: £8.99. The front cover was design by Melksham artist Amy Fletcher.
