HARRY bINGHAM The Dead House

The fifth in the acclaimed series featuring crime fiction’s most unusual and engaging detective, DC Fiona Griffiths.

When the body of a young woman is found in an old ‘dead house’ – the annexe where the dead are stored before burial – of a tiny Welsh church, it seems that past and present have come together in a bizarre and horrifying way. For DC Fiona Griffiths the murder victim represents an irresistibly intriguing puzzle, given Fiona’s unusual empathy with the dead. And when her investigations lead her to an obscure and secretive monastery hidden in a remote valley, she finds that the dead girl is far from the only victim of a sinister melding of modern crime and medieval religious practices.
