When Detective Inspector Nathaniel Thomas encounters a man attacking a young woman in a local park, the DI is unable to save her. Out of guilt, Thomas quits his job at Homicide Headquarters and relocates to the tiny village of Turtleville, where he regains control of himself and begins to enjoy life again. However, a year later, all the guilt and shame of the park murder re-emerges when a local hermit, Ethan Wright, is murdered with an unusual weapon and left on display in the centre of the village. For Thomas the situation gets worse when DS Ann Collins, a colleague from his past, appears to help with the case. But things become complicated when the victim’s identity is put into question. Who is the victim? And why was he murdered? Thomas and Collins will find themselves trying to solve a highly unusual case and both may have more in common than they could have ever imagined.

My Thoughts

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Snow Light, from the setting to the baffling crime set up. 

It is being published perfectly for a winter read, as it is set beautifully in the back drop setting in Turtleville. 

Nathaniel was such a fabulous character to get to know. With his background story to how he lives his life. 

As the book is set in a village there is a slight feeling of being in a fish bowl and wondering who done it, which I did not guess at all. For a change, I was quite happy to read and let the story evolve and the killer be revealed as I was totally immersed in the unfolding mystery.

A very classy, clever read with a wonderful setting, and traditions explained with ease and fitting in with the story.

A perfect crime winter read, that will leave you wondering on this conundrum right to the end.
