"Nikki Crutchley is a wonderful writer. Like Agatha Christie, she knows that village communities can be marvellous settings for murders. People thrown together in close proximity with their passions and secrets will always provide a rich vein for good writers to mine."- Kerre McIvorA dead body. An anonymous letter. This is only the beginning.'Not all evil, on the surface, is ugly and menacing. It doesn't always lurk in city centres after dark. It mows your lawns, frequents your local pub, takes its kids to school and contributes to communities.'When the first letter arrives saying that 'tonight it begins', journalist Miller Hatcher ignores it. But then the body of a murdered woman is discovered, strangled, a scarf around her neck.Cassie Hughes has always vowed to find the man who murdered her mother. Cassie knows he's out there and wants him to pay, and Miller agrees to bring the cold case back into the public's eye.Logan Dodds has been obsessed with true crime ever since his sister was murdered thirty years ago. He has turned his obsession into a career and has created the True Crime Enthusiasts Club and his newest venture, True Crime Tours.The lives of Miller, Cassie and Logan - all affected differently by murder - become entwined as The Scarf Killer, desperate for infamy, and Miller's attention, makes his mark on the small town of Lentford.
