Strawfoot

Author:

David Hodges

Synopsis:

Detective Sergeant Kate Lewis is plunged into a macabre murder investigation after a teenage girl - last seen leaving a party at the height of a local scarecrow festival - is found strangled and partially stripped in her own barn. Worse still, the gruesome crime is an exact copy of the 150-year-old murder of a peasant girl, alleged by superstitious locals to have been committed by a spectral scarecrow, nicknamed Strawfoot. As Kate and her colleagues desperately try to track down the copycat killer, it becomes apparent that he has no intention of stopping at just one murder - and furthermore, he has developed an unhealthy interest in Kate herself...

Yes, there are dead bodies and a host of intriguing suspects; but hidden in the pages of the manuscript lies another story: a tale written between the very words on the page, telling of real-life jealousy, greed, ruthless ambition and murder...
