The Skeleton Man Paperback


For seventeen years, the Cambridgeshire hamlet of Jude's Ferry has lain abandoned, requisitioned by the Government for military training.

In its thousand-year-old history, it had been famous for one thing - never having recorded a single crime.

For the TA's shells reveal a hidden cellar beneath the old pub. And inside the cellar hangs a skeleton, a noose around its neck ...Two days later, a man is pulled from the reeds in the river near Ely - he has no idea who he is or how he got there.

But he knows the words 'Jude's Ferry' are important, and he knows he is afraid...
