A Dance of Ghosts Paperback
by Kevin Brooks
PI John Craine is struggling to cope with the weight of his past.
Sixteen years ago his wife, Stacy, was brutally murdered.
Craine found her body in their bed. And since then, to escape the pain and the unanswered questions, he has buried himself in work by day, and whisky by night.
But one phone call changes everything. The mother of missing young woman Anna Gerrish calls on his services, and Craine soon finds himself at the centre of a sinister web of corruption and lies that leads back into the murky waters of the past - and to the night that Craine has spent over a decade trying to forget.
As he delves deeper and deeper into the case everything gets increasingly, terrifyingly, personal. And it's down to Craine to stop history from repeating itself...

Review by Corazie
I like this foray into adult literature - not that it really seems much different from KB's YA novels.<br/><br/>Full of suspense and tension and twists and turns. So, I cringed and squirmed in some parts, but I'm a wimp and so I can't wait to read the next book and find out what happens next.<br/><br/>Reminds me a little of Ian Rankin's Rebus. Only Craine isn't a detective inspector
