Blood and soil: Belinda Bauer

Finders Keepers, By Belinda Bauer

Belinda Bauer's third book represents a remarkable achievement: almost a return to the good old Victorian triple-decker novel of suspense, but created with a deftness that allows each book to stand alone. Throughout Blacklands and Darkside, her previous novels, ran the stories of characters in an Exmoor village, notably two people whose lives became intertwined: the young boy, Steven, and the village policeman, Jonas Holly. Steven lured a serial child-killer out of jail and into a trap, but encountered Holly and his wife, Lucy, who died in circumstances which have haunted Steven since.
