Burning Secrets


It is Spring 2001: Foot and Mouth disease is ravaging Cumbria. Twelve year old Helen Heslop is living away from the family farm when she disappears without trace.
The police search exposes fault lines within the Heslop family and within the police investigations team too, where local DC Maureen Pritchard is caught between old school DI Bell and new broom DS Anna Penrose.

Helen is lost in the chaotic war zone of the Cumbrian countryside, as disease threatens her home farm.
Will Helen Survive? And can life for the Heslops ever be the same, once burning secrets are uncovered and old scores settled?
