Summary

DI Mike Yorke is coming home. After three months in London, he’s looking forward to being back in the north east – but he’s barely off the train before he’s deep into the most bizarre case of his career. A viciously flogged corpse. Children disappearing. Horrific new street drugs. And buried somewhere is a deadly secret that will lead him down paths so dangerous, he will question the very fabric of society. In the first in a new series set on Holy Island, an explosive secret going back to the dawn of time is unearthed by a young woman who, fearing for her life, goes on the run in the wilds of Northumbria.

Unrealistic and unbelievable

I tried to overlook some early misgivings and persevered because I've recently visited Lindisfarne for the first time and really wanted to like this. Unfortunately the plot quickly descends into such an unbelievable direction that i lost interest. Some of the dialogue between Mike and Jill was very clunky and I didn't develop any real interest in the characters that would have counteracted my disbelief in the trajectory of the story line.
Tim Bruce did a very good job in the circumstances.
