bookshelves: crime-psychological-thriller

A disturbing and unsettling story set during the height of the Yorkshire Ripper murders. Having grown up in a small village near Wakefield,West Yorkshire, I remember only too well the atmosphere of fear that gripped the area and also remember seeing the photofit posters stuck to the doors of my junior school - Have you seen this man? This is all captured in the book. The second in the Red Riding Quartet is as bleak and uncompromising as the first, 1974. An absolutely brilliant read, but not for the fainthearted.
