Midnight Murders Paperback
Part of the Trevor Joseph Detective Series series
Compton Castle is a Victorian psychiatric hospital long overdue for demolition.
Its warrens of rooms and acres of grounds, originally designed as a sanctuary for the mentally ill, now provide the ideal stalking ground for a serial killer.
Physically and mentally battered after his last case, Sergeant Trevor Joseph is a temporary inmate - but the hospital loses all therapeutic benefit when a corpse is dug out of a flowerbed.
Then more bodies are found; young, female and both linked to the hospital.
Everyone within the mouldering walls is in danger while a highly unpredictable malevolence remains at large. And, as patients and staff are interrogated by the police, the apparently motiveless killer watches and waits for the opportunity to strike again...The pit reeks of rot and decay.
Staring upwards she can see the sky, the moon, the trees and the silhouette of her killer as earth is shovelled over her.
Another shower comes down...There can be no more fight for air - for anything.
Only a soft blackness that caresses and envelops, plunging her into the darkest oblivion of all.
Now she knows that she is going to die.
