Night Hunter

Elvie McCulloch’s sister Sophie has been missing for fifty-seven days. She went out for a run – and never came home. Several young women in the area have disappeared in similar circumstances, and Elvie’s family fear the worst.

As Elvie is driving to her new job late at night, the naked, emaciated body of a young woman crashed from the cliff above onto an oncoming car. Why was she up there? Where had she been all this time? And why was she runnig for her life?

Teaming up with retired detective Billy Hopkirk, who’s been retained by the mother of one of the missing girls to find her daughter, Elvie determines to find out the truth. But as the pair alternately collaborate with and infuriate the official investigating team of Anderson and Costello, they find themselves up against a terrifying enemy. Someone who has killed before. Someone who preys on young women. Someone they call The Nighthunter.

“This is not a cozy mystery. This is hard reality with dysfunctional people and dark desires. It won’t make you sleep well.” – bkfaerie.blogspot

“If you enjoy clever, well-plotted, fast-moving crime thrillers (and who doesn’t?) the you’ll love The Night Hunter, especially if you have a weakness for “tartan noir”. I loved it”–
