Description

A rural Welsh community is beset by a series of cruel murders...

Putting his wedding plans on hold, Detective Winter Meadows resolves to unmask the serial killer on his patch.

The only connection between the victims is the stick dolls left by their bodies. That and the fact they don’t seem to have been particularly popular.

People are ruffled. Scared. Meadows must isolate the killer fast but the evidence is brittle.

The key to unravelling the mystery is in the stone church, in the creaking homes, and in the slowly thawing fields.

Only a detective who truly knows his world can unlock the identity of the killer.

THE CRIMSON HARVEST is the ninth standalone mystery in the DI Winter Meadows series. It can be enjoyed entirely on its own but look out for the other bestselling books.

The full list is:

1. THE SILENT QUARRY

2. FROZEN MINDS

3. SUFFER THE CHILDREN

4. A KNOT OF SPARROWS

5. LIES OF MINE

6. RISE TO THE FLY

7. WINTER'S CRY

Can’t believe we are up to book, 9 with this fantastic series with all the twist and surprises we come to expect. This series is definitely unusual with the DI from a commune, smoking Cannabis and the rural; Welsh settings.
Once again a great book full of twists , surprises, gruesome murders, intrigue and suspense. Love the reason behind the title.

Highly recommend to fans of murder mysteries with a psychological twist.

DI Winters has been handed another case, just before he is set to be married. As he works to solve the case, it seems that the killer is trying to right a perceived wrong, leaving a trail of blog posts as the reasoning for his crimes. While the motives are not entirely clear at the beginning, the more bodies that begin to pile up, the more it seems that their circle is narrowing around a suspect.

This was a great read! I absolutely enjoyed it. I have started working through this series through Audible, and when this one came up, I knew I had to dive in. It definitely did not disappoint. I could not put this book down, and read through it in one sitting.

If you are looking for a mystery to keep you on the edge of your seat, The Crimson Harvest is a winner.

Several bodies are found in quick succession in a Welsh farming community. They all have strange stick figures left with them. But what links them? It seems that the links are somewhere in the past. An enjoyable twisty read

A twisty and fast paced read that kept me guessing and reading. It's the second I read in this series and was wondering why I missed the others as it's gripping and highly entertaining.
Atmospheric setting, fleshed out characters, a solid plot.
Recommended.
Many thanks to the publisher for this ARC, all opinions are mine

A Gruesome Situation..
The ninth outing in the DI Winter Meadows series finds Meadows plagued by a serial killer on his patch whilst trying to plan his wedding. Someone is targeting the pretty but isolated rural community in a gruesome fashion - but who and why? A well crafted and immersive standalone mystery with a credible cast, a well imagined backdrop and a compelling plot. A worthy addition to the series.
