Set in Cambridge and surrounding fenland, Corn Dolls begins for detectives Tom Fletcher and Sal Moresby with what looks like a very bloody accident in a farm machinery showroom, and reaches back into the past – his own and that of the local police force – before slamming into the present with all the force of the most up-to-date criminal power in the world. Crackling with secrets and surprises, packed with haunting landscapes and haunted characters, freighted with the hot, thundery atmosphere of a Cambridge summer and the inevitable paying-out of past betrayals.

There will be a book launch event at Topping & Co bookshop, 9 High Street, Ely on Wednesday May 8th where you can come and meet debut author Patrick Lennon. There will be a wine reception.

To reserve a ticket contact the bookshop: 01353 645005 or email: ely@toppingbooks.co.uk.

Ely Online will be reviewing the book shortly.

Cambridge in a blistering summer. The famous colleges shimmer in the heat. Beyond the City, the fens lie quite. Waiting.

    A great book this – I noticed it in hardback last year. The writer obviously knows the Ely area inside out, in more ways than one. Definitely a good read.
