The Woodcutter by Reginald Hill

thewoodcutterWolf Hadda’s life has been a fairytale. From humble origins as a Cumbrian woodcutter’s son, he has risen to become a hugely successful entrepreneur, happily married to the girl of his dreams.

A knock on the door one morning ends it all. Universally reviled, thrown into prison while protesting his innocence, abandoned by friends and family, Wolf retreats into silence. Seven years later prison psychiatrist Alva Ozigbo makes the breakthrough. Wolf begins to talk and under her guidance gets parole, returning to his rundown family home in rural Cumbria.

But there is a mysterious period in Wolf’s youth when he disappeared from home and was known to his employers as the Woodcutter. And now the Woodcutter is back, looking for the truth – and with the truth, revenge. Can Alva intervene before his pursuit of vengeance takes him to a place from which he can never come back?

A fast-moving, stunning new standalone psychological thriller – from the award-winning author of the Dalziel and Pascoe series. To be in with a chance to review it, simply email killer.reviews@harpercollins.co.uk
