Lost Summer

By Stuart Harrison

Suspense, intrigue and a classic love triangle set against the brooding atmosphere of a remote tarn in the Lake District, from the author of STILL WATER.

Teenage Adam is uprooted from London to Cumbria when his stepfather gets a job as a forestry manager. Seen as an outsider by the locals, Adam struggles to make friends, but succeeds with David and Angela. Yet when a young girl disappears the community closes rank, and Adam is left with no-one to share his suspicions with. As soon as he can, he leaves.

Years later, and Adam is a successful investigative journalist. He’s offered the chance to follow up an accident in which three young ecological protesters were killed, when the official version doesn’t quite answer all the facts. He doesn’t tell his editor that he knows the forest only too well…
