Sweet Summer

Between them they turned the body over and in doing so exposed for the camera a fully developed rigor mortis.  The flesh resembled something solid, quite inhuman, more like a plaster window model. It was immediately obvious, even without disturbing her clothes, that the main frenzy of attack had taken place from the front.  Avoiding the face, and extending from the neck downwards, was a mass of stab wounds, following a vague but sinister trail.

The murder of Angela Hawksworth shatters the peace of the attractive South Yorkshire village of Dossage. A simple crime of passion, it should be quickly solved. Yet, as hot May turns to yet hotter June, Detective Chief Inspector Sandy Woodings discovers a complex web of emotional undercurrents which, under the pressure of his investigation, threaten to release themselves in another tragedy.

Frank Ryan is an author with a remarkable eye for landscape and an equally fine ear for dialogue. In TIGER TIGER he portrays superbly the explosive tensions and deep-rooted passions of a rural community under violent pressure.
