I read this book because Gwen Moffat wrote an inspiring autobiography called "Space Below my Feet" about her life in the mountains. I read it in my early 20s and I loved it. I wanted to be like her. Recently I attended a mountain film festival which included a film about Gwen Moffat. She is in her 90s now and still wonderful. So I was amazed that she wrote loads of crime novels and decided to read one.

Barbara Kellerman, Gwen Moffat. On the face of it, everything has changed. Nowadays cosy pubs sell real ale to discerning tourists and employ gourmet chefs, decrepit houses are restored by loving owners, fat geese graze village greens where quaint cottages are lush with clematis and roses. This is the Garden of Eden and that is the appearance, but Moffat is from farming stock; she has lived for most of her.

In Snowdonia, an arrogant landlord, Richard Judson, is incensing local opinion by allowing his Alsatian guard dogs, who have been trained as killers, to run loose in a nature reserve. Miss Melinda Pink, renowned Scottish mystery writer, arrives at the sleepy scottish village of Sgoradale, determined to finish her last book amidst peace and quiet. But she soon discovers that what the villagers consider their singular 'discretion' actually masks the most sinister happenings. There are anonymous letters, hints of blackmail and a cottage burns to the ground in the middle of the woods.

Culchet is everyone’s idea of the idyllic Lake District village, with geese on its tree-shaded green and friendly, well-behaved residents going quietly about their business: Bart Milburn is doing up the Old Hall, the gourmet chef at the pub is preparing for an anniversary party, her friend Alice in the back garden is reviewing a crime thriller, its violence the very antithesis of Culchet as it dozes through an early heat wave. Then, without warning, that peace is shattered. Two deaths occur within a short space of time, both too sudden and unusual to be deemed accidents. And when five-year-old Kim Butler disappears, everyone knows what that means—there has to be a kidnapper, or worse, living a seemingly respectable life in the village, pulling the wool over all their eyes. Panic erupts, vigilante groups are formed, and quietly, insidiously, blackmailers come out of the woodwork. So it turns out that in this pretty, sleepy village where nothing ever happens, volcanic passions are waiting to erupt—driven by a lust for power, for possessions, and for merciless and fatal love.
