Bookmark in The Crescent, Spalding, has chosen The Killing Season as its Book of the Week.

Bookmark of Spalding has chosen a gripping thriller as its Book of the Week.

The story focuses on DI Jack Delaney, who is trying to make a clean break.

Tormented by his troubled past, he has taken his young family out of London, swapping the mayhem of the city for the tranquil calm of the north Norfolk coast.

Except it’s not so tranquil. After a terrible storm hits Sheringham, a body is discovered beneath a collapsed cliff.

Natural disaster? No, this looks like murder, and Jack is the only local resident qualified to investigate.

But when more disappearances follow and the local police step in, Jack finds himself plunged dangerously deep into the investigation – and in the sights of the killer on the loose.

The author, Mark Pearson, lives in Norfolk, and in addition to writing scripts for television, he co-authored the No1 bestseller, Private London, with James Patterson.

The book retails at £7.99 but there is 20 per cent off with the voucher contained in the Spalding Guardian of September 11.
