Check out my review of Ritual Demise
Nothing remains buried forever…
When the bodies of two teenage girls are discovered on a building site, DCI Whitney Walker knows she’s on the hunt for a killer. The problem is the murders happened forty years ago and this is her first case with the new team. What makes it even tougher is that with budgetary restrictions in place, she only has two weeks to solve it.
Once again, she enlists the help of forensic psychologist Dr Georgina Cavendish, but as she digs deeper into the past, she uncovers hidden truths that hurtle through the decades and into the present.
Silent Graves is the ninth book in the acclaimed Cavendish & Walker series. Perfect for fans of L J Ross, J M Dalgleish and Rachel Abbott.

My thoughts:I am a massive fan of the Cavendish and Walker series and was thrilled that there was another one due out, I devoured the previous books in a matter of days since discovering them, they’re so good. Well written, compelling and with great characters, especially in Whitney and George.
In this newest installment two sets of human remains have been found during the initial digging for a new housing estate on farmland, they’ve been there a long time and so Whitney and the team open a cold case, one that wasn’t handled very well forty years ago, the missing teenage girls dismissed as runaways, leaving their families in limbo.
What unravels is a tale of tragedy and teenage drug taking, police misconduct and families left without their children for far too long.
Although the biggest jaw drop is the brilliant closing lines, which I won’t spoil but it’s fair to say Whitney’s private life is about to require some adjustments!
