The Shrouded Path
Sarah Ward
I'm thrilled to be kicking off the Blog Tour for Sarah Ward's latest book, The Shrouded Path. I have loved all of the author's previous books and they just seem to be getting better and better each time, so I was chomping at the bit to read this one and I want to thank Sarah Ward for sending me a copy. 

When you read on the first page that in 1957 six teenage girls walk along the train tracks, enter a tunnel and only five come out, you know that this book is going to be an absolute corker!

Meanwhile in 2014, Mina's terminally ill mother insists she has seen "Valerie" who was one of her childhood friends  in the hospital and wants her to find her, but Mina has no idea who this person is and it becomes a race against time to find out who and where Valerie is. 

Mina also finds some photographs and one in particular of some schoolgirls taken in the church yard, leaves Mina more confused as there seems to be a clue written on the back, but she has no idea who the girls in the photograph are, or what the word on the back, GIVEN, means....

DC Connie Childs is back and is teamed up with a new partner by the name of Paul Dahl and they have been given the task of investigating an unexplained death of an elderly lady who was about to write her memoirs. Was someone trying to stop her from writing about the past?

Connie's boss, Sadler, is having problems of his own when his mother becomes ill and it seems she is keeping some secrets that none of her family would ever have imagined. 

Although there are quite a few characters in this book, the way the author entwines them all is amazing and the attention to detail with the description of Bampton and the surrounding areas of Derbyshire, is second to none. 

This was a fabulous read and one which I think you could read as a stand alone, but I would recommend reading all of Sarah's books as they just keep getting better and better. This was certainly one of those books where I just had to keep reading "one more chapter" before bed! 

I would thoroughly recommend this psychological thriller that will leave you guessing until the very last chapter.
