In 1986 young investigative reporter for the Newton Abbot Star and daughter of wealthy philanthropist Lord Ilbert-Tavistock tragically disappears under mysterious circumstances, never to be seen again.

Over 30 years later the fresh graves of two teenage girls are uncovered on the desolate wastes of Dartmoor, followed by the sadistic murder of a City art expert, sending shockwaves through the South West.

Contracted to assist the police task force; siblings James, Fiona and Katie Sinclair at Moorland Forensic Consultants uncover links to the murders with the medieval Benedictine Priory of St Oswald’s and tumultuous events from the battlefields of WW2.

With the police close to admitting defeat and pressure mounting from an outraged media, in a last-ditch effort the team travels to Southern Germany to obtain vital evidence.

Moorland Forensics race against the clock to prevent more deaths, whilst James is battling his own demons, taking things one step too far.

    I previously reviewed Julie's book DEVIL'S REALM a couple of years ago, something she remembered and graciously sent me a copy of her latest title, CONSPIRACY OF SOULS from "down under". This is Julie's third "Moorland Forensics" novel, featuring siblings James, Fiona and Katie Sinclair as they assist the police with a particularly gruesome murder in the south west of England. Forensics as the "detectives" isn't new in British Crime Fiction, we have Val McDermid's Doctor Tony Hill, of course, but I especially like the fact that the three siblings have all followed the same career path and have set up their own company which enables them to participate in complex and puzzling murder investigations. This is very well written, with realistic dialogue and excellent set pieces, and the reference to a wartime incident fits in well with the historical aspects of the case. This is the second book I've read this month with strong links to the Catholic church (see my review of the latest Jane Tennison novel by Lynda La Plante). Thanks to Julie for sending me this brilliant book. You can purchase it from Amazon UK, of course.
