THREE MISSING CHILDREN. Over the past three years, the quiet Yorkshire village of Stormer Hill has lost three of its children. No bodies were ever discovered. No evidence found. No witnesses.
THE WRITER. Struggling to find inspiration for his new novel, celebrated crime author, and ex-police officer, Alex Palmer, believes the story of the missing children could end his writer’s block but is he prepared for the story that’s about to develop?
THE DETECTIVE. Tom Nolan, a seasoned detective, and loner involved in finding each missing child. Nolan is tasked with chaperoning Palmer and walking through each case. But as both men revisit the past, and dig deeper, neither is prepared for the chilling discovery as to why the children were taken.
THE BRETHREN. A secret cult. Two men, and a series of brutal and unimaginable murders spanning over seven years with one intention; to show the world that death can be justified if it’s for a greater good.
From its graphic and chilling prologue to the final words, “Bad People” is a deftly-written interweaving of horror, suspense, and mystery. Craig is one of those writers that also creates true atmosphere without sacrificing character; and the characters themselves live, the dialog as important as their descriptions in defining who they are. Tension and pacing are well-balanced throughout making this story difficult to stop reading. Highly recommended to horror and mystery fans alike.
