Synopsis of book»

Death has already come twice to Ravenbank, a remote Lake District community. Before the First World War a young woman’s corpse was found, a makeshift shroud frozen to her battered face. Then five years ago, another woman was murdered in the same grisly manner.

When a third death is visited on Ravenbank at Hallowe’en, Daniel Kind, a specialist in the history of murder, becomes fascinated by the old cases. Surely this new incident is linked to the earlier killings? In a race against time, Daniel and the Cold Case Review Team, lead by DCI Hannah Scarlett, join forces to solve the puzzling mystery.

What Critics Have Said»

'Martin Edwards' Lake District Thrillers are brilliant, full of atmosphere and tension, and the setting is superb... Absolutely blood-curdling, gut-wrenching thrills to see you through a few nights of summer reading. Sensationally good!'Books Monthly

'The ongoing story of Hannah and Daniel puts the ‘icing on the cake.’ The ‘cake’ is a beautifully constructed novel with characters that are rounded and believable, all mixed together with a clever plot and a satisfying end. The ‘jam’ that holds it all together is the atmosphere of the lakes in autumn which Edwards writes so well. Here is murder past and present with themes of jealousy and obsessive love.I highly recommend this book. If you haven’t read the series, start now.'Mystery People

'THE FROZEN SHROUD is masterful in its plotting and author Martin Edwards has concocted a haunting, plausible, and briskly paced mystery...Especially for those in the mood for a solid mystery with an intriguing premise and locale, this latest Lake District tale is sure to satisfy'
