The Silent Forest by Guy Sheppard
English | 2019 | Mystery & Thriller | ePUB | 420 KB
In 1940, something terrible happened to Jo Wheeler during the Bristol Blitz – so terrible she can’t stop blaming herself.
Since then she has almost given up on making a fresh start, seeking oblivion in beer and one-night stands.
Now, pregnant Jo has suffered another loss – her best friend Sarah Smith has died in a mysterious car crash in the Forest of Dean. Sarah was a volunteer firewatcher, like her. Together they climbed the tower of Gloucester Cathedral every night to look for enemy bombers, ready to extinguish incendiaries that might set fire to the roof. Sarah’s husband Bruno knows that a threatening message written in pig’s blood was left on her car shortly before she died. He’s desperate. Since he can’t persuade the hard-pressed police that Sarah has been murdered, he must turn to the disenchanted Jo instead.
