The Final Reckoning is an atmospheric, twisty thriller set in the peaceful (or maybe not so peaceful) Herefordshire countryside.
When Lindsay Ellis was a teenager, he stumbled across the dead body of her boyfriend Simon’s father, who had been battered to death.
Someone in the village knows who murdered Simon's father, and why.
Does the actual killer suspect Lindsay also knows the identity of the murderer, and is Lindsay now in great danger, too?
