The Crafts­man ★★★★★ Sharon Bolton, Orion, R275

Thirty years ago, Flo­rence Love­lady made her name when she solved the mys­tery be­hind a se­ries of teen cof­fin mur­ders. But now their killer Larry Glass­brook is as dead as the chil­dren he buried alive. So when a teen goes miss­ing, with the same tell-tale signs as Glass­brook’s work, Love­lady is forced to re­open the case. Is it a copy­cat? Or did she ap­pre­hend the wrong man 30 years ago? This chill­ing novel pulls read­ers in and does not let go as the story twists and turns. There are modern-day witches, de­vi­ous cricket play­ers and a wise grave dig­ger, all with a fas­ci­nat­ing role to play. Cap­ti­vat­ing.
