Blacklands by Belinda Bauer

A serial killer who preys on children, buries their bodies on moorland and refuses to say where the bodies are? Echoes of real-life tragedy only make this a more uncomfortable read as Bauer describes the disintegration of the family of one such lost child.

Steven is a child himself but starts a correspondence with the imprisoned killer in a bid to find out where the body of his long-lost uncle is buried and thus heal his family. When the killer escapes the tension is stepped up and the outcome is far from certain. An edge-of-the-seat read which atmospherically describes the Exmoor setting while making Steven a very believable character.
