Beneath the Ashes published by Legened Press 3rd October 2016 

The floor felt hard beneath her face. Nancy opened her eyes. Blinked several times. A pain seared through her head. She could feel fluid. No. She was lying in fluid.
When a body is discovered in a burnt-out barn in the Warwickshire countryside, DI Will Jackman is called to investigate.
Nancy Faraday wakes up on the kitchen floor. The house has been broken into and her boyfriend is missing. As the case unravels, DI Jackman realises that nothing is quite as it appears and everyone, it seems, has a secret.
Can he discover the truth behind the body in the fire, and track down the killer before Nancy becomes the next victim?
I am so glad that Jane Isaac is back again with the lovely publicity team at Legend paper back books. What I like about Jane Isaac’s writing is that she makes all her books so simple to read and follow, with crime scenes that are very convincing. You can imagine the scene with smoke in the valley, blanketing surrounding fields, it hovered above a brick-built barn like hefty clouds in the clear blue sky. A resident was woken by the smell of smoke. A body was found beneath some fallen debris on the floor of the barn. Was Evan Baker killed first and planted in the barn? Nancy Faraday remembers waking up on the kitchen bloodstained floor alone and her boyfriend missing. Could somebody have knocked her out and abducted Evan? The police failed to trace anyone who knew Evan Baker. But he did have a distant sister who he hadn’t spoken to in quiet a few years . Was he really such a private person, or did he have something to hide?
