Shadowy deaths have long made Grayrton Mire a place of gruesome legend. But when a vulnerable boy is charged with the latest killing, Banyard and Mingle brave the treacherous marshes to defend him.
Can they save the boy and discover who – or what – lies behind the sinister legend?
The Shadow of Grayrton Mire is the third in the Banyard and Mingle post-apocalyptic mystery series by B J Mears.
Mears has done for post-apocalyptic fiction what C J Sansom’s Shardlake did for historical fiction. It is an intriguing mystery, set against a backdrop every bit as convincing and mysterious as Robert Harris’s Second Sleep. The storytelling is compelling, and the characters draw the reader into the story which builds to a climax that is both satisfying and leaves you wanting more. I am already eagerly awaiting the next instalment.
