Journeys in the dead season

£3.49

Product description

A prisoner is on remand in Durham high security jail for what turns out to be a series of attacks on young girls across Leicestershire, culminating in abduction, rape and murder.

In the autumn of 1922, Captain Crowe is on a journey across Leicestershire. He intends to visit his old comrades from the War, finish his book on horticulture, and come to terms with a past that still haunts him and a future that terrifies him.

The prisoner is reading a copy of Crowe's book, Perambulations of a Soldier: Autumn to Winter, whilst writing his own diary. Crowe's retelling of his odyssey in his letters, their subsequent appearance within Perambulations and the prisoner's interpretation of them, creates a macabre fusion of past and present, where fact and fiction, truth and reality begin to merge and coalesce . . . Juxtaposing the experiences of a shell-shock victim in the early 1920s with the recollections of an alleged child-murderer in the present day, Journeys in the Dead Season is a masterpiece of psychological complexity and subtlety.
