The Body in the Mist: A nerve-shredding crime thriller: 3 Paperback – 15 August 2019
Enhance your purchase
A body is found on a quiet lane in Exmoor, victim of a hit and run. He has no ID, no wallet, no phone, and – after being dragged along the road – no recognisable face.
Meanwhile, fresh from his last case, DCI Craig Gillard is unexpectedly called away to Devon on family business.
Gillard is soon embroiled when the car in question is traced to his aunt. As he delves deeper, a dark mystery reveals itself, haunted by family secrets, with repercussions Gillard could never have imagined.
The past has never been deadlier.
From master storyteller Nick Louth comes the third instalment in the DCI Craig Gillard series. Compelling, fast-paced and endlessly enjoyable, The Body in the Mist is a triumph, perfect for fans of Robert Bryndza, Angela Marsons and Faith MartinWhat readers are saying about Nick Louth

I’m surprised that Craig was allowed to come and go with his job as much as he did flitting backwards and forwards from Surrey to Devon.
I thought the whole book was very well written and I thought the ending was just such a twist for poor craig and his wife.
All I’ll say is it’s a good job you can pick your friends being lumbered with a family like that is just awful.
My thanks to Netgalley and Nick for the ARC.
The only thing I found slightly disconcerting was I thought the pace was a bit off with a little too much happening towards the end of the book for my liking I felt it could have been better paced but other than that I loved this book, we already know about Aunty Trish from other books but this book made me want to know about the rest of the family.
All in all a great read, a hidden gem of the police procedural
We have a hit and run traffic accident death, a pervert, blackmail, an animal worrying sheep, inappropriate liaisons and fraud. Maybe just too much in one book. Those are the poor points.
The good points are that the book is well written and has a smattering of silly humour which does add atmosphere. It’s such a pity that the storyline is a little madcap and the ending was particularly disappointing- left more questions than answers.
Let’s have a bit of realism- the last book of the series had Gillard romping round Albania and here he’s in Devon. He should be solving crime in Surrey.
