Talking Location With author Kathryn Hughes – Central Spain
The Peat Dead
Islay. Remote and peaceful. Until a spade finds a human hand, a pointer to a crime. And under the peat, five corpses, unnamed, executed.
Inspector Angus Blue builds his team. The evidence leads them to a wartime base. And the peat dead live again, from documents, databases, recollections.
But there’s a secret to be protected. Bodies are stolen, witnesses die, truth is invented.
The Peat Dead. History doesn’t go away.
