Anglesey is a small island just off the north Wales coast. It’s been my home for almost seven years. I love to read books based here and to walk in a character’s footsteps and see what they saw. To fully emerge yourself in a story like that gives you an all-round experience.
A Cold Dark Heart is set all around Anglesey. In fact, it has been a long while since I read it, so can’t name a particular place. But according to my review. I absolutely loved it. So for this feature, I will share Red Wharf Bay on the east of the island. Where they will have visited.
The Old Ship sits on the quayside and it was originally cottages built in 1740. It had a small pub inside one of the cottages. These days it is popular among tourists because of its old worldly charms. I’ve been a few times and love how small and quaint it is, and it really takes you back to the old traditional British pub.
Drake’s most dangerous killer and shocking case yet…
Accident or murder…?
When eighty-nine-year-old Emyr Isaac is found dead in his home, Drake and his team initially suspect a burglary gone wrong. Isaac was old, and his death was a tragedy, but it’s not a murder case…is it?
A grisly discovery…
Drake uncovers more suspicious deaths, all elderly victims, all seemingly innocent, but with one chilling connection.
A twisted killer…
If Drake’s suspicions are correct, they have a dangerous serial killer on the loose. Soon, the team realise that stopping this killer will require playing a dangerous game – how do you catch a murderer trusted by everyone?
I read it back in 2020.
