LAY THEM TO REST
Murder, whether meticulously planned or the result of impulse, is always a depraved, selfish act. Money, jealousy and rejection are often the drivers of such evil. In this eclectic collection of THREE fast-paced crime novellas, no stone is left unturned, no clue unexplored after murderers steal the lives of complete innocents.
Lay Them To Rest brings together stories that will introduce you to author Belinda Bennett's work. Boasting the original, dark and strange, it features the following stand-alone reads:
Mandy was just a teenager when she climbed over her boyfriend's bloodied, lifeless body and ran. Running was a mistake - a regret that stalked every day of the two decades she sat staring at peeling paint in a lonely prison cell. When freedom finally calls, it comes at a terrible price. What promised to be a happy homecoming is shot down by a sickening mystery only she can solve.
