When Georgina, eight-year-old daughter of businessman Miles Dewhurst, is kidnapped, DI Charlie Priest and his colleagues at Heckley police station soon start to fear the worst. Dewhurst himself is devastated and willing to give up everything to raise the ransom that might be required. But Charlie is not convinced that Dewhurst is all that he seems.

Meanwhile, these are dangerous times for clergymen. Two are found dead under suspicious circumstances and a third is murdered by a shotgun blast. The deaths are linked by a picture of a Destroying Angel mushroom, left beside the body of the most recent victim, but why would a serial killer focus on men of the cloth?

As he races against time to find Georgina, and happens upon the first real clue in the hunt for the Mushroom Man, events take a dramatic personal turn, for Charlie is more deeply embroiled in one of the cases than he realises.

About the Author

Stuart Pawson had a career as a mining engineer, followed by a spell working for the probation service, before he became a full-time writer. He lives in Fairburn, Yorkshire, and when not hunched over the word processor, Stuart likes nothing more than tramping across the moors, which often feature in his stories.
