Time is running out for Philip Dryden . . .
In the snowbound landscape of the Cambridgeshire Fens, a body is discovered locked in a block of ice. The following day, high on Ely Cathedral, a second corpse is found, grotesquely "riding" a stone gargoyle. Journalist Philip Dryden knows he's on to a great story when forensic evidence links both victims to one terrifying event in 1966.
But the murders also offer Dryden the key to a very personal mystery. Who saved his life two years ago - and, more importantly, who left his wife to die? The answer will bring Dryden face to face with his own guilt, his own fears - and a cold and ruthless killer . . .
This captivating and evocative murder mystery - skillfully punctuated with significant events frozen in time - marks Jim Kelly as the new master of suspense.
