Synopsis

The stunning new thriller from No. 1 Sunday Times bestseller Stuart MacBride.

A village on the edge…
As a massive storm batters the Scottish coast, Gordon Smith's home is falling into the North Sea. But the crumbling headland has revealed what he's got buried in his garden: human remains.

A house full of secrets…
With the storm still raging, it's too dangerous to retrieve the bodies and waves are devouring the evidence. Which means no one knows how many people Smith's already killed and how many more he'll kill if he can't be found and stopped.

An investigator with nothing to lose…
The media are baying for blood, the top brass are after a scapegoat, and ex-Detective Inspector Ash Henderson is done playing nice. He's got a killer to catch, and God help anyone who gets in his way.

'Stuart MacBride's deft plotting and whipcrack dialogue, along with a strong sense of place, make The Coffinmaker's Garden a must read. If you like your serial killers with lashings of dark humour, this is for you' Peter Robinson, no. 1 bestselling author of the DCI Banks series

'The Coffinmaker's Garden is brilliantly creepy, with the most cleverly conceived crime scene I've ever read. His legions of fans will love this - it's an unmistakable Stuart MacBride cocktail of dark violence and even darker humour' Jane Casey, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Cutting Place
