A Stephen Lang Thriller
Following on from DARK BANK, CORPSE BRIDE is the second case for DCI Stephen Lang.
During repair works at a cemetery, the undertakers open up one of the damaged coffins to find not just the male corpse they were expecting, but two bodies. One of these is a woman in a wedding dress, who appears to have been buried alive. Inspector Stephen Lang and his team begin their investigation. Not long afterwards, another body is found – another ‘corpse bride’.
It soon becomes clear that there is a serial killer on the loose in England, who for decades has been burying dead men’s wives and partners in the same graves as them. Even more horrifically, the women were all buried alive. And he has already chosen his next victim.
”It’s very rare that a story grips me so much I literally can’t stop reading.”
“I couldn’t put it down, and there were three days where I basically had to give up on sleep because I just had to know what was going to happen next.” (amazon.de reviews for DARK BANK)
