Detective Sergeant Washington Poe is in court, fighting eviction from his beloved and isolated croft, when he is summoned to a backstreet brothel in Carlisle where a man has been beaten to death with a baseball bat. Poe is confused – he hunts serial killers and this appears to be a straightforward murder-by-pimp – but his attendance was requested personally, by the kind of people who prefer to remain in the shadows.

DescriptionWhether it is Hadrian's Wall, Kendal Castle, or the beautiful fells of the Lake District, for thousands of years people have found a certain elegance and utility in stone. Nestled among these common relics are a multitude of massive stone monuments, built over 3,000 years before British shores had ever seen the Romans. Cumbria's 'megalithic' monuments are among Europe's greatest and best-preserved ancient relics but are often poorly understood and barely visited.

Unfortunately, a car accident put an end to his running career in the early 90’s, but his passion for both photography and fell running allowed him to continue to remain involved with the sport.

DescriptionBarrow-in-Furness was transformed by the industrial expansion of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, leading to it becoming a centre for ship and submarine building. Located at the tip of a peninsula, known for its own micro-climate and a rich and varied natural environment, the townscape is surrounded by sea, and beyond that the Lakeland Hills, while the protective arms of Walney Island provide a natural channel and harbour. Nature sits alongside industry and heritage.
The iron ore industry once scarred the landscape, but time and new growth have disguised the marks. Farming is still a crucial factor in Barrow and you do not have to stray far to discover old abbey granges still functioning yet diversifying. In this book, Gill Jepson provides a fascinating insight into Barrow's places, events and its famous sons and daughters.

From wild nights on Harter Fell to meeting Cumbrian legends; from stalking deer in Martindale to documenting Storm Desmond’s fallout; from dawn shoots of golden-hour panoramas to becoming a campaigning voice for Lakeland,
