Native Rites Summary

Native Rites by David Hewson

Fabulous countryside chiller -- Hewson's most accessible, suspenseful novel yet. A young couple move to the country. The husband Miles commutes each day to the city, leaving his wife Alison to get to know the locals, many of whom are frankly not all that friendly. At weekends, Miles, oblivious to his wife's concerns, loves to be 'one of the lads' in the pub. November comes, and with it the ancient bonfire festival. Alison could have been drunk, but she feels certain that she saw something terrible happen at the fire. And her husband was involved. Paranoia? Or a murder that an entire village has conspired in?

Native Rites Reviews

Praise for Semana Santa: 'He keeps the reader guessing... relentlessly tightening the suspense until the end' Daily Telegraph Praise for Epiphany: 'David Hewson has an altogether wider range of literary and cultural reference than most thrillers. Impressive...' Esquire Praise for Solstice: 'Hewson's inventiveness never flags... the characterization and dialogue are way above thriller norms, and the science is ingenious and plausible' Sunday Times
