What if you were murdered? And what if by supernatural intervention you are given the chance to help the police find your killer? This is what happened to rookie police officer Ben Walker after he and his girlfriend , Liz Mason became victims of a callous and brutal attack by Daniel Boyd, a grudge bearing drop out, and his gang.
Ben's body lay alongside Liz, who was unconscious and barely alive at the bottom of Mill Tut, a Bronze Age burial mound in the beautiful Badock's Wood in Bristol.
DCI Markland Garraway, who at the last moment is brought in to lead the investigation into Ben's murder, has a reputation of being a maverick detective who thinks outside the box.
The mystical powers of the ancient burial mound begin to influence Garraway's attitude towards the case and soon he is alienated by his colleagues. Mill Tut, or The Hill as Garraway refers to it, opens up a Pandora's Box of supernatural happenings which infiltrate his waking and sleeping life, creating a host of mental and physical demons which the Scottish detective must learn to deal with.
Daniel Boyd has fled Bristol to evade capture for the crime he has committed. To those who know him he's vanished off the face of the earth. But can he escape the mystical powers of The Hill?
The Power of The Hill does not only affect Garraway. It reaches out to many, including Christopher Jameson, who was born at the precise time Ben's life ended.
The Hill reveals to Garraway and the others who are affected by its influence, the world for what it is; a place where the impossible is real, and the dead speak with the living.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, 2 Aug. 2015
What a fantastic book. I have been reading books for 50 +years and never ever have I come across anything like this one. I just had to keep reading and reading. The plot was unlike anything I have ever encountered. Very well thought out and even believable. I was constantly asking myself if the story could be based on truth it was so convincing. I find it hard to believe this was the author’s first book.
