Druids Hill is set in Manchester and starts with the shocking murder of a fourteen year old – an unsolved crime. Many years later journalist Emma Tulip witnesses a death on a demonstration against General Pinochet. She had investigated the previous unsolved murder, and somehow these two deaths appeared to be linked. And Emma is now at risk herself.
Druids Hill is a story of police corruption, secret deals, assassination, torture and greed. Druids Hill is a political thriller linking events of today with those of the past.
