#2 in Yorkshire Post's 'Pick of the Best Books' The searchers took several hours to find the body, even though they knew roughly where to look. The whole hillside had collapsed, and there was water running off the moors and over the slick black rubble. The boy, they knew, was beyond their help.This was a recovery, not a rescue. A grim discovery brings DCI Lockwood to Gimmerton's Heights Estate - a bleak patch of Yorkshire he thought he'd left behind for good. There, he must do the unthinkable, and ask questions about the notorious Earnshaw family. Decades may have passed since Maggie closed the pits and the Earnshaws ran riot - but old wounds remain raw. And, against his better judgement, DCI Lockwood is soon drawn into a story. A story of an untameable boy, terrible rage, and two families ripped apart. A story of passion, obsession, and dark acts of revenge. And of beautiful Cathy Earnshaw - who now lies buried under cold white marble in the shadow of the moors. Two hundred years since Emily BrontE's birth comes The Heights: a modern re-telling of Wuthering Heights set in 1980s Yorkshire. Readers love Juliet Bell: "A genuinely gripping book, cleverly re-telling the story of Wuthering Heights in a convincing modern context. A brilliant achievement. Highly recommended." "Excellent modern re-telling of Emily Bronte's classic." "The Heights is an edgy and compelling read" "A fantastically absorbing read" "gripping and dark and an absolute triumph!!" "Excellent read."
