Master of the Moor
A stand-alone novel published by Hutchinson in 1982
Stephen Whalby loves to walk the moor. It is a dark and forbidding place, but it is his.
When the body of a young blonde woman is found there, her face horrifically disfigured, the victim of a merciless murderer, his beloved moor is tainted with suspicion and terror.
Then a second woman goes missing on the moor, and Stephen watches as the search party makes their way across the treacherous murder scene. Not to be usurped by a killer or a victim; he, and only he, is the master of the moor.
Abridged into ten parts and read by Christian Rodska for BBC Radio 4 in 1985.
Adapted for TV by Trevor Preston in 1994.
