This meme is hosted by Lisa Ricard Claro at ‘Writing in the Buff’ J
Each week she posts a photo that could be the cover of a book. The aim is to:
‘Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.’
Here is this week's photo followed by my blurb.

The Whitchun of Wellows Water
Wellows Water has been the scene of several fatalities. Local folk lore says the deaths are the work of the whitchun, an apparition intent on avenging an unlawful death a century ago.
Investigating police naturally refute this but begin to realise that all the victims are connected. As a profile of the killer is built up they become uncomfortably aware that the murderer may be one of their own. Tension is running high when an anonymous phone call alerts them to another killing scheduled to take place within twenty-four hours.
Round the clock surveillance at Wellows Water is already in place. What they do not expect to see is the whitchun. Is it a trick of the light or can the dead come back to mete out justice?
