Wendy Cartmellabout this book: The Sgt Major Crane novels are more than mysteries with each book also covering social issues. Regenerate is a tale of obsession, death and abduction. An army widow becomes mentally unstable as she copes with the death of her husband and child.
A friend once told me about a neighbour who had life-sized dolls. She kept them in cribs, in high chairs and treated them like children. Of course, as soon as I heard about these dolls I had to research them and found a whole culture built around these re-born dolls. To say they are creepy is an understatement. And so my novel, Regenerate, was born.
When Padre Symmonds and his wife Kim find a dead baby on the steps of the Royal Garrison Church, they call Sergeant Major Crane in to investigate.
Despite pleas from the local community and the media for the parents to come forward and seek help, Crane can't trace the baby's mother.
He suspects Kerry, a recently widowed army wife, who is finding it hard to deal with her husband's recent death...
But after searching her flat and checking her baby was safe and breathing, he is left with an uncanny feeling that he's missed something.
• "I found the subject matter particularly chilling and uncomfortable throughout, but felt that was a sign of how invested in the story I had become. Overall, a brilliant addition to the series." — Charlie on Amazon.com
