Ian Carew is a mild-mannered teacher at the primary school in Mirebury, a quiet town lost in the moors. Six years after leaving London, he's still considered a newcomer, but his elderly neighbour, Mary Hopkins, treats him like a son, and the local butcher, Jack Fuller, is his best friend. All that's missing from Ian’s life is a touch of romance and a dash of adventure. Little does he know, he's about to get a taste of both. When Mary Hopkins opens her letterbox and makes a gruesome discovery, Mirebury is thrown into a state of shock and outrage. At first, the townsfolk assume it was a random act, but the horrible deliveries continue and they're forced to acknowledge they have become the target of a campaign of terror - and nobody’s letterbox is safe.

Is the Postman one of them, or an outsider? Tensions grow as suspicion and accusations tear the town apart. Neighbour is pitted against neighbour and tempers flare. The Postman only strikes at night and moves through the fog like a ghost. Catching him seems impossible, but Mirebury fights back, and in the end, the fate of the town will come down to one man.

What readers say about Letterbox:
"The sleepy, and ever so slightly creepy, little moor town of Mirebury holds many secrets beneath it's quaint British facade. Cameron Trost teases them out patiently until a brutal act of violence upends the narrative, and the tale takes a turn towards the downright nasty. A delicious pleasure!"
- Goodreads review

"What happens when evil delivers the mail? A great read is what! A small village must deal with the fear and violence that comes when all trust is shattered among old friends and lifelong neighbours faced with the psychological torture and shame that emerges from the daily post. Letterbox is a well plotted, well paced tale that will easily grab and keep your attention."
- Bryant Jordan, five-star Goodreads review

"Mirebury is a small town where everything is within a five-minute walk of everything else. And Mirebury is filled with fascinating people. Ian, a lonely man who’s looking for love. Mary, his elderly neighbor who has recently lost her husband and spends her time gardening and baking. Jack, the butcher who hates vegetarians and knows everything about everybody. Cherry, a teen-age girl who lives a secret wild sex life. Charlotte, the new librarian who has just moved into town. A fascinating town with fascinating people. But they have a big problem. Someone is putting gruesome items into letterboxes and the townspeople are soon accusing each other as things start to spiral out of control. Violence ensues. This wonderful book has it all. It is creepy. It is sweet. It’s a clever mystery. It’s suspenseful. It’s well plotted with well-drawn characters. It even has a crossword puzzle. Great read!"

"Cleverly written with plenty of teasers to keep you guessing. I love the imperfect characters and the sense of moral greyness that permeates the latter part of the story. I resented having to put it down to get on with normal life."
- Karen Bayly, five-star Amazon review 

"Last night I bought Letterbox and wow I was happy...atmospheric, had some good twists and a great narrative, the characters were well rounded, and the story had a good pace. All in all a fabulous book to enjoy anytime."
