In his latest novel, the investigation takes them along to the Lincolnshire border and a body discovered by a farmer in Sutton Bridge.Ken said: “The aim for the criminals had been to dispose of any evidence by the body being left in a fenland field due to be harvested.“Fortunately, it doesn’t work as well as they had hoped and starts a new case for Ray to investigate.” Mr Ward managed to take up his writing hobby full-time during the Covid-19 pandemic.He has gone on to give talks about his series of crime novels featuring D.I Ray Keane. Ken added: “The climax of the case ends in the area but not in a good way for the members of the team.
