A brilliantly written London Noir from a master of the genre
‘A firecracker of a novel’
Eric van Lustbader (The Bourne Legacy)
When two bodies are found brutally murdered on a building site in Battersea, DS Calil Drake is first to the scene. Drake sees an opportunity: to solve a high-profile case and repair his reputation after a botched undercover operation almost ended his promising career in the Violent Crimes Unit.
Assigned to work with a new partner, the enigmatic forensic psychologist Dr Rayhana Crane, and on the hunt for an elusive killer, Drake’s investigations lead down the dark corridors of the past – to Iraq and the destruction they witnessed there.
With a community poised on the brink of violence and their lives on the line, Crane and Drake must work together to catch the killer before vengeance is unleashed.
