'Packs a mighty punch! . . . Fast paced and full of twists . . . If you like gangster thrillers, this is one for you' Reader review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Malton's in prison. Keisha's back in town. Dean's out on his own. And it's all about to come crashing down . . .

Craig Malton, the man who solves crime for criminals in Manchester's underworld, is banged up in prison - for a murder he didn't commit.

Journalist Ruth Porter is hungry for a story. Young men are turning up brutally murdered and one name keeps cropping up - Craig Malton.

As Ruth investigates she soon discovers a truth far darker than she could ever have imagined. There's a sadistic killer hiding in plain sight and he's already chosen his next victim . . .

A riveting, action-packed gangland thriller for fans of Kimberley Chambers, Mandasue Heller and Jessie Keane, with an ending you'll never see coming!
