The Murder

In the Gare do Oriente, a body sits, slumped, in a stationary train. A high-profile man appears to have died by throwing himself repeatedly against the glass. But according to witnesses, he may not have done this of his own accord.



The City

Lisbon 2021. A small percentage of the population are diagnosed as Gifted. Along with the power comes stigma and suspicion.



The Detective

In a prejudiced city, Gifted Inspector Isabel Reis is hiding her own secrets while putting her life on the line to stop an ingenious killer.



A violent and mysterious crime. Suspected Gifted involvement. A city baying for blood. And a killer who has only just begun . . .





'A bold, compelling police drama a step beyond the ordinary with writing to match' Helen Fields, bestselling author of The Shadow Man



'This is crime fiction with a twist . . . This was a gripping and highly invented thrill ride. I can't wait for more' Nadine Matheson, author of The Jigsaw Man



'An amazing genre-bending debut' David Jackson, bestselling author of The Resident

Patricia Marques was born in Barreiro, Portugal before moving to London when she was 8. She studied for a BA in Creative Writing at The University of Roehampton and later gained an MA in Creative Writing from City University. She loves reading and writing crime fiction that has a hint of 'other'. She can usually be found most mornings crammed on an underground train carriage with her nose stuck in a book. The Colours of Death is her first novel.
