the well-reviewed author of several crime novels, including The Last Big Job, A Time for Justice, One Dead Witness and Nightmare City Backlash is his first novel for Severn House..From Booklist:
Oldham may not yet have the name recognition of a John Harvey or an Ian Rankin, but his books have the same dark, disturbing grittiness, menacing threat of violence, and flawed heroes. This time Detective Superintendent Henry Christie struggles with a case in which a seemingly respectable Blackpool businessman is hit by a car and then shot. Christie soon links the man’s death to an Italian Mob, but then the investigation stalls. Eventually, Christie learns that teenager Mark Carter and his buddy, Rory, witnessed the killing. But the boys have disappeared. At first believing they’ve gone to ground, Christie is shocked when Rory’s bullet-riddled body is found. The only remaining witness is young Carter, whom Christie knows from a previous case. Keen to find the boy, Christie fears the killers will find him first. Fast-paced action, gripping suspense, and a keep-’em-guessing plot will edge Oldham closer to the widespread recognition he deserves. --Emily Melton
