About this title


Detective Dennis Milne is waiting to kill three unarmed men. Cynical and jaded, Milne likes to think that he’s hurting only those who deserve it. But this time he’s been duped. Instead of shooting drug dealers, he kills two respectable customs officers and an accountant -- suddenly Milne, his lucrative sideline and what remains of his conscience are heading for trouble.

Twelve hours later he’s back on duty in London’s King’s Cross. Eighteen-year-old Miriam Fox has been found dead -- her throat slashed. Milne’s dogged enquiries into the murky world of the teenage vice trade soon implicate fellow police officers and the manager of the hostel where Miriam once stayed.

With his own crimes returning to haunt him, Milne uncovers a web of depravity more shocking than he could ever have imagined.

From the Back Cover:

‘Great plots, great characters, great action’ Lee Child It’s cold, it’s November, and DS Dennis Milne is waiting to kill three unarmed men. Cynical and jaded, Milne earns money on the side by doing what he does best: punishing the bad guys. But he’s been set up. This time, instead of shooting drug dealers, he kills two customs officers and an accountant.

The ensuing investigation into their deaths sees Milne, his sideline and what remains of his conscience heading for serious trouble. ‘Caught me with its gut-wrenching reality. A compelling début’ Gerald Seymour WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY THE AUTHOR
