The Nail

(The fifth book in the Mike Croft series)
A novel by

A heart-pounding new British crime thriller, full of stunning twists.

Two murders, twenty years apart. One witness with blood on her hands.

At first glance, you’d think
charismatic entrepreneur Morgan Springfield was still breathing. Seated at his desk. Executive pen poised in his hand.

That’s the illusion Morgan’s killer wanted to create.
Right after they hammered a nail into the top of his spine.

Detective Mike Croft isn’t fooled. He’s seen this killer’s handiwork once before. It’s been twenty years, but you don’t forget a scene like that. Meticulously staged.
And for what?

With no leads, no evidence and no motive, Mike might have to take his chances with an unlikely new witness. She reaches out to him, promising information that will blow the case wide open.

Too bad this woman has a history of telling lies.
And taking lives.

Mike should know. He’s already put her away once before.
For murder.

CWA Dagger-nominated Jane Adams is back, with her most fiendishly twisty mystery yet.

Fans of Simon McCleave, Joy Ellis, Helen H. Durrant, J.D. Kirk, Elly Griffiths, Rachel McLean and Tana French will devour this utterly unputdownable Norfolk-based mystery.
