Dead Embers

(The third book in the DCI Michael Lambert series)
A novel by


An explosive fire. A double murder. And that's just the start

When DCI Michael Lambert is called out to an apparent house fire, he knows it can't be routine. Instead he finds the remains of a burnt house, a traumatised child and two corpses - one of whom is a senior police officer.

Lambert's got other problems. Anti-corruption are onto his boss. His relationship is on the rocks. He can't get over his ex-wife and he keeps blacking out.

But when a detective has been murdered the stakes are too high to get distracted. All is not as it seems. As the investigation continues Lambert realises he is getting drawn into something altogether bigger and more terrifying than he could ever have imagined...

Trust no one.

Gripping, chilling to its core and full of twists, the powerful new DCI Michael Lambert from Matt Brolly is perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Helen H. Durrant and Michael Hambling.
