The Abbey

(2011)
(The first book in the Detective Ash Rashid series)
A novel by

 
 
In this New York Times' bestselling novel, former homicide detective Ash Rashid faces the most personal--and deadly--case of his career.

After a tragic decision that resulted in a young boy's death, Detective Ash Rashid wants out. He loves being a cop, but he's seen enough death for ten lifetimes. In another year, he'll finish law school and leave his department for good. Until then, his career is on cruise control.

Then, his teenage niece's body is found in a rich man's guest home.

The coroner calls Rachel's death an accidental overdose, but the case doesn't add up. Against orders, Ash launches an investigation to find Rachel's murderer, but the longer he searches, the more entangled he becomes in a case that hits increasingly close to home. If he doesn't solve the murder fast, his niece won't be the only family member he has to bury.

A breakaway word-of-mouth bestseller, The Abbey has sold millions of copies worldwide and spent an awfully long time on the New York Times' bestseller list [09/04/2011 - 11/20/2011].

What critics say about The Abbey:

"a properly good...thriller" John O'Connell, The Guardian

"Gripping throughout." Heat

"THE ABBEY is an engrossing, riveting work with a character who is instantly likable." - Bookreporter.com

"A great page turner, perfect for a long flight or a lounger by the pool." - Felicity Murray, The Reader

What Amazon readers are saying about The Abbey:

"Love Bosch? You'll love Ash!"

"This was a fantastic book. I was skeptical at first, because the hero was a Muslim. I thought, "Here we go, PC at work." But that wasn't the case. He has his flaws, just like everyone else, and loves his family just as much too. He drinks a bit too much to forget the horrors of his job, and eats junk food. Perfect."

"Excellent on every level. A well told story with well crafted and fascinating characters."

"In a world filled with cookie-cutter prose, where authors wear their influences like rock-band T-shirts, Culver has a gift for writing scenes that have never been written before. You NEED to read this book."
