★★★★★ "Emotive and gripping with an excellent cast of relatable characters, Dead of Night is the perfect beginning to a dark and delicious new series. I’m looking forward to book two already!" - Mel Sherratt, author of the Detective Allie Shenton Series

A chilling new detective series from the author of the international best-selling, critically acclaimed Sam Pope series.

Someone is killing...

After three years undercover in some of the most dangerous gangs in the UK, DS Jack Townsend, along with his wife and young daughter, relocate to a pleasant village in Buckinghamshire. A promise of a fresh start, a chance to reconnect, and the opportunity to join the Thames Valley Police's Specialist Crimes Unit (SCU).

Headed up by DI Isabella King, the SCU is handed its first case when the body of a woman is found in the woods of Wycombe Rye, the victim of a brutal stabbing.

As the body count begins to rise, and with the clock ticking, the newly formed team must navigate their new surroundings, a depleted budget, and a quiet town shaken to its core to stop a killer who is spiralling out of control..

Every victim deserves justice.
