A novel by

Charlie Pegg was a wanted man.

A skilled joiner, he had full access to the homes of many wealthy figures, including Old Mead Park, a luxury block of flats that is home to the notorious gangster, Jim Berridge.

With his insider's access and personable charm, Pegg made the ideal informant.

Listening to voicemails and inspecting the houses, he supplied valuable tip-offs to the police.

But the police can't offer him any protection from the criminals he uncovered.

A 'snout' has plenty of enemies - enemies who know how to kill, and how to cover their tracks.

When Pegg's body is found stabbed in a gutter on his way to deliver his latest intel, it quickly becomes clear that this was a professional job by trained killers.

For Superintendent Lambert and Sergeant Hook, this will not be a straight-forward case. There will be no cooperation from the criminal underworld.

What secret was Pegg about to reveal?

And which of his enemies would go so far as to kill to protect it?

Starting with Pegg's tip-off, Lambert and Hook must pick up his trail and follow his leads to find the killer.

But when their chief suspect is shot dead in his car, the trail runs cold...

Death of a Nobody is a gripping crime thriller featuring the popular detective duo, Lambert and Hook.

It is book eight in the Lambert and Hook Detective series.
