Cold Ground

(She's Next / Dead People Sleep)
(The second book in the DCI Reece series)
A novel by

He Knows Your Name . . . Where You Live . . . And wants you Dead.

By day, Dr Richard Wellman is a consultant anaesthetist working at the University Hospital in Cardiff. At night, he’s a warped serial killer with a terrifying method of choosing and killing his victims.

Three months ago, DCI Brân Reece was shot during a raid on the Midnight Club. He's been on sick leave since. But when an American medical student is stabbed to death just outside the hospital grounds, Reece is brought back early: the young man's parents are wealthy and therefore have influence.

When Reece learns that one of the student's housemates has also died – seemingly of natural causes – he can't help but think the cases are linked, despite the evidence suggesting otherwise. When a second nurse dies, Reece knows he's on to something.

With top brass wanting him to concentrate his efforts on bringing the American's killer to justice, Reece's refusal to ignore an escalating number of attacks on women causes conflict within the Cardiff Bay police station.

But Reece is no stranger to conflict. He's never been one to run with the hounds. There's a serial killer loose on the city's streets and the DCI is hell-bent on bringing the perpetrator to justice.

COLD GROUND is a character-driven police thriller set against the spectacular backdrop of Cardiff and the Brecon Beacons National Park. It will appeal to readers of JD Kirk, Stuart MacBride, Jason Dalgliesh, and Ian Rankin. Can also be read as a standalone.

★★★★★ "A Great Read" - Joy Ellis - best-selling author of the DI Nikki Galena Series.
