DI Kerry Darke
A novel by

Crime and supernatural fiction collide in the first in a new series of thrillers from the best-selling author of "Dead Men’s Dust."

The ghosts of her past and present haunt Detective Inspector Kerry Darke.

As a child she witnessed the abduction of her ten-year-old sister Sally, the final victim of the murderous Fell Man, a terrifying serial killer whose hunting grounds were the bleak and windswept fells of northern England. Sally has never been found, and the Fell Man never identified.

Decades later, Kerry is a detective inspector tasked with combatting the rise in violence throughout London. When another ten-year-old girl is murdered in a gang related drive-by shooting a ghost of Kerry’s past returns to trouble her, but the mysterious wraith known only as Girl is not the most frightening thing to be resurrected…

Tortured by the vengeful spirit of Swain, a notorious gang leader, Kerry struggles to maintain a grasp on the case and her sanity, but she is more determined than ever to lay all her ghosts to rest. To do so she must agree to a pact with her personal devil. In return Swain promises to lead her to the Fell Man…but what he demands is unthinkable.

That is until the Fell Man returns and more girls are snatched...
