Death Notice

(2018)
(The first book in the Death Notice series)
A novel by

 
 
For nearly two decades, an unsolved murder case has haunted Sergeant Zheng Haoming of the Chengdu Police Department. Eighteen years ago, two victims were murdered after being served with 'death notices'. In refined calligraphy their perceived crimes were itemised, and they were sentenced to death. The date of execution was declared, as was the name of their executioner: Eumenides.

Now, a user on an internet forum has asked the public to submit names for judgment - judgment for those the law cannot touch. Those found guilty will be punished, and there is only one sentence: death. The user's handle? Eumenides.

Does Zheng have a lead? Has a long-dormant serial killer resurfaced? Perhaps modern police techniques - criminal profiling, online surveillance and SWAT quick response teams - can catch a killer who previously evaded justice. Or perhaps the killer is more than a match for whatever the Chengdu Police Department can muster.

The first in a trilogy and a best seller in China, Death Notice is a high-octane, high-concept cat-and-mouse thriller that adds an exhilarating new gear to the police procedural.

Genre: Mystery

Praise for this book

"A splendid hall of mirrors that lures you headlong down its twisting passageways with a bounty of literary trap doors, hidden stairways, and hairpin turns. You’ll emerge breathless and eager for more." - Dan Fesperman

"Death Notice is a gritty, hard-hitting page turner set on the mean streets of a China you’ve never seen before. A first rate tale of criminal intrigue right up there with the best of Michael Connelly and Jo Nesbo . . . but with a tang all its own. Highly recommended!" - Christopher Reich
