A novel by

Is this the hill you want to die on?

On her first night shift, Probationary PC Chloe Fenchurch discovers a dead body at the Tower Hill Memorial in East London. Dry as a bone, but drowned, hundreds of metres from the Thames. Worse, Chloe knows the victim — Bert Matthews, a friend of her grandfather.

DCI Simon Fenchurch takes the case, soon unpicking further mysterious deaths. Police officers from the same team, who worked the same investigation ten years ago. Where Fenchurch’s own father was Deputy SIO.

Meanwhile, Chloe investigates the suspicious disappearance of a local head teacher. The man who had an affair with her mother, that broke up her parents’ marriage. Is her father responsible? Or does he know more than he’s letting on?

As Fenchurch drills deeper, the case is hampered by the reveals from former police officer, Rob Lezard, now a media celebrity, fronting true crime shows. Shocking stories that jeopardise several serious convictions. Can Fenchurch and Chloe work together to solve a deep mystery that threatens to strike even closer to home?

Perfect for fans of Mark Billingham, Peter James and Stuart MacBride, murder is intercut with humour in this fast-paced crime thriller set on the gritty streets of East London.
