Dead Ringer

(The first book in the DI Chilcott series)
A novel by

They left him for dead. Now he’s back. And he wants revenge.

When the body of a young woman sparks a manhunt on the streets of Bristol, striking similarities to another murder suggest there’s only one detective for the job—old-school maverick cop, DI Robbie Chilcott.

Bitter from a promotional snub and professionally embarrassed by his last failed murder case, DI Chilcott has a chance to restore his pride and get even with a ruthless serial killer. But as the investigation deepens, the realisation dawns that he is hunting a methodical, calculating and brutal enemy.

As the body count rises, DI Chilcott establishes a shocking truth—the victims aren’t random—they are dead because of who they are. Now it’s a race against time to prevent further murders.

Can Chilcott protect the next victims before the faceless killer strikes again, or has he become the next target?

Written by an ex-CID detective and set in the west country city of Bristol, this fast-paced British crime novel is a gripping and authentic murder mystery that will keep you engrossed to the very last page.

Dead Ringer is the first book in the DI Robbie Chilcott series of crime thrillers. This book is perfect for fans of LJ Ross, Angela Marsons, J M Dalgliesh, Simon McCleave and Alex Smith.
