A MURDERER TERRORIZES LONDON

Detectives Ray Paterson and Johnny Clocks attend the scene of a brutal murder on the banks of the River Thames.

Someone’s head is found with a star carved into their forehead. The rest of their body is buried in the mud.

The next day the airwaves are hacked. A live-stream shows a man imprisoned in a box. He also has a star cut into his head.

Then the man is drowned alive in the box.

TWO MORE MEN ARE MURDERED ON LIVE TV, TWO MORE WILL DIE WITHIN HOURS

Paterson and Clocks race against time to make sure their next breath isn’t their last.

But this enemy is far more deceptive and deadly than any they've encountered before.

THEY WILL DO ANYTHING FOR REVENGE. WHY?

Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Damien Boyd, Rachel Abbott, Patricia Gibney or Martina Cole.

What readers are saying about THEIR DYING BREATH

“This is well written with suspense starting with the very first page.” Linda

Almost impossible to put down.” Barbara

“Another first class story from Steve Parker that fairly screams along! Paterson and Clocks are the most unusual but most interesting police guys around and the banter between them is excellent. Then ending is totally unexpected and this book is a must read.” Ron

“Another hellish case for Ray and Clocks, full of drama, twists and Clocks humour with a true cliffhanger conclusion. The duo really do have more than nine lives.” Donna

Absolutely cracking read from start to finish - couldn’t put it down. Love this series of books and hope there’s another one on the way soon.” Nerys

TWO DETECTIVES WHO HATE EVERYTHING ABOUT EACH OTHER MUST WORK TOGETHER

Detective Superintendent Ray Paterson is a young and (thanks to family money) wealthy womaniser, separated from his model wife and tipped to be the youngest ever commissioner of police. He knows he’s weak when it comes to practical policing and struggles to find a place among his peers, desperate to be a good policeman and not just a 'climber'.

Detective Sergeant Johnny Clocks is a foul-mouthed, working-class officer. He grew up surrounded by rogues and villains to become a first-class thief taker with the Met police. However, his childish attitude has short-circuited his career and he spends his days antagonising as many people as he can.

Detective Sergeant Dave Jordan is an old-school copper who trusts his instincts but relies on evidence. He is typical in that his marriage has broken down and he's been unable to form a relationship since.

THE AUTHOR
Steve Parker is a retired police officer who served for 20 years in numerous high-profiles squads.

THE SETTING
Bermondsey is an area of London nestled on the banks of the River Thames. It once had a reputation for housing more armed robbers, murderers and career criminals than anywhere else in the country. Now one of the most upmarket places to live and work in London, it has all but severed itself from its working-class roots. Home to the iconic Tower Bridge and crammed with expensive apartments, art galleries, fancy restaurants and famous residents. But for the police, those who truly know, Bermondsey never lost its roots . . . or its reputation.
