The Edge of Truth

(The fifth book in the Michael Brady series)
A novel by

There are three sides to every story
Yours. Theirs.
And the Truth.

Michael Brady is back.
The Edge of Truth is the fifth book in the series. And there’s a ghost from Brady’s past…

‘This series gets better and better and better.’
‘Brilliant. Brady is fast becoming the Yorkshire Rebus.’

The push that sent Diane Macdonald over the cliff edge was surprisingly gentle.
She was walking her dog on the cliff top. Runswick Bay, a few miles north of Whitby.
Thirty-six hours later her body is found at the bottom of the cliff.
Brady’s convinced it’s murder.
But there’s no evidence.
And only one witness.
Gerry Donoghue, a homeless ex-veteran. A man with a deep, dark secret.
And now he’s disappeared.
Leaving Brady with Diane’s husband, Graham Macdonald – the ghost from Brady’s past.

“It was Christmas Eve. We were eighteen or nineteen. Just back from our first term at university. Four of us went to Robin Hood’s Bay. Why we didn’t just get pissed in Whitby I’ll never know. Lizzie gets into a car driven by a boy called Graham Macdonald. His dad’s the Chief Constable.”
“This isn’t going to end well.”
“There was a crash. Lizzie died at the scene. Macdonald wasn’t there. A crash that killed Lizzie, he escaped with a few bruises. The son of the Chief Constable was running away. Scampering across the fields, hand-in-hand with his guardian angel.”

Twenty-five years later and Macdonald is an MP.
And a good friend of Brady’s boss, Kershaw.
So there’s pressure. Plenty of pressure.
And Michael Brady’s not dealing with it very well.
He starts to make increasingly rash decisions – putting his personal and his professional relationships at risk.

But you know Brady by now.
He won’t let it go.
can’t let it go…

‘Another excellent read from Mark Richards that I couldn’t put down. I was hooked from the very first chapter. He draws you into the story with relatable characters and intense storylines. That work I was supposed to be doing? I completely ignored it until I’d finished the book…’

The Michael Brady books are perfect for fans of J D Kirk, Jason Dalgleish, T G Reid, David Gatward – and anyone who likes characters who’ll become lifelong friends.
