Dark Angel

(The ninth book in the DI Jon Spicer series)
A novel by

Something deadly is moving through the Manchester night.

Bodies of rough sleepers are being found in abandoned buildings and forgotten corners. On the street, rumours circulate of a raven-winged presence that appears and vanishes at will.

Searching for a more rational explanation, Detective Jon Spicer is shocked to discover a single black feather at the scene of the latest death.

Then the troubled daughter of Manchester’s mayor runs away. Tasked with finding her, Jon is sent to live among the city’s homeless community. Once there, he quickly realises that, after sunset, anyone without shelter should fear the Dark Angel.
