A simple missing person case rapidly spirals out of control when Dylan Harper realises someone in the small town he has been sent to, still holds a grudge.

Detective Dylan Harper has been dispatched to a small town to investigate the mystery of a missing newspaper journalist. Arriving late in the evening to interview the missing man's wife, Samara Hayes, Harper instantly senses trouble. Someone is watching his every move. Seeking revenge for what Harper did years earlier.

With one eye looking over his shoulder, Harper starts digging and quickly exposes the torrid secrets of Samara's strained relationship with her husband. But just when Harper thinks the case is solved, a strange, coded message appears on his office whiteboard. Cracking the code unlocks a covert web camera. What Harper witnesses next uncovers a tangled web of deceit that threatens to change his life forever.


Dead Ground is a fantastic, fast-paced international noirthriller, and a small-town murder mystery set on the beautiful West Coast of New Zealand. If you love dark and moody, traditional detective stories, or hard-boiled crime fiction in the vein of a Raymond Chandler or Dashiell Hammett, then you are in for a real treat. A fresh new police procedural that will have you hanging in suspense until the very last page.
