THE GRIPPING FIRST DCI BILLY McCARTNEY THRILLER
DCI Billy McCartney discovers the body of a key informant near Liverpool Docks - a killer setback as he closes the net on a major drug smuggling scheme.
McCartney's investigation into the murder peels back layer after layer of a decades-long dynasty of heroin trafficking - but Billy has a secret, and each revelation takes him back to an unsolved crime that he cannot leave behind.
If he is to catch the men responsible and end a lifetime's torment, he must act fast...
Praise for the DCI Billy McCartney series:
`Pace and tension in spades...'
`Violent and earthy, reflecting its inner-city locale. And did I mention the killer ending? Marvellous'

`The final few paragraphs are as magnificent as they are unexpected. You will put this book down with a sense of dizzy wonder'
