'The first in a promising series'Sunday Times
'Remarkable' Paul Finch;
A headmistress is found strangled in an East London school, the victim of a ritualistic act of violence. Found at the scene is a single piece of card, upon which is written an ancient Buddhist precept:
I SHALL ABSTAIN FROM TAKING THE UNGIVEN.
At first, DI Maya Rahman can't help but hope this is a tragic but isolated murder. Then, the second body is found.
Faced with a community steeped in secrets and prejudice, Maya must untangle the cryptic messages left at the crime scenes to solve the deadly riddle behind the murders - before the killer strikes again.
Turn a Blind Eye is the first book in a brand-new series set in East London and starring DI Maya Rahman.
