'A thrilling new talent' PETER JAMES

'Creepy, twisted and gripping' SUN

'Dark, compelling and expertly paced' M. W. CRAVEN
___________________

On a cold winter's morning, the body of a young boy is discovered in Epping Forest.

The body is pristine and peaceful, his head resting gently on a pillow, an angel pendant clenched in his small fist. It is a murder as carefully planned as it is brutal, and there's one person DI Bishop needs back on his team to help solve such a calculated crime.

Holly Wakefield, criminal psychologist for the Met Police, is better than anyone Bishop knows at getting inside the brains of psychopaths. But with the body count rising, it's going to take all their strength and resolve to stop the serial killer before any more angels are put to their rest . . .

A breathtaking, page-turning thriller perfect for fans of Mark Billingham, Stuart MacBride and Robert Bryndza.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Creepy, twisted and gripping - Sun

Dark, compelling and expertly paced . . . one of the best police procedurals I've read for a long time - M. W. Craven

A must for all crime readers - Woman's Way

Deftly plotted, propulsive, psychologically astute . . . totally horrifying

Absolutely gripping . . . It reminded me of Thomas Harris - the same combination of terror and the detective pitting wits against a psychopath. I had to keep reading, while dreading what was coming next - Toby Faber

Another dark, observant and addictive Holly Wakefield thriller which I highly recommend - Caroline England

Praise for the Holly Wakefield series:

Mark Griffin is a thrilling new talent, destined to become a big name in British crime writing

Mightily impressive . . . deviously plotted, with a bleak thread of intriguing twists - Daily Mail

Meticulously plotted and devious in its execution, Mark Griffin's debut novel is utterly compelling. I can't wait to read the rest of the Holly Wakefield series

Wow. I read this in less than a day. As many twists and turns as a rollercoaster! A fascinating lead character with a deliciously dark secret. It's the kind of writing which grabs you and won't let you go
