How long can a man escape judgement? A dark and atmospheric thriller from the award-winning author of A QUIET BELIEF IN ANGELS.

It should have been easy for Vincent Madigan. Take four hundred thousand dollars away from some thieves, and who could they go to for help? No one at all.

Madigan is charming, effective, and knows how to look after himself. The only problem is that he's up to his neck in debt to the drug kingpin of Harlem. This one heist will free Madigan and finally give him a chance to get his life back on track.

But things go wrong when Madigan is forced to kill his co-conspirators and a child is shot in the crossfire. Now both sides of the law are hunting him down, and the cop assigned to lead the case is the very last person he could have expected . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS

Classic noir, a journey to the dark corners of man's foolishness, where nothing is ever what it seems and no one can ever be trusted. Ellory is beginning to sound like the master [James Ellroy]. I can think of no higher praise. - DAILY MAIL

As ever the writing is pungent and lacerating. This is a book that takes no prisoners and Ellory's continuing commercial success is assured. - DAILY EXPRESS

A pedal to the metal thriller - IRISH INDEPENDENT

R.J. Ellory has produced another fine novel to follow Bad Signs and is becoming as prolific as he is good. With A Dark and Broken Heart, his eleventh novel, the author has captured the very essence of what makes good men act badly and why bad men act as intrinsically as they do, and is certainly an addition to any crime fan's "must read" list this summer. - WE LOVE THIS BOOK

tough, poetic, streaming prose - CATHOLIC HERALD

This thriller is written with so much power it pins you to your seat. I haven't read a better cop story since... well Ellory's own bestseller Saints of New York... A superbly riveting read - PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH

As thrilling as a ride on the Coney Island Cyclone - MAIL ON SUNDAY

Gripping thriller - BIG ISSUE IN THE NORTH

R.J. Ellory has carved himself a place at the top of British crime fiction with his dark and obsessively driven detective novels... a gripping read - CATHOLIC HERALD

Ellory's books are stand-alones - introducing us to a whole new set of characters and conflicts with each book. And it is to his credit that he always succeeds in rigidly maintaining our attention throughout his vast, sprawling narratives - GOOD BOOK GUIDE
