A killing without mercy. A crime with no motive. A thriller from the author of LAST FLIGHT TO STALINGRAD

Three random killings. Or something much, much worse?

DS Jimmy Suttle is trying to get his life back on track. His marriage has fallen apart and he rarely sees his young daughter, Grace. But then a murder shuts the door on the chaos of his personal life...

The victim was shot through the head at the wheel of his car on a lonely moorland road. The only witness? His two-year-old son, strapped into the rear child seat. Within days, two more killings, equally professional, equally without motive.

Meanwhile, Suttle's estranged wife is embarking on an investigation of her own in the world of journalism. But the story brings her to the question at the very heart of Jimmy's case - what does it take to make a man kill?

MEDIA REVIEWS
In all his [Hurley] books, the humanity of his police officers is as important as their ingenuity as detectives, in fact it is their sensitivity that makes this thriller... admirable rather than tasteless... the second in the new series, is as thought-provoking and vivid as his previous writings * LITERARY REVIEW *
Hurley is a giant of British police procedural novels, and with Western Approaches we find an author on top of his game. As good as, if not better than Peter James and Ian Rankin. -- Mark Timlin * CRIME TIME *
Graham Hurley's determination to look the seamy reality full in the face is refreshing because so rare...Hurley's devastating account of Suttle's marriage is one of the best things he has done. -- Jake Kerridge * DAILY TELEGRAPH *
Skillfully combining murder mystery and police procedural drama with a West Country travelogue, this is a satisfying read. * SUNDAY MIRROR *
TOUCHING DISTANCE is a storming read and is yet another fantastic addition to an already addictive series * CRIMESQUAD *
