'Fizzes with life' - STUART TURTON, Costa First Novel Award winner

'Fresh, inventive and funny' - MW CRAVEN, CWA Gold Dagger Award winner

'A thrilling ride with dark humour, action and a touching side that's hard to forget' SUN five stars (book of the week)

DYING IS HELL . . . SOLVING YOUR OWN MURDER IS PURGATORY

When Detective Inspector Joe Lazarus storms a Lincolnshire farmhouse, he expects to bring down a notorious drug gang; instead, he discovers his own dead body and a spirit guide called Daisy-May.

She's there to enlist him to the Dying Squad, a spectral police force made up of the recently deceased. Joe soon realises there are fates far worse than death. To escape being stuck in purgatory, he must solve his own murder. A task made all the more impossible when his memories start to fade.

Reluctantly partnering with Daisy-May, Joe faces dangers from both the living and the dead in the quest to find his killer - before they kill again.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Untameably original, so stylish and packed with a biting humour * Rob Parker, author of A Wanted Man *
THE DYING SQUAD is one of those books that fizzes with life. Every page has a new idea, or a funny line, and Daisy May is just a brilliant character to spend time with. Also, the ending arrives in a steel-tipped boot. Well played Adam * Stuart Turton, Sunday Times bestelling author and winner of the Costa First Novel Award for The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle *
Excellent. Funny, creepy and "oh no he did not just throw that twist in there" compelling' * Anna Stephens, author of The Godblind trilogy *
Whip-smart, fresh with a dash of dark humour, The Dying Squad is a wildly entertaining read. Highly recommended * Adam Hamdy *
Grim, wry and inventive, a twisting tale with both guts and heart. Never has Lincolnshire seemed more desolate, or more menacing * David Wragg, The Black Hawks *
A thrilling ride with dark humour, action and a touching side that's hard to forget * The Sun *
