Even the dead like to keep their secrets.

When William Gove, a dying millionaire and patriarch of a vast estate in Essex, asks Daniel Connell to execute his will, Daniel has no idea what he's getting himself into. Rather than leave his fortune to his three children, Gove has chosen ten names at random from the phone book. When he dies, Daniel sets out to track down the recipients. But a chance remark by one of them - that perhaps this is God's way of compensating her for the disappearance of her daughter - gives him pause. When another recipient also mentions a missing person, Daniel begins to suspect that there may be something darker at work.

What he discovers is both shocking and dangerous - it sets him on a lethal trajectory with a powerful family who believe themselves to be above the law, no matter how dark and twisted their secrets may be....

MEDIA REVIEWS
I enthused about Thorne's debut, East of Innocence, which featured disgraced City of London lawyer and hard man Daniel Connell... Authentic, fast-moving and with a wry ear for dialogue, it turned out to be a hit... This excellent second outing for Connell sees him answering a plea from his troubled former lover... So begins an investigation that takes him to Afghanistan, but also sends him to the ugly depths of the Essex underworld. Thorne used to write jokes for comedians, but there is barely a laugh in this grippingly good crime story. * Daily Mail on NOTHING SACRED *
This is a carefully plotted thriller, realistic in its violence and with strong memorable characters. Soon to be adapted into a TV series, it is fast paced and edgy without losing any of its credibility * We Love This Book on EAST OF INNOCENCE *
Everyone has a picture of an Essex crime novel. But David Thorne's East of Innocence is a fresh take on this famous county * Bookseller on EAST OF INNOCENCE *
