'INCENDIARY, TIMELY AND AUTHENTIC' Crime Monthly 'ORIGINAL AND DISTURBING' Sunday Times 'UNDERLINES HOW FINE A WRITER NEWHAM IS' Daily Mail

A tragic accident - or a ruthless killer?

When a flash mob on Brick Lane is interrupted by a sudden explosion, DI Maya Rahman dashes to the scene. A fire is raging through one of the city's most infamous streets, the site of Maya's childhood home. And the discovery of two charred bodies in the burnt-out building transforms an arson attack into a murder case.

With witnesses too caught up in the crowd to have seen anything useful, Maya is facing a complex investigation without a single lead. And, when reports of a second, even more horrifying crime land on Maya's desk, it's obvious there's more at stake than she could ever have imagined. She must find the answers - before all of East London goes up in flames.

Praise for Out of the Ashes:

“Vivid and authentic storytelling”

I loved D.I. Maya Rahman’s first outing in Turn A Blind Eye and so eagerly looked forward to more of her East End investigations. I’m delighted to report that Out of the Ashes more than hits the sweet spot.
