THE SECOND NOVEL FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BURNING MEN, FEATURING DI ALEX FINN AND DCI MATTIE PAULSEN

5* RATING ON NETGALLEY

'Don't think I've loved a Detective as much since Idris Elba's John Luther'
'Will Schindler's books have all the hallmarks of future classics of this genre'
'A sharp police procedural with an interesting plot'
'The greatest strengths lies in the terrific police team whose characters are so well fleshed out they feel real'
'I loved the storyline, it kept me on edge till the end'
'A real contender, which is up there with the best'

'Leave your daughter with me, or I will kill you both'

It felt like a normal Friday evening before Karl and his daughter Leah were ambushed by a figure in a blank mask. At knife point, Karl is forced to make an impossible choice. Stay and die, or walk away from Leah and take this thug's word that they both will live.

Should Karl trust a villain and leave his daughter with a knife at her throat? Could he ever live with himself if he did?

It's not long before more seemingly unconnected and innocent people across London are offered a deal in exchange for their life. More blood is spilled, more families shattered, and more people are left to suffer with the consequences of their decisions.

DI Alex Finn and DC Mattie Paulsen must hunt for a killer that appears to have no face, no motive and no conscience before more victims are forced to make their choice.

This is second in Will Shindler's Finn and Paulsen series - a British detective series that ranks with Mark Billingham, M.J. Arlidge and Stuart MacBride.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The explosive opening hooked me straight in . . . With a cast of credible characters, a twisting plotline and some ingenious twists, the book develops at a cracking pace * Lesley Sanderson, author of The Orchid Girls *
An outstanding page-turner * Robin Morgan-Bentley, author of The Wreckage *
Warm and dealing with recognisable emotions, this is the best kind of police procedural * Literary Review *
DI Alex Finn and DCI Mattie Paulsen are back, this time chasing someone who forces their victims to make an impossible life-and-death decision. This is sitting up and begging to be developed for television * Sunday Times, Pick of the Week *
Riveting . . . Shindler's second novel displays an acute understanding of family dynamics, easily fulfilling the promise of his debut, The Burning Men * Sunday Times, Book of the month *
An excellent second outing for the cop pair following their introduction in The Burning Men - and as fine a police procedural as you'd want for a cold winter's night * Weekend Sport *
The Killing Choice is the second in a series that opened with The Burning Men , and is another adept police procedural, building the sense of dread to breaking point as Finn and Paulsen rush to uncover any links between the victims. This is an immersive read that leaves the reader wondering how they would react if faced with such an unimaginable choice * Observer *

“The Killing Choice”

This is the second in the series featuring DI Alex Finn and sidekick DC Mattie Paulson so you could do well reading The Burning Man first for background and character development reasons. It's a cracker too so,... More
