'A deftly-plotted, gripping, pulse-racing rollercoaster of a thriller . . . you're in for a treat' HARLAN COBEN 'Claustrophobic, ominous, and one hell of a ride' STUART MACBRIDE THE TENSE NEW THRILLER FROM THE 'MASTER OF SINISTER' (ANGELA CLARKE), FOR FANS OF CHRIS CARTER. Tom Killgannon, ex-undercover police officer and now in witness protection, is recalled to active service by a local police task force, headed by DS Sheridan. His mission is to befriend notorious child killer Noel Cunningham and find out where he buried the bodies of his final two victims. The catch? Tom has to obtain that information from within Blackmoor prison itself. Undercover and with no back-up, Tom soon runs into danger. In the prison is convicted gangster Dean Foley. He used to run Manchester's biggest gang, until Tom's testimony put him away for life. He recognises Tom, and so begins a cat-and-mouse game as Tom fights for survival before Foley can get his revenge. But why can't Tom reach DS Sheridan and what is the real reason he has been sent to Blackmoor prison? 'Waites is one of the best crime writers we have' MARK BILLINGHAM 'Martyn Waites is already crime fiction royalty' STEVE CAVANAGH 'Pacey but atmospheric, with a palpable sense of claustrophobia and menace' Laura Wilson, Guardian 'On a par with Ross MacDonald's Lew Archer' Sunday Times Crime Club

MEDIA REVIEWS
A deftly-plotted, gripping, pulse-racing rollercoaster of a thriller. If you haven't read Martyn Waites before, then you're in for a real treat. Stunning * Harlan Coben *
I have to say I think it's his best yet. A proper page-turner, with a claustrophobic darkness to it and an excellent cast of characters. * Stuart MacBride *
One of the very best crime writers we have * Mark Billingham *
I've long suspected that Martyn Waites belongs behind bars, and with this brilliant, pulse-raising, prison-set thriller, he's proved me right * Mick Herron *
Pacey but atmospheric, with a palpable sense of claustrophobia and menace * Laura Wilson, Guardian *
One of the brightest stars in the British crime writing firmament * John Connolly *
Full of thrills and spills and packed with danger, The Sinner is a supersonic fast-paced page turner; calling it high octane doesn't even come close to doing it justice . . . a book that made me forget to breathe * The Book Magnet *
Books like The Sinner are why I started blogging all those years ago. I wanted to make sure my love for a story which had held me gripped from first page to last could reach a wide audience and hopefully as many people as possible will be on the lookout for this book . . . The Sinner is the book I will be recommending for a good while to come. Easy 5 star score - go get it! * Grab This Book *
