SHORTLISTED FOR THE JOHN CREASEY DEBUT DAGGER AWARD 2019

'The first in a promising series'Sunday Times
'Remarkable' Paul Finch;
'Impressive'Daily Mail;

A headmistress is found strangled in an East London school, the victim of a ritualistic act of violence. Found at the scene is a single piece of card, upon which is written an ancient Buddhist precept:

I SHALL ABSTAIN FROM TAKING THE UNGIVEN.

At first, DI Maya Rahman can't help but hope this is a tragic but isolated murder. Then, the second body is found.

Faced with a community steeped in secrets and prejudice, Maya must untangle the cryptic messages left at the crime scenes to solve the deadly riddle behind the murders - before the killer strikes again.

Turn a Blind Eye is the first book in a brand-new series set in East London and starring DI Maya Rahman.

“Too graphic”

I appreciated the opportunity to read this book but, unfortunately, I couldn't get past the first 2 chapters. I'm not a squeamish person but I found the graphic descriptions of a burning body and falling... More
