First impressions are everything…
A man is found strangled in his home. DI Max Thatcher is assigned the case. And a new partner.
Enter DS Isaac Mills. Thatcher doesn’t know about this young man joining him on his cases. But the pair of them get right into the thick of it as they interview the victim’s family, including his wife, kids, and mistress.
In this exclusive prequel, Thatcher and Mills meet on their first case together. But is this, as they say, the beginning of a beautiful friendship?
Our conscience is the dead talking to us…
DI Mills deals with dead bodies, not ghosts. He keeps his investigations grounded and firmly in the real world. But when a ghost tour guide is found dead, it’s only natural for theories to turn… supernatural.
But Mills is having none of it. He wanted to search for clear motives and real leads. However, those are few and far between. The theories get wilder when another guide is killed near the same spot as the first murder. Mills is forced to admit that this case may be weirder than any he’s investigated before.
If Mills and his partner Fry can’t cut through the unnatural fears and find a realistic solution to this other-worldly murder, they might be the ones to disappear.
Oliver Davies was born in Sussex and raised in London, but never felt at home until he settled in the soggy but beautiful Yorkshire dales. Brought up on crime novels borrowed second-hand from his dad, he’s always wished his life involved less laundry and more car chases, though writing is probably safer. Between tussling with his several dogs and rambling the moors, Oliver finds time for writing moody police detectives, playing the guitar, and occasionally even communicates with the outside world.
