THE FOLLOW (Killer Reads, 14th December 2018)

Danger is never far behind…

A fast-paced and riveting crime novel and the first in a new Brighton-set police procedural series featuring PC Gareth Bell. Perfect for fans of Peter James.

He knows the man is guilty. And he will do anything to prove it…

PC Gareth Bell watches Quentin Davey – the psychopath who stabbed Bell’s partner – stroll out of court a free man. Somebody on the inside tampered with the evidence, and now one of Brighton’s most dangerous criminals is back on the streets again.

Determined to bring Davey’s campaign of terror to an end, Bell begins a personal mission for revenge that takes him onto the other side of the law and into the dark, violent underworld of the glamourous seaside city.

But the deeper he goes, the more his loved ones are targeted and his career spirals out of control. Soon he faces a horrifying choice: risk everything he holds dear, or let the man who tried to kill his partner walk free…
