I couldn't put it down' Robert Bryndza, author of The Girl in the Ice Discover the gripping, twist-filled start to a fantastic new London-set crime thriller series starring morally corrupt DI Ray Drake - the perfect new addiction for fans of LUTHER. TWO CHILDHOOD FRIENDS...ONE BECAME A DETECTIVE...ONE BECAME A KILLER...Thirty years ago, the Longacre Children's Home stood on a London street where once-grand Victorian homes lay derelict.
There its children lived in terror of Gordon Tallis, the home's manager. Then Connor Laird arrived: a frighteningly intense boy who quickly became Tallis' favourite criminal helper. Soon after, destruction befell the Longacre, and the facts of that night have lain buried ...until today.
Now, a mysterious figure, the Two O'Clock Boy, is killing all who grew up there, one by one. DI Ray Drake will do whatever it take to stop the murders - but he will go even further to cover up the truth. 'Wreaks havoc with your assumptions.
Hill has a hell of a career ahead of him' Alex Marwood, author of The Wicked Girls and The Darkest Secret 'Utterly gripping, packed with unforgettable characters - and SO well-written. The twists had me reeling!' Louise Voss
