Publisher's Summary

The Commonwealth Games have come to Manchester and the city is buzzing. Caught in the commercial feeding frenzy is Tom Benwell, an advertising executive. But the pressure is getting to Tom - too many deals to make and too many lies to tell. Meanwhile, his friend DI Jon Spicer is on the fast track, showing a love for the job that borders on obsession. 

Then, in the aftermath of the Games, a string of brutal murders shatters the city's newfound spirit. Spicer gets the case. Each victim has been murdered in the same grotesque manner, yet the lack of motive leaves the police utterly baffled. With the race on, both men find themselves caught up in a nightmare where the most innocent action can cost the highest price.

Critic Reviews

"Pacy, gripping and original storytelling." (Yorkshire Post)

"The story’s dramatic events are drawn out, gradually building to a page-turning, heart-stopping – and totally unexpected – ending." (The Book Place)

Bored now

At one stage I fell asleep with it on, a combination of the text and the reader I guess. Couldn't be bothered to run it back. Life's too short for that.. It didn't spoil the story.
