SHE LEANED TOWARDS ME, HER EYES LOOKING DEEP INTO MINE. RIGHT THEN I KNEW THAT I WAS GOING TO DO WHAT SHE ASKED.
Black journalist Sam Dean has a bad feeling about the job TV producer Wyndham Davis is offering: tracking down a man mixed up in two brutal murders on a tough London housing estate. But when a figure from Sam's past re-emerges and puts emotional pressure on him, Sam finds he can't say no.
As he embarks on his search for the missing man, Sam realises there's more than one agenda here. There are secrets from Wyndham's life influencing events and Sam is getting sucked right into the dirty heart of the mystery. Tough, vivid and shocking, 'An Image to Die For' is a disturbing and compelling read from one of Britain's foremost crime writers.
