9780099578253: The House on the Hill (Dci Billy Mccartney 2)

DCI Billy McCartney has gone to ground, disillusioned with his job. When a runaway turns up on his doorstep, her story plunges Mac back to the summer of 1990, and one of his most traumatic cases.

McCartney and his partner DS Millie Baker are in Ibiza, on a joint venture with the Spanish serious crime agency. Their objective: to infiltrate the Liverpool-based drug gang responsible for a wave of ecstasy-related deaths. But their stakeout takes both Mac and Millie to the heart of a dark empire whose tentacles stretch from Ireland to Morocco, and whose activities include industrial-scale drug production – and terrorism. They’re close to their big bust when Millie is abducted by the gang, and killed. McCartney never quite recovers from it.

The waif who knocks on Mac’s door twenty-four years later has escaped from those same captors; a dynasty of international dope dealers based high in the Moroccan Rif. What she tells McCartney blasts his apathy away, and sends him on a mission that goes far beyond law and order. This is his chance for redemption.

Review:

"It’s a thriller – pure, simple and honest. And it’s a terrific one too, satisfyingly fast and nasty… [It] has pace and tension in spades. When you get to the bottom of the page, there’s no choice but to turn over, regardless of what time you have to get up for work. Really, what more could you want from a thriller?" (Dominic Kearny Irish News)

"A suspenseful thriller." (Rachel Roberts Big Issue)

Book Description:

An escaped runaway, a Moroccan drug dynasty - and a crime that will take DCI Billy McCartney from Merseyside to Marrakech...
