'Superb'

LEE CHILD.

LONDON, 1930.
Sooty, sulphurous, and malign: no woman should be out on a night like this. A spate of violent deaths the details too foul to print has horrified the capital and the smog-bound streets are deserted. But Rachel Savernake the enigmatic daughter of a notorious hanging judge is no ordinary woman. To Scotland Yard's embarrassment, she solved the Chorus Girl Murder, and now she's on the trail of another killer.

Jacob Flint, a young newspaperman temporarily manning The Clarion's crime desk, is looking for the scoop that will make his name. He's certain there is more to the Miss Savernake's amateur sleuthing than meets the eye. He's not the only one. His predecessor on the crime desk was of a similar mind not that Mr Betts is ever expected to regain consciousness after that unfortunate accident...

Flint's pursuit of Rachel Savernake will draw him ever-deeper into a labyrinth of deception and corruption. Murder-by-murder, he'll be swept ever-closer to its dark heart to that ancient place of execution, where it all began and where it will finally end: Gallows Court.

'Gripping' Peter Robinson.

'Satisfyingly twisty' Simon Brett.

'Dark, yet dazzling' Peter Lovesey.

'Superb a pitch-perfect blend of Golden Age charm and sinister modern suspense, with a main character to die for. This is the book Edwards was born to write' Lee Child.

Review:

'Edwards has managed, brilliantly, to combined a Golden Age setting with a pace that is bang up to date. A great sense of the era observed through a cut-throat-sharp eye, every page dripping with brilliant period authenticity' Peter James.

'A ripping tale of retribution and rough justice, set against a finely realised 1930s London. It reads as if Ruth Rendell were channelling Edgar Wallace' Mick Herron.

'A mean plot liberally spiced with mystery, suspense and action. A thoroughly gripping read!' Peter Robinson.

'Edwards has set a satisfyingly twisty plot against the satisfyingly murky background of 1930s London' Simon Brett.

'This is no country house murder mystery, however, but a fast-paced and assured thriller set in 1930s London; it'll keep you reading, breathless, until the very last page' Ann Cleeves.

'The writing is sumptuous, the evocation of the period down to the finest detail glorious, and the mystery itself a wonderfully refreshing take on the "psychological noir" genre. The twist and the terrible secret at the heart of the murders are twin stings in the tail of a classy and beautifully crafted novel' Vaseem Khan.

'Utterly compelling from start to finish, truly satisfying twists and turns and a wonderful heroine at its dark heart. I loved every single page of it' Robert Thorogood.

'Everything we have come to expect from Martin Edwards: a lovely sense of place, a tight plot, dry humor, and deftly drawn characters. Welcome to the Thirties!' --Laurie R. King

'Martin Edwards brings the Golden Age of crime fiction back, with a unique twist, in this superbly crafted mystery set in the 1930s. A rare treat!' --Ragnar Jonasson

'Highly entertaining a delightful, old-fashioned mystery to be savoured' --Shari Lapena

Book Description:

The first in a new series of fast-paced, twisty thrillers set in 1930s London.
