We have a fab new book to to share with you for July which is Her Cold Eyes by Tony Black so do read on for more info on this crime novel with a difference….
Praise for Her Cold Eyes
‘Taut, with a heart-wrenchingly honest protagonist and impressive literary style, it is among the best of the new Tartan noir’
Daily Mail on Artefacts of the Dead
‘a gripping, horrifying and well-paced tale of crime fiction’
SHOTS Magazine on Summoning the Dead
She’s missing, and her mother knows who to blame. But nobody’s listening.
When the case falls to DCI Bob Valentine, however, he has no choice but to listen. Haunted by the girl’s cold gaze and her mother’s hurt, the detective soon finds himself at the centre of the most harrowing investigation of his police career.
Uncovering a ring of ritualistic abuse that leads to the highest echelons of a degraded and Satanic society, Valentine wonders how the world could contain such evils.
And then the bodies start to mount. And the demons’ defenders appear. Can the detective fight on so many fronts? Can he even hope to find the missing, never mind the guilty?
Her Cold Eyes is a harrowing journey down the most twisting, turning rabbit hole, where the screams from below might just be preferable to the ones above.
Print Length: 288 pages
