'If you are a fan of British police procedurals, add Shame the Devil to your must-read list.' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Reader Review

Sometimes catching a killer means looking close to home…

A young father is stabbed to death on his front doorstep in East London. Kieran Judd was a well-liked sports coach and family man, so why would he be targeted for such a brutal death?

D.I. Matthew Denning and D.S. Molly Fisher are quickly thrown into an investigation with no leads to follow … and when the body of respectable schoolteacher Susan Elliot is discovered, her murder mirroring that of Kieran’s, the case gets even more complex.

Faced with two murders with no obvious motive, East London Met worry that a random serial killer stalks their streets. But as Denning and Fisher uncover a dark secret linking the two victims, they are sent spiralling into an investigation in which exposing the truth will bring them directly into the sights of a killer with nothing to lose…

A gripping, twisty London-set detective novel that will thrill fans of Peter James, Line of Duty and Robert Bryndza.
