Three of the hottest talents in English crime writing were forged in its dark, industrial north. Howard Linskey from County Durham is the author of seven novels, including The Search, the third in his Tom Carney series. Danielle Ramsay, author of The Last Cut: DS Harri Jacobs transferred to Newcastle from the Met in the hope of leaving her past behind: the moment where her stalker turned violent. He left her alive, saying that one day he would be back. And she ran. But a year later, she realises he has followed her from home. He’ll prove his devotion. With blood… Liverpool’s Luca Veste stormed the charts with his Murphy and Rossi series, the fourth of which is Then She Was Gone.
