An unputdownable tense and gritty British detective thriller
Meet Simon Fenchurch, Detective Inspector working the Met’s East London beat. Honest and funny but damaged, he’s working a case that could give him answers to his deepest trauma…
The body of a young woman is found on the streets of East London, in the shadow of the City’s gleaming towers. No ID on her, just hard-earned cash. But there is no doubting the ferocity of the attack.
DI Simon Fenchurch takes charge but, as his team tries to identify her and piece together her murder, they’re faced with cruel indifference at every turn — nobody cares about yet another dead sex worker.
To Fenchurch, however, the victim could just as easily be Chloe, his daughter, abducted from outside his home and still missing ten years on, whose memory still haunts his days and nights, his burning obsession having killed his marriage.
When a second body is found, Fenchurch must peel back the grimy layers shrouding the London sex trade, confronting his own traumatic past while racing to undo a scheme larger, more complex and more evil than anything he could possibly have imagined.
For fans of Ian Rankin, Mark Billingham, Alex Smith and JD Kirk, The Hope That Kills is the novel that introduced readers to troubled Detective Simon Fenchurch, whose series has set the bestseller charts alight!
