"I started it and just had to finish it almost in one. It starts off like a lot of cops and robbers stories but what you don't realise is that it's sucking you in. Then BANG, we get the first of several really clever twists and you're hooked!" Richard Dee - Author
"Disney wouldn't make a film of this, but Tarantino might" TheVoiceFM
"It's a crime thriller with a twist, and I feel it really adds something extra that many in this genre lack. One of my favourite authors is Michael Connelly and I can see DC Deans becoming as popular as Harry Bosch" S G LAWTON - Goodreads
"Definitely the sort of book you cannot put down once you've started. I read it in 1 day!" Anne-Marie Johnson - Goodreads
"Mortain knows his stuff, keeps it interesting and it moves the story along at a brilliant pace, culminating in a stunning ending." Ruth - Goodreads
He’s a detective. She’s a medium. When both worlds collide – it's murder!
"The characters are real and vibrant; the storyline and pace is gripping. Definitely the best book I have read for a very long time."
Detective “Deano” Deans and his wife have suffered years of agony waiting to become parents. He is just hours away from discovering the success of his wife’s fertility treatment, but a beautiful young student has gone missing and he must now find her.
Forced to leave his wife at home, Deans travels to a small coastal village in search of the girl, yet this is no pleasure trip and he soon discovers a brutal murder.
When a medium, Denise Moon claims to have vital information relating to the horrific crime, Deans dismisses it out of hand as psychic gibberish.
But as she feeds him with accurate details about the killing, Deans has to accept that she has a paranormal ability that he simply cannot ignore.
They are closing in on a sophisticated killer - one that is always a step ahead of the game, but Deans has an even bigger problem … he can hear the voice of his dead victim.
Faced with a ‘spiritual awakening’, Deans’ life is in turmoil, but destiny has dealt its hand and Deans has placed his family in mortal danger …
“Gripping isn't the word for it. I was totally hooked from the start and I read a lot of books - but this has to be right up at the top - brilliant story, brilliant characters."
