Product description


‘Gritty’ Bella

‘An impressive debut…the multicultural community of Brick Lane is sensitively evoked and the heroine is ultra-hip. It’s no surprise that she has been snapped up for television.’ Daily Mail

‘The first in a promising series, featuring a female detective who has to negotiate cultural conflicts on a daily basis.’ The Sunday Times

‘A remarkable portrayal of a crime investigation in modern, multi-cultural Britain’ Paul Finch, author of Ashes to Ashes

‘Ambitious, nuanced and original’ Rod Reynolds, author of The Dark Inside

‘Vicky Newham's TURN A BLIND EYE is a sensational debut; a current, timely police procedural featuring a DI like none you've ever seen. I loved this book!’
Karen Dionne, author of the international bestseller Home

‘'Vicky Newham is an exciting new voice on the crime scene. Turn a Blind Eye is an assured and beautifully crafted debut, rich with the glorious cultural diversity that typifies its East End setting. It's an addictive read, with a tempting array of clues to keep crime lovers glued to the pages. I loved it.' Amanda Jennings, author of In Her Wake and The Cliff House

'Maya is wonderfully complex and human, and the tension ratchets up nicely'
James Oswald, author of the Inspector Mclean series

‘A fresh and enthralling read which smacks of authenticity. A different take on the usual, tired detective story, too. I loved it’ Lisa Hall, author of Between You and Me

‘A fantastic book with an intriguing and topical crime, an authentic cast of characters, and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing to the end.’
Roz Watkins, author of The Devil’s Dice

‘Outstanding. I predict Vicky Newham’s debut will be huge in 2018’
J.M Hewitt, author of Exclusion Zone

‘Five stars from me – I loved it’
Rachel Amphlett, author of the Detective Kay Hunter series

‘a riveting start to what looks to be a compelling new series’ Jane Isaac, author of the DCI Helen Lavery and the DI Will Jackman series
