Only the Dead Can Tell

Exciting, pacy, authentic with outstanding characterisation‘ ANGELA MARSONS, bestselling author of DEAD SOULS


The gripping fifteenth DSI William Lorimer thriller from Scottish bestseller Alex Gray.


*********

When Dorothy Guildford is found stabbed to death in her home, all signs point to her husband, Peter. The forensic psychologist is convinced there’s more to the case that meets the eye but Police Scotland are certain they have their man.

While DC Kirsty Wilson searches for evidence that will put Peter away for good, she is shocked to discover a link with a vast human-trafficking operation that Detective Superintendent William Lorimer has been investigating for months. But before they can interrogate him, Peter is brutally attacked.

With one person dead and another barely hanging on, the clock is ticking for DC Wilson and DSI Lorimer. And the stakes grow higher still when one of their own is kidnapped . . .

If you like Cara Hunter, Angela Marsons, Patricia Gibney, Lisa Jewell or Joy Ellis, you will be utterly gripped by this twisty, heart-stopping thriller.
