Detective Harry Virdee should be at home with his wife. Impending fatherhood should be all he can think about but he's been suspended from work just as the biggest case of the year lands on what would have been his desk. He can't keep himself away. 

Determined to restore his reputation, Harry is obliged to take to the shadows in search of notorious ex-convict and prime suspect, Lucas Dwight. But as the motivations of the murder threaten to tip and already unstable city into riotous anarchy, Harry finds his preconceptions turned on their head as he discovers what it's like to be on the other side of the law...

City of Sinners

It is an ordinary Yorkshire morning, cold and miserable. 

The streets are not yet busy. Police cars hurriedly pull up in the centre of town, but none of their lights are flashing and the sirens are silent. 

A body has been found, elaborately and painstakingly positioned to send a message. But what message? And to who?

It's DCI Harry Verde's job to find out. But Harry doesn't know that the killer is watching him, that the killer is coming for him. 

Because this is personal.
