'A powerful and intelligent thriller from a must-read writer' David Mark on BLIND ALLEY
In the 1970s, a terrifying serial killer stalked the streets of Tynemouth. The press called him the Joker. The crimes stopped - but the man was never caught.
And now he's back.
A body has been found in a sleazy motel room, murdered in exactly the same way as the Joker's first victims.
Is it a copycat? A trick? Or is the Joker at work once more?
It's only DI Jack Brady's first day back - and this will be his most twisted case yet.
As Brady digs into both the old murders and the new, he must confront revenge, betrayal, love and lies...and a truly ruthless killer.
