book | Fiction | Feb 2019

‘Kate London, the new rising star of crime fiction, is the real thing. Read everything she writes.’ Tony Parsons

Please don't let me die. Please don't. 

When a teenage boy steps out of the shadows of Gallowstree Lane and asks a passer-by for help it’s already too late. His life is bleeding out on the London street. 

The murder threatens to derail Operation Perseus, a covert police investigation into the Eardsley Bluds, an organised criminal network. Detective Kieran Shaw can’t and won’t allow that happen. But fifteen-year-old Ryan has other ideas. He’s witnessed the death of his best friend, and now he wants someone to pay…

As loyalties collide, a chain of events is triggered that threatens everyone with a connection to Gallowstree Lane.

Gallowstree Lane is a solid police procedural, with a good cast that I hope to see back again.
