A brilliant, authentic and relentlessly pacy crime novel by a former Met Detective.
'Utterly authentic... with an emotional heart that's hard to ignore.' - Daily Mail
Detective Inspector Kieran Shaw's not interested in the infantry. He likes the proper criminals, the ones who can plan things. As head of Operation Perseus, a covert police operation into a highly organised and dangerous criminal network, Shaw's about to make the arrests of his career.
So when a low-level gang member threatens to derail his painstaking undercover work, Shaw's priority is to protect his operation. Nothing can be allowed to derail Perseus and let the master criminals go free.
But then a brutal murder sends a shockwave through the very organisation he has been investigating, threatening not only Shaw's case, but the lives of everyone with a connection to Gallowstree Lane...
