happened, but she also knows no one will listen. DCI Valentine can’t get the girl out of his mind. Then he starts lucid dreaming, and in those dreams the dead girl wants something from him.
He turns to colleagues for help but is allowed to go only so far. There are veiled warnings from superiors, double lives being lived, enforced retirements for those who walked his path before, even unexplained deaths.
A family man, he discovers that nothing he loves is safe, and much he thought sacred has been defiled.
From a dead girl on an Ayrshire roadside, all the way to the European Parliament, it seems evil has already won. It permeates every level of society and those who would help Valentine solve any other crime will hunt him down over this one.
Should he toe the line for the sake of his job and those he loves – or keep investigating a crime that will change the way he sees the world and leave him nowhere to go if he succeeds?
In Her Cold Eyes Tony Black takes crime fiction in a terrifying new direction that will speak to anyone who has looked at how society works at the highest levels and thought, “That can’t be right”.
Tony Black is the author of 24 books and has been nominated for the Crime Writers Association Dagger eight times.
His fellow crime writers, long-term fans, and those new to his work will read Her Cold Eyes and think, “How does he top that?” David Mclaughlan
