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
