Stone has returned to his roots with fifteen years' experience in the Met, whereas Oliver is local, a third generation copper with a lot to prove, and a secret that's holding her back.

Steve Mosby
Authors:
Steve Mosby

The dead girl was never identified, and for Martin and the other police officers involved, her murder symbolised everything that was wrong with the city: a haphazard sprawl of indifference. Four months on, Martin is separated from his job, his wife and his friends. But then a simple note forces him to re-enter an investigation he'd rather forget: 'I found her'.The search takes him in a downward spiral of violence and pain, and drags him towards the danger at the heart of the city: the eight brothers rumoured to control everything.

THE SENSATIONAL TOP 10 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLERTHE FIRST NOVEL IN THE TERESA BATTAGLIA THRILLER TRILOGY An idyllic village in the alps. A legacy of sin. An evil lurking in the woods.In a quiet village surrounded by the imposing Italian Alps, a series of violent assaults take place. Police inspector and profiler Teresa Battaglia is called in when the first body is found, a naked man whose face has been disfigured and eyes gouged out. Soon more victims are discovered - all horrifically mutilated - and when a new-born baby is kidnapped, Teresa's investigation becomes a race against the clock. But Teresa is also fighting a battle against her own body, weighed down by age and diabetes, and her mind, once invincible and now slowly gnawing away at her memory... THE BIGGEST ITALIAN DEBUT OF 2018 WITH OVER 50,000 COPIES SOLD'With Teresa Battaglia, Ilaria Tuti hasn't just created a mere character, but an authentic, three-dimensional person who overbearingly pushes the boundaries of the printed page thanks to her immense energy. Teresa Battaglia is the best gift any author can offer his or her readers: someone they will come to care for' Donato Carrisi, author of The Girl in the Fog'The most awaited (female) noir debut of 2018 in Italy' Repubblica'The writing is tight and fast, and makes the most of the environment it depicts; the mountains, primitive nature and the woods' Wired Italia 'The writer, like the killer and detective, is perfectly at ease in the Alps environment, and knows how to render its profile, its iciness, its woods and swarming wild animals in a way that leaves the reader with a feeling of warmth' Corriere della Sera

'Why are humans afraid of spiders? With a multi-stranded narrative that traps you as effectively as a silken web, Skitter makes the answer all too clear' DAILY MAILIn the thrilling, nerve-wracking finale of Ezekiel Boone's terrifying Hatching series, the United States goes to war against the queen spiders that threaten to overtake the human race forever.The world is on the brink of apocalypse. Zero Day has come.The only thing more terrifying than millions of spiders is the realization that those spiders work as one. But among the government, there is dissent: do we try to kill all of the spiders, or do we gamble on Professor Guyer's theory that we need to kill only the queens?For President Stephanie Pilgrim, it's an easy answer. She's gone as far as she can-more than two dozen American cities hit with tactical nukes, the country torn asunder - and the only answer is to believe in Professor Guyer. Unfortunately, Ben Broussard and the military men who follow him don't agree, and Pilgrim, Guyer, and the loyal members of the government have to flee, leaving the question: what can be more dangerous, the spiders or ourselves?'Following directly on the heels of SKITTER (2017), Boone brings his excellent spider-apocalypse thriller to an exciting conclusion . . . The entire series is one to hand to fans of all high-action thrillers, especially for those with a speculative frame by Mira Grant, Jonathan Maberry, and Ben H. Winters. In a landscape where the adventure thriller seems to be dragging, it is clear all we needed were some spiders to revive it' (Booklist (starred review))'Big-screen-ready, rip-roaring action' (Publishers Weekly)
