A string of brutal killings has left Manchester in fear. Each victim has been murdered in the same bizarre and grotesque manner, yet the lack of motive leaves the police utterly baffled. DI Jon Spicer gets the case – and is soon caught up in a nightmare where the most innocent action can cost the highest price.
Chris Simms has worked in airports, nightclubs, post offices and telesales centres. He now lives near Manchester with his wife, four children and lurcher dog.
Along with nominations for the Theakston’s Crime Novel of the Year award and Crime Writers’ Association Dagger awards (for his DI Spicer novels and short stories), Chris was selected by Waterstone’s as one of their ‘25 Authors For The Future’.
He continues to write in a ‘glorified garden shed’ with no internet access or phone line.
