Some secrets are buried deep . . . Set in both Liverpool and Hollywood, Underland is another exciting, uncompromising thriller from the author of A Dark Place to Die.
At first glance, the horrifically bloody crime scene in suburban Liverpool looks like a straightforward murder-suicide. The husband kills the wife and then himself. Simple.
Or it would be if it wasn’t for the dead couple’s missing teenage son, Nicky.
With Nicky’s holiday job on a Hollywood movie being shot in the city bringing unwanted press attention, newly promoted DCI Frank Keane knows that time is running out to find the missing boy. The only question is: is Nicky victim or killer?
When it comes, the answer is worse than anyone expects.
The deaths in Liverpool are just the start of a twisted international killing spree by an ambitious psychopath with a point to prove.
As the odds, and the stakes, stack up, Keane has no option but to mount an unorthodox operation on unfamiliar and dangerous territory.
And suddenly a cop from Liverpool might just be the only one who can prevent a killing that would shock the world . . .
