Overview

A nerve-shattering and brutally realistic thriller,  bursting with energy and grit from the opening page

Video footage of an apparent murder on a London train thrusts crusading journalist Lydia into a terrifying web of money, politics and power, in sophisticated, shockingly believable contemporary thriller A witness but no victim. A crime but no crime scene… 'Brutal, brilliant and razor sharp. Blood Red City is pure adrenaline rush from the first page to the last' Chris Whitaker 'A searing, white-hot journey through the dark underbelly of modern London. Bristling with tension, danger and seamed with the constant threat of violence … Blood Red City confirms Rod Reynolds status as one of the greatest crime talents of his generation' Tim Baker ________________ When crusading journalist Lydia Wright is sent a video of an apparent murder on a London train, she thinks she's found the story to revive her career. But she can't find a victim, much less the killers, and the only witness has disappeared. Wary she's fallen for fake news, she begins to doubt her instincts – until a sinister call suggests that she's not the only one interested in the crime. Michael Stringer deals in information – and doesn't care which side of the law he finds himself on. But the murder on the train has left him exposed, and now he'll stop at nothing to discover what Lydia knows. When their paths collide, Lydia finds the story leads through a nightmare world, where money, power and politics intersect … and information is the only thing more dangerous than a bullet. A nerve-shattering and brutally realistic thriller, Blood Red City bursts with energy and grit from the opening page, twisting and feinting to a superb, unexpected ending that will leave you breathless  ________________ 'An outstanding page-turner that ratchets up the tension as it builds via a labyrinthine plot towards a satisfying and well-crafted climax … relevant and at times alarming, Blood Red City slaloms its way through the world of social media, geopolitics and hi-tech innovation with compelling conviction' G.J. Minett 'You are in for a treat with this whip-smart contemporary thriller. Strikingly realistic with an exciting, serpentine plot, I couldn't put it down!' Hair Past a Freckle 'This book blew me away, with action on every page. This will definitely appeal to fans of the BBC's The Capture. Terrific stuff!' Hooked from Page One 'Wow! If you love a tense, tight thriller that must IMMEDIATELY be made into a film, look no further! … A stunner!' Phillipa's Quick Book Review 'A well-researched, complex and fully realised story with three-dimensional lead characters. The creeping tension and mistrust is palpable and there's an absolutely cracking end reveal' Shots Magazine
