About the book

'SUPER-SMART AND HIGHLY ORIGINAL' - Doug Johnstone
'BRILLIANT AND DEEPLY EVOCATIVE' - Graham Bartlett
'AN EXCITING START TO A NEW SERIES' - Patricia Gibney
'A WRITER AT THE TOP OF HIS GAME' - Robert Rutherford

The first in a Newcastle-set police procedural series with a twist. DCI Jack Parker has a secret. He has Early Onset Dementia and he will do anything and everything to keep it hidden from his peers and the criminals he's investigating.


THE CLOCK IS TICKING. THERE'S NO ESCAPE.

DCI Jack Parker has faced down hardened villains and raving, drug-addled lunatics. He's disarmed a machete-wielding psychopath and broken devastating news of a loved one's death more times than he can remember.

With a serial killer stalking the Newcastle streets and one of his closest colleagues lying in the mortuary following a hit and run he thinks things are about as tough as they've ever been. But he should know that trouble always comes in threes.

Jack is about to face the biggest challenge of his life, one that will end his career and destroy his family: Early Onset Dementia.

As he does everything he can to hide his deteriorating condition from his family and colleagues, Jack believes that the serial killer is haunted by his childhood while his own memories are built on increasingly shifting sands.

The race against time to save lives, including his own, has begun.

Whilst staying within the realms of the police procedural genre, this cracking thriller will explore character in depth and with sensitivity, as well as with the author's trademark dark humour.
