Shooter in the Shadows

An all-new, book-length Audible Original from the winner of the 2018 Audie for best original audio work.

Tom Honeyman made his name cracking a horrific double murder in his hometown of Prosper, New York. He got an international best seller out of it, made a small fortune, and left his newspaper reporting days behind. 

But was it all based on a lie? 

Now, more than a decade after his one and only success, Honeyman’s life is in tatters. His wife committed suicide, his daughter hasn’t spoken to him in years, and his books don’t sell. He’s sequestered himself in his wreck of a retreat on an island in Venice, desperate to find the inspiration that will revive his career. 

But Tom Honeyman is not alone. 

An unseen stranger tells Honeyman he got it wrong all those years ago. And he has just four days to uncover the real murderer. 

Tom Honeyman is no longer writing for his livelihood. He’s writing for his life.


Nic Costa returns

After eight years the prize-winning series about a young Roman detective returns. This time Costa and his colleagues are in Calabria trying to find a shadowy gang lord, Lo Spettro, who wants to turn state witness. But when Costa is forced to pose as a crook himself the hunt for ‘the spectre’ makes them realise they are strangers in a very strange land.


A mystery in the Faroe Islands

Tristan and Elsebeth Haraldsen retired to a remote fishing village where he will oversee the local whale-fishing hunt. But when two boys go missing during the slaughter they realise the place may not be as placid as it seems.

A standalone mystery set in the harsh wilds of the Faroes and a community that lives to its own rules, and deals with its own tragedies, regardless of the outside world.

As grim as the bleakest of Nordic noir. If you think the solution to the crime will produce a happy ending, just wait till the chilling final pages. Kirkus Reviews
