Killing for Keeps

By Mari Hannah

Published Dec 2014

DCI Kate Daniels Book 5

They know he’s coming…

Two brothers from the same criminal family die within hours of each other, five miles apart: one on the edge of a Newcastle industrial estate, the other in a busy A & E department, unseen by the triage team. Both victims have suffered horrific injuries. But who wanted them dead? And will they kill again?

Investigating these brutal and bloody killings leads DCI Kate Daniels to break some rules, putting her career, as well as her life, on the line.

As the body count rises in the worst torture case Northumbria Police has ever seen, the focus of the enquiry switches from Newcastle to Glasgow, and then to Europe, ending in a confrontation with a dangerous offender who’s hell-bent on revenge.

Praise for Mari Hannah:

Brutal and engaging, Mari Hannah writes with a sharp eye and a dark heart.
Peter James

A satisfyingly meaty read.

Hannah is especially good at portraying the emotional interactions and office politics of a fraught police force.
The Times

Joining Val McDermid and Ann Cleeves is a new and distinct voice in crime fiction…page-turning.
