There’s no way back...

DI Sheldon Brown has never recovered from finding the body of Alice Kenyon brutally murdered, naked and abandoned in a pool. And he’s never stopped pursuing his main suspect, hellraiser and lottery winner Billy Privett either. So when Billy is found dead and, what’s more, viciously dissected, DI Brown’s obsession is rekindled. Who killed the notorious millionaire in such a bloodthirsty way? With jaded lawyer Charlie Barker – who desperately needs to pick up the pieces of his own life – Sheldon will uncover a world of drugs, long-buried secrets and a cult with a deadly conviction to their cause ...

User Review  - jtck121166 - LibraryThing

Very poor stuff. Unpleasant characters (both the lawyer and the cop), without being interesting; tedious procedural business; the incredible, rather silly commune, or sect, or whatever. Shame, really, as the murder we start with is excellently original. Downhill all the way from there, though. Read full review

About the author (2012)

Born above a shoe shop in the mid-1960s, Neil spent most of his childhood in Wakefield in West Yorkshire as his father pursued a career in the shoe trade. This took Neil to Bridlington in his teens, where he failed all his exams and discovered that doing nothing soon turns into long-term unemployment. Re-inventing himself, Neil returned to education in his 20s, qualified as a solicitor when he was 30, and now spends his days in the courtroom and his evenings writing crime fiction.
