'Comparable with the best of Michael Connelly's Bosch books and James Lee Burke's Robicheaux novels, and - naturally - Ian Rankin' AJ FINN

The new must-read novel from the bestselling and highly acclaimed author of FIREWATCHING

Sheffield's beautiful Botanical Gardens - an oasis of peace in a world filled with sorrow, confusion and pain. And then, one morning, a body is found in the Gardens. A young woman, dead from a stab wound, buried in a quiet corner. Police quickly determine that the body's been there for months. It would have gone undiscovered for years - but someone just sneaked into the Gardens and dug it up.

Who is the victim? Who killed her and hid her body? Who dug her up? And who left a macabre marker on the body?

In his quest to find her murderer, DS Adam Tyler will find himself drawn into the secretive world of nighthawkers: treasure-hunters who operate under cover of darkness, seeking the lost and valuable . . . and willing to kill to keep what they find.

Praise for RUSS THOMAS and FIREWATCHING

'I've got a new man in my life. His name is Adam Tyler. Yorkshireman. Enjoys cold drinks and colder cases. Hangs out in exceptional debut novels and exceptionaller sequels. Firewatching and Nighthawking are comparable with the best of Michael Connelly's Bosch books and James Lee Burke's Robicheaux novels, and - naturally - Ian Rankin; but there's an elegiac quality here that reminds me of Kate Atkinson's Jackson Brodie titles and the Dublin Murder Squad novels by Tana French' AJ FINN

'A pitch-perfect blend of the best of the old and the best of the new . . . I loved it ' LEE CHILD

' Devoured in three days . A cracking read with a terrific new detective lead. Red hot debut for 2020' SARAH HILARY

'A fantastic read with a plot that left me guessing and a cast of very real and well imagined characters.' JAMES DELARGY
