'Dark, twisted, addictive. Loads of satisfying twists and turns. I couldn't put it down.'

Robert Bryndza, author of The Girl In The Ice

'At a stroke, Mark Hill has joined the upper echelons of London crime writers.' 

Barry Forshaw, Crime Time

'Surely the hardest debut of 2017 to beat!'

Alex Gray, author of Keep The Midnight Out

'Mark Hill has written a brilliant debut with characters that linger in the subconscious long after reading. I devoured The Two O'Clock Boy and can't wait to see what he does next. He's a real talent.'

Steve Cavanagh, author of The Plea

'A delight of a book that wreaks havoc with your assumptions in a delicious Highsmithian manner. Hill has a hell of a career ahead of him.'

Alex Marwood, author of The Darkest Secret

'Utterly gripping, packed with unforgettable characters – and SO well-written. The twists had me reeling! You'd never guess it was a first novel.' 

Louise Voss, author of the Venus Trap

'An assured, dark and gritty debut marking the start of what looks like a great series.'

Stav Sherez, author of A Dark Redemption 

'I loved The Two O'Clock Boy! It's gripping and scary and twisty and unpredictable.'

Valentina Giambanco, author of Blood And Bone 

'Mark Hill's debut is a slick and gritty page turner that expertly examines the lengths people will go to to hide a guilty secret. It's a compelling read, packed with unexpected twists and explosive secrets, that builds to a shocking and unforgettable climax. A fantastic debut.'

Rod Reynolds, author of The Dark Inside

‘An unsettling and powerful story. The plot cleverly weaves past and present - with shocking, edge-of-the-seat twists until its heart-stopping finale.'

David Young, author of Stasi Child

'Fiercely fresh and wonderfully written. DI Drake is a marvellous creation and I can't wait to read more.'

SJI Holliday, author of Willow Walk

'A cracking debut from a talent to watch.'

Fiona Cummins, author of Rattle

'Enter DI Ray Drake, the flawed, sharply-drawn lead of this promising new series. The author has an unerring ability to give incidents a biting sense of reality.'
