Coming Nov 1, 2018 . . . Stone & Oliver #2

Nobody understands the many faces of cops better than Mari Hannah. Val McDermid

Truly absorbing. Peter Robinson 

Mari Hannah's already assured command of the crime fiction idiom has even managed to grow incrementally, as The Death Messenger proves. It's a reminder of how appropriate her recent CWA Dagger win was. Barry Foreshaw: 

A vivid new hero in this satisfyingly dark and tense thriller. The Independent 

This award winning crime thriller series has evolved into one of the best in the market. 

They're just great reads. Stephen Fry, Sprout Pictures 


If proof were neeed that Hannah's DCI Kate Daniels is a great addition to the crime scene, then here it is. Peterborough Telegraph

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

DCI Kate Daniels: a Northerner to join the roster of top literary detectives. The Times 

Solid plotting ... a satisfying and meaty read. The Guardian
