An entirely captivating crime thriller, where occasional visitations from the fearsomely uncanny, adds an extra wallop of drama. The detective with a difference returns for a second outing in the ‘PC Donal Lynch Thriller’ series, set in the early 1990’s. Lynch suffers from sleep paralysis, a smugly unscrupulous journalist brother, and a father with links to the IRA. He longs to escape the cold case unit, when a gruesome murder and assistance from his brother occurs, he finds himself working with the murder squad. The short sharp prologue sets the style and energy of this story. James Nally has had a rather fascinating career himself, which undoubtedly adds a depth and sense of authenticity. With comic moments, twists and turns which loop the loop of intrigue, and grittier than gritty criminals, ‘Dance With The Dead’ is an entertaining and sometimes flinch-inducing read. ~ Liz Robinson

Aspiring actress Elizabeth Smart lands her centre stage role: her mutilated body is found dumped in North London's red light district. Clasped in her hand is a piece of human hair belonging to an unidentified body of a woman murdered two weeks ago. PC Donal lands himself a place on the murder squad just as his unconventional brother, journalist Finton, unearths the secret double life of Elizabeth. The bodies mount, each clinging to the strands of hair belonging to the previous victim. The police are convinced it's the act of a serial killer. But how does Donal convince them it's not? The only people he can trust are the victims he dances with in his dreams.

Reviews

'With strong characters, hilarious dialogue and a thrilling plot, this book is a page-turner from the start. Impeccable descriptions made the story come alive and, when I thought it had ended, Nally threw another curveball. Exhilarating stuff'
