Gallowstree Lane

by Kate London

Crime / Mystery Thriller and Suspense

Gallowstree Lane Synopsis

Please don't let me die. Please don't. When a teenage boy steps out of the shadows of Gallowstree Lane and asks a passer-by for help, it's already too late. His life is bleeding out on the London street. The murder threatens to derail Operation Perseus, a cover police investigation into the Eardsley Bluds, an organised criminal network. Detective Kieran Shaw can't and won't allow that to happen. But fifteen-year-old Ryan has other ideas. He's witnessed the death of his best friend, and now he wants someone to pay... As loyalties collide, a chain of events is triggered that threatens everyone with a connection to Gallowstree Lane. 

Gallowstree Lane Press Reviews

Intelligent, atmospheric, captivating - this book draws you in and doesn't let you go. A must read. - Rosamund Lupton on Post Mortem

An absorbing debut... The author vividly re-creates the everyday experience of uniformed police... The result is a complex novel that offers rare insights into how the police operate. - Sunday Times on Post Mortem

A terrific thriller, it pulls off that near-impossible trick of being not just psychologically acute and beautifully written but rivetingly plotted too. Packed with convincing detail and a full cast of excellent characters it is edge of the seat stuff: Prime Suspect rebooted. - Christobel Kent, praise for Kate London

Sensational... A brilliant, high-octane crime novel, ringing with the hard-earned wisdom of a former cop. - Tony Parsons, praise for Kate London

Taut, tight and terrific, a London thriller for our times. - Philippe Sands
