Simms plunges DI Jon Spicer in to his most personal case. When his brother is brutally murdered Spicer finds his investigations lead him to a tight knit Peak District community who seem to have plenty to hide. Simms is definitely a talent to watch, a rising star...

If you like Chris Simms you might also like to read books by Simon Kernick, Mark Billingham and Simon Lewis.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. DI Jon Spicer is in for an unpleasant shock when he receives a phone call telling him that the body of his younger brother – more rebellious and wilder than Jon – has been found on the moor, grotesquely mutilated. Has his life of drugs led to this sorry end? Guilt as much as anger becomes an engine to drive Spicer in discovering the truth behind his brother’s death. The Edge is more chilling fare from the always-reliable Chris Simms.

Synopsis

The Edge by Chris Simms

It's the phone call DI Jon Spicer has long feared - his wild younger brother has been found dead. He has been murdered and horribly mutilated. Aware Dave was involved in drugs, Jon had hoped to steer him away from his doomed and self-destructive fate. Full of anger, he heads to the town where Dave's body was discovered, bent on finding the killer. Meanwhile, Dave's young girlfriend, Zoe, is trapped in an inner-city hell. Vulnerable, destitute and now alone, she is being hunted by the vicious criminal Dave owed money to.

Arriving in the Peak District, Jon finds a community with plenty to hide. With time running out and his distraught family cracking under the strain, Jon realises the truth of his brother's death lies in two places: with a frightened girl trapped somewhere among Manchester's tower-blocks and out on the bleak heights overlooking the secretive rural town.
