Next to Die by Neil White
  

Lovereading view...

Set in Manchester, this is the first in a new crime series featuring the Parker brothers Joe, a defence lawyer, and Sam, a police officer. With compelling writing, great characters and almost non-stop action, it pits brother against brother in a heart pounding tale, especially as you never can be sure who is going to win. The brothers’ lives have been greatly scarred by the unsolved murder of their sister some 15 years earlier and each copes with this in very different ways. This is destined to become a terrific series well worth getting into from the start.

Synopsis

Next to Die by Neil White

Joe Parker is Manchester's most ingenious criminal defence lawyer. Sam Parker is Manchester's most tenacious homicide detective. Both bear the burden of the unsolved murder of their sister fifteen years earlier. And both have a stake in a new series of murders that has shaken their city to its core. Ronnie Bagley is awaiting trial for the murder of his girlfriend and baby. Two weeks before he's due in court he suddenly fires his defence team, claiming that there's only one lawyer he wants to defend him: Joe Parker. Despite his misgivings about taking on the case in such strange circumstances, Joe decides to represent Bagley. Little does he know that Bagley is smarter than anyone has given him credit for, and soon Joe will find himself pitched against his own brother, Sam, in a race to outwit the most terrifying serial killer the city has ever seen. It isn't long before Joe and Sam's shared past comes crashing into the present in a pulse-pounding race to find out who is NEXT TO DIE...

Reviews

Down and dirty authenticity reeks from every page - the smell of the cells, the artificiality of court appearances, the intensity of the investigation - all helping to make this hypnotic, troubling crime writing with a superb villain and a distinctive atmosphere. Daily Mail Pacey and packed with atmosphere thanks to author Neil White's day job as a practicing criminal lawyer. Irish Independent Compulsive but disturbing...it's the first in a new series and we can't wait for the next instalment. Bella Magazine
