Description

PEAKY BLINDERS MEETS TRUE DETECTIVE IN A RAZOR-SHARP LITERARY CRIME NOVEL. 

SOHO, 1935.

SERGEANT LEON GEATS' PATCH.

Working with his former partner, mercenary Flying Squad sergeant Mark Cassar, Geats obsessively dedicates himself to finding a warped killer - a decision that will reverberate for a lifetime and transform both men in ways they could never expect.
