Graffiti is a dying art in this thriller from the bestselling DI Nick Dixon crime series…
A routine missing person enquiry takes a grisly turn when a young couple drag a box containing human remains out of a Somerset river. The victim was a surveillance expert investigating an exaggerated injury claim—a murder with an obvious motive, until a police officer is implicated and suspended.
Still brooding after his recent brush with police Professional Standards, Detective Chief Inspector Nick Dixon is on extended leave, helping his pregnant fiancée, Detective Sergeant Jane Winter, fight for her place on the major investigation team.
Convinced that the death of an art student is connected, Dixon returns to duty, and when graffiti depicting the murders starts to appear, the race is on to find the artist and the murderer. But, why the paintings? Could an infamous street artist be involved?
With colleagues questioning his every move, Dixon must stop a sadistic killer before another life is taken. Then a second art student is reported missing…
‘…another amazing read. There’s a certain passage that is so well written, engaging and filled with emotion – one of the best pieces of writing I’ve ever read. Top work!’
‘I absolutely love the writing style of Damien Boyd. Having read the entire series, he takes it up a notch in every new book. This one is no exception. His subject matter and plots are always unique, well researched, intriguing, and entertaining. His characters are authentic.’
‘One of the most engaging writers I’ve read, especially in terms of continuity in his series of DI Dixon books. The interpersonal relationships of Dixon’s chosen team are well constructed and easy to empathise with. The domestic front is played out enough to give us a much wider perspective of the man and his partner, Jane. The descriptive writing leads you into their world as well. It feels right.’
‘…the pace is set from the first paragraph, there’s no going back after that, with the pace set at fast throughout! A brilliant read as are all his books. I’m feeling a bit bereft now as I know I will probably have to wait a while for the next book, but a worthwhile wait. Do yourself a favour, if you have not read the series then you are missing out on one great author and series.’
