The enigmatic and darkly compelling Harry O’Connor, better known as Badger, is back in a fourth gripping crime thriller from Amanda Coetzee. This time the Major Crimes detective must pit his skills and wits and his dedicated team against a deadly sniper whose dark past in Afghanistan and South Africa has come back to haunt the streets of Bedford as they explode in an unprecedented drug war.
The ex-sniper from the British Armed Forces is a suspect in a series of killings and, despite the unusual affinity that Badger feels for the man, he must put aside his own devastating personal loss to track him down – from the rooftops of Bedford to the diamond auctions of the North West province in South Africa – to prevent the body count from climbing any higher.

D.I. Harry O’Connor is an original, compelling character. Dark, sexy and disturbing, this was a spellbinding read.’ –
