´My favourite current crime series . . . a pleasure from start to finish´ Val McDermid Boiled human bones have been found in Norwich´s web of underground tunnels. When forensic archaeologist Dr Ruth Galloway discovers the bones aren´t as old as originally thought, it´s time for DCI Nelson to launch a murder inquiry. What was initially just a medieval curiosity has taken a much more sinister nature... Meanwhile, DS Judy Johnson is investigating the disappearance of a local rough sleeper. The only trace of her is the rumour that she´s gone ´underground´. This might be a figure of speech, but with the discovery of the bones and the stories both Ruth and the police have heard of a vast community of rough sleepers living in the old chalk-mining tunnels under Norwich, the clues point in only one direction. Local academic Martin Kellerman knows all about the tunnels and their history - but can his assertions of cannibalism and ritual killing possibly be true? As the weather gets hotter, tensions rise. A local woman goes missing and the police are under attack. Ruth and Nelson must unravel the dark secrets of The Underground and discover just what gruesome secrets lurk at its heart - before it claims another victim.

The long-awaited sequel to KILL YOUR FRIENDS - preorder now! It is 2017 ? the time of Trump, Brexit and fake news. And time for the return of Steven Stelfox, exactly twenty years on from his Britpop heyday. Now forty-seven and rich beyond the dreams of avarice, Stelfox works only occasionally as a music industry ?consultant?. A fixer. A problem solver. He?s had a call from his old friend James Trellick, now president of Unigram, one of the largest record companies in America. Trellick has a huge headache on his hands in the shape of... Lucius Du Pre. The biggest pop star on earth. Well, once the biggest pop star on earth. Now he?s a helpless junkie and a prolific, unrepentant sexual predator. Through a programme of debt restructuring so complex even Trellick can barely understand it, Du Pre is massively in hock to the record company. The only way he can possibly pay it off is to embark on a worldwide comeback tour he?s in no shape to do. The picture is further complicated when the parents of one of Du Pre?s ?special friends? begin blackmailing him. If their video gets out, Du Pre?s brand will be utterly toxic and will take Unigram down with it. Enter Stelfox stage right. Only he has the lack of morality to spin this one. With stealth and cunning he begins to chart a road out of the nightmare and to make a killing in the process. For this age of ?American carnage? ? of populism, of the lowest common denominator, of the Big Lie ? is truly Stelfox?s time to shine. But in this time of uncertainty, nothing is a given. ?A banging action satirical thriller. But it?s also a proper novel about the Trumpian era, of the reality TV era, the fake news era. It?s managed to say a lot of things in a way that very few other novels are doing and in a very comedic way.? Irvine Welsh ?John Niven understands our era better than almost anyone.? Douglas Coupland
