Killing Jericho

William Hussey More by this author...£14.99

‘Darkly original, suspenseful, and haunting. From the gothic undertones to the fresh protagonist and ratcheting tension, Killing Jericho is a first- class thriller’ - CHRIS WHITAKER

The gothic, helter-skelter thriller debut introduces crime fiction's first-ever Traveller detective, Scott Jericho.

Scott Jericho thought he'd worked his last case. Fresh out of jail, the disgraced former detective is forced to seek refuge with the fairground family he once rejected. Then a series of bizarre murders comes to light - deaths that echo a century-old fairground legend. The police can't connect the victims.

But Jericho knows how the legend goes; that more murders are certain to follow. As Jericho unpicks the deadly mystery, a terrifying question haunts him. As a direct descendant of one of the victims in the legend, is Jericho next on the killer's list?

“I’d describe Killing Jericho as a dark mystery and a unique serial killer thriller whose sense of place and history can border on the supernatural, but is never anything less than down-to-earth... A rare insight into the traveller community. A detective who breaks every mould.., but also a tantalising glimpse of what promises to be a must-read series.” JANICE HALLETT

‘Crime fiction is crying out for more diversity, and in Scott Jericho, we have been gifted a blisteringly new brand of hero’ SARAH HILARY

‘Dark, exciting, furiously paced and full of twists, KILLING JERICHO sets the stage for a unique detective’ ALEX SMITH
