Come one, come all to see the one and only William Hussey launch his devastatingly brilliant new novel! Behold Killing Jericho - a gothic, helter-skelter thriller that introduces crime fiction's first-ever Traveller detective, Scott Jericho!

"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 The Twyford Code

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?

Set to be the first in a series which will follow the lives, loves and scandals of the Lassiter and Treadwell families, William Hussey is the award-winning author of over a dozen novels, including the Crime Fest award-nominated Hideous Beauty and The Outrage.

Born the son of a travelling showman, he has spent a lifetime absorbing the history, folklore and culture of fairground people, knowledge he has now put to work in his Scott Jericho thrillers.
