Ryan Kyd used to work in the Diplomatic Protection Group, but now he's a private investigator getting by with an office above a kebab shop. In this follow-up to Business Is Murder, he assigns his assistant Carly to investigate the disappearance of a young woman who has vanished into a cult. Soon enough, he finds himself sucked into the case, and learns that the cult's tentacles have spread much farther than he first imagined. A dark, gritty, and funny mystery narrated in gravelly, whiskey-soaked tones by author Roger Hurn himself - perfect for an escapist listen.
The Church of the Dark Light commands its followers to 'embrace the darkness' inside themselves. But after a beautiful young girl joins the cult, she mysteriously vanishes.
Her elder sister turns to private investigator Ryan Kyd to find out what happened to her. Ryan suspects the church is a scam and holds little hope of his client's sister returning. So he gives the job to his assistant - the feisty and street sharp Carly.
But before long he is drawn into the cult’s world of beautiful people, high rollers, bent cops, Russian fixers, stolen guns and a politician with a sinister secret. The action switches from the subterranean depths of the Church’s headquarters to a shoot-out in the City of London. And as he digs deeper, Ryan discovers the 'Hand of Darkness' can reach everywhere...
Hand of Darkness is a follow-up to the best-selling Business Is Murder, featuring the private investigator Ryan Kyd.
