Publisher's Summary

Two childhood friends. One became a detective...one became a killer.

One night changed their lives
Thirty years ago the Longacre Children's Home stood on a London street where once-grand Victorian homes lay derelict. There its children lived in terror of Gordon Tallis, the home's manager.

Cries in the fire and smoke
Then Connor Laird arrived: a frighteningly intense boy who quickly became Tallis' favourite criminal helper. Soon after, destruction befell the Longacre, and the facts of that night have lain buried...until today.

A truth both must hide
Now a mysterious figure, the Two O'Clock Boy, is killing all who grew up there, one by one. DI Ray Drake will do whatever it take to stop the murders - but he will go even further to cover up the truth.

Discover the gripping, twist-filled start to a fantastic new London-set crime thriller series starring morally corrupt DI Ray Drake - the perfect new addiction for fans of Luther.

Needs more editing

This is an overlong, tedious retelling of a favorite storyline. Thrills turn to yawns as e v e r y detail of the conclusion spells The End, thank Goodness.

A thrilling debut novel

Two o'clock boy is a brilliant debut novel and a promising start to a great new series. The complex, cleverly plotted story, great characters and fast pace make it a very thrilling read. I'm looking forward to the next DI Ray Drake book!
The narration by Mark Meadows works really well for this audiobook.

surprised at how much I enjoyed it

Any additional comments?

I was not expecting much as I had not heard of writer or narrator before, but the narration was excellent and the story drew me in, a few twists along the way and sad when it was finished, -I will definitely be looking for more from both author and narrator
