    Viper’s dream

    For the better part of 20 years, Clyde ‘The Viper’ Morton has been in love with Yolanda ‘Yo-Yo’ DeVray, a singer of immense talent but a woman consumed by demons.

She is a bright star in a constellation of compelling characters including chauffeur-turned gangster Peewee Robinson, Jewish kingpin Abraham ‘Mr. O’ Orlinsky, heroin dealer West Indian Charlie, corrupt cop Red Carney, wife-beating singer Pretty Paul Baxter, pimp Buttercup Jones and brutal enforcer Randall Country Johnson.

    DCI Mackenzie and Atticus Priest are back, but can they work together to solve a conspiracy? A dog walker finds a human bone on lonely Salisbury Plain.

Atticus takes on the case and finds himself battling a London gang who are selling their drugs in Salisbury and a host of witnesses who don’t seem to be telling him the truth.

Guided by the dark gift taught to her by her grandmother, she has made her own plans. And it will take more than a family riven by murderous secrets to stop her.
