Envy The Dead (Jacobson and Kerr Book 6)

ENVY THE DEAD: Iain McDowall’s classic contemporary crime thriller
– now in an exclusive new e-book edition from Sedge Publishing

INSPECTOR JACOBSON: CRIME FICTION FOR THE COGNOSCENTI

The 1980s. The Falklands War. The IRA. The Miners’ Strike. Cruise Missiles. Anti-Nuclear Protests. And in the thick of it all, beautiful Claire Oldham, the revolution’s poster girl – until the day she turns up brutally murdered. A young, troubled drifter, Martin Grove, is swiftly prosecuted and jailed for the crime.

Fast forward twenty years: Martin Grove walks free, cleared by advances in forensic science, seemingly the victim of a miscarriage of justice. 

Fast forward a few more years: Martin Grove is shot dead in his reclusive home, ‘executed’ at close range.

DCI Jacobson and his team are on the case. But which case? And do the answers lie in the dangerous past or in the terrifying present?

PRAISE FOR ENVY THE DEAD:-

"Iain McDowall has made the leap from very good to excellent with Envy The Dead. Those who remember the ruthless war against dissent that was waged in the Thatcher era will recognise a sharply accurate and unsentimental picture of the times in this fascinating police procedural. Those who don’t might find it eye-opening" Morning Star, UK

"McDowall’s evocation of England under Maggie Thatcher necessarily focuses on the elemental anarchy, forgoes any rose-tinted sentimentality and draws a complex web around its central character” The Truth About Books, UK

"Dark and extraordinary. This book is a real gem. Read it and savor every word" Crimespree Magazine, USA
