No Name Lane, Paperback

No Name Lane Paperback



The hunt for a serial killer unearths an unsolved cold case from over sixty years ago.

Young girls are being abducted and murdered in the North-East.

Out of favour Detective Constable Ian Bradshaw struggles to find any leads - and fears that the only thing this investigation will unravel is himself.

Journalist Tom Carney is suspended by his London tabloid and returns to his home village in County Durham.

Helen Norton is the reporter who replaced Tom on the local newspaper.

Together, they are drawn into a case that will change their lives forever.

When a body is found, it's not the latest victim but a decades-old corpse.

Secrets buried for years are waiting to be found, while in the present-day an unstoppable killer continues to evade justice...Praise for No Name Lane: "Howard Linskey is one of the best new writers around and this is the start of a must-read series."
