TWO CHILDHOOD FRIENDS...ONE BECAME A DETECTIVE...ONE BECAME A KILLER...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. 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. 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. 'Wreaks havoc with your assumptions. Hill has a hell of a career ahead of him' Alex Marwood, author of The Wicked Girls and The Darkest Secret 'Utterly gripping, packed with unforgettable characters - and SO well-written.
