Blood Games, Paperback / softback Book

Blood Games Paperback / softback

Part of the Detective Nikki Parekh series

Paperback / softback


‘Loved it, loved it, loved it. This book has such a powerful storyline, you could really imagine it being real.’ NetGalley Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ THREE MURDERS.

ONE MISSING BOY. THE GAME IS JUST BEGINNING… When a body is found at the edge of Chellow Dene reservoir Detective Nikki Parekh and DC Sajid Malik are quick to arrive.  This is the third murder in the space of a few weeks.

Each murder has a completely different MO, but there is one common theme… all the victims are teenagers.

The dead boy reminds Nikki of her nephew, and she feels more helpless than ever.  But then another boy goes missing. And this time his parents have been sent a threatening package too.

The pattern is different again – is the killer just playing a game? Can Nikki find the strength to uncover the shocking truth before the killer strikes again? From the Queen of Northern Noir, comes another absolutely nail-biting crime thriller!
