***The bestselling William Shaw returns with a thrilling investigation in the unmissable new series***'One of the great rising talents of UK crime fiction' PETER JAMES'If you're not a fan yet, why not?' VAL MCDERMID'A superb storyteller' PETER MAYYOU CAN RUNThe two boys never fitted in.

Seventeen, the worst age, nothing to do but smoke weed; at least they have each other.

The day they speed off on a moped with a stolen mobile, they're ready to celebrate their luck at last.

Until their victim comes looking for what's his - and ready to kill for it.

YOU CAN HIDEOn the other side of Kent's wealth divide, DS Alexandra Cupidi faces the strangest murder investigation of her career.

A severed limb, hidden inside a modern sculpture in Margate's Turner Contemporary.

No one takes it seriously - not even the artwork's owners, celebrity dealers who act like they're above the law. YOU CAN DIEBut as Cupidi's case becomes ever more sinister, as she wrangles with police politics and personal dilemmas, she can't help worrying about those runaway boys.

Seventeen, the same age as her own headstrong daughter.

Alone, on the marshes, they're pawns in someone else's game.

Two worlds are about to collide. Kent and its social divisions are brilliantly captured in Deadland, a crime thriller that's as ingeniously unguessable as it is moving and powerful.
