"Such a good read"
5 stars"

The writing style allows you to really get inside the head of the protagonist and gives the lay person a feel for what it is like doing the gut-wrenching job of a Police detective. Would recommend to any crime-fiction fans out there!

"Absolutely fantastic."

Purchased on Mighty Ape

A refreshing spin on crime novels, dark and keeps you on your toes. Well done Nathan, I can't wait for the second.

"I look at Police Officers differently now!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This book was absolutely awesome and such a great read. The book is set very locally to where I live so I loved knowing the exact road they were driving on, and picturing all the different crimes happening in places around the corner from me. It's very eye opening to what it's really like as a Detective in the NZ Police force and I have a new found respect for the Police and what they do- this book tugged at the heart strings, and it was so interesting I couldn't put it down! I would 100% recommend!!!


For Detective Matt Buchanan, the world is a pretty sick place. He has probably been in the job too long, for one thing. And then there's 14-year-old Samantha Coates, and the other unsolved murder cases. Those innocent girls he just can't get out of his head. When Buchanan pursues some fresh leads, it soon becomes clear he's on the trail of something big. As he pieces the horrific crimes together, Buchanan finds the very foundations of everything he once believed in start to crumble. He's forced across that grey line that separates right and wrong - into places so dark, even he might not make it back ...This is an astonishing first novel by ex-detective Nathan Blackwell that is guaranteed to grip you. It will reverberate in your head long after you've finished reading it.

Author Biography

Nathan Blackwell was raised on Auckland's North Shore and attended Westlake Boys High School before commencing a ten-year career in the New Zealand Police. Seven of those years were spent as a Detective in the Criminal Investigation Branch, where he was exposed to human nature at its strongest and bravest, but also at its most depraved and horrific. He investigated a wide range of cases including drug manufacture, child abuse, corruption, serious violence, rape and murder. Because some of his work was conducted covertly, Nathan chooses to hide his true identity.
