A mutilated body discovered in the woods.
A murderous plan conceived in the past.
A reckoning seventy years in the making . . .
Charlie Priest, ex-detective inspector turned London lawyer, is hired by influential entrepreneur Kenneth Ellinder to investigate the murder of his son. But Priest is no ordinary lawyer. Brilliant, yet flawed, this case will push him, and those closest to him, to the edge.
Priest traces the evidence back to the desperate last days of the Second World War. Buried in the ashes of the Holocaust is a secret so deadly its poison threatens to destroy the very heart of the establishment.
As Priest races to uncover the truth, can he prevent history from repeating itself?
The Ash Doll
Some things are meant to be forgotten . . .
Prolific lawyer Charlie Priest has bet his career on one case, but when his star witness turns up dead on the morning of the trial, things start to fall apart fast.
It would be bad enough, but Priest suffers from depersonalisation disorder, a condition so destructive that it leaves him questioning the truth of his own existence.
Priest knows there’s a brutal killer out there, waiting in the dark, but as the bodies begin to pile up, he soon realises that he's caught in a web of deceit and corruption that protects a deadly secret: one that threatens to tear him and those he loves apart.
What happened a long time had been forgotten. Now, someone has remembered.
