'Two O'Clock Boy is a cracking debut and I can't wait to see more of Ray Drake.'

Mark Billingham

'Grips from the start and never lets up.'

Marcel Berlins, The Times

'At a stroke, Mark Hill has joined the upper echelons of London crime writers.' 

Barry Forshaw, Crime Time

'Surely the hardest debut of 2017 to beat. What a story and what a superb writer!'

Alex Gray, author of Keep The Midnight Out

'As poignant as it it gripping.'

Sunday Express

'Dark, twisted, addictive. Loads of satisfying twists and turns. I couldn't put it down.'

Robert Bryndza, author of The Girl In The Ice

'Enter DI Ray Drake, the flawed, sharply-drawn lead of this promising new series. The author has an unerring ability to give incidents a biting sense of reality.' 

Sunday Times Crime Club, Best Debuts of the Year
