As Harry nears the end of his 11th life, a little girl appears at his bedside. ‘I nearly missed you, Doctor August,’ she says ‘I need to send you a message.’ This is the story of what Harry does next, and what he did before, and how he tries to save a past he cannot change and a future he cannot allow.

by Mark Billingham
Soon to be a major BBC Drama, this is a tale about two schoolgirls abducted in the small, dying Warwickshire town of Polesford. Their disappearance drives a knife into the heart of the community where police officer Helen Weeks grew up. But this is a place where dangerous truths lie buried.
The Accused: When family man Stephen Bates is arrested, Helen and her partner Tom Thorne head to the flooded town to support Bates’s wife, an old school friend of Helen’s, who is living under siege and convinced of her husband’s innocence.
The Dead: As residents and media bay for Bates’s blood, a decomposing body is found. The police believe that they have their murderer but one man believes otherwise. With a girl still missing, Thorne sets himself on a collision course with the local police, townsfolk – and a merciless killer.
