DYING IS HELL . . . SOLVING YOUR OWN MURDER IS PURGATORY

When Detective Inspector Joe Lazarus storms a Lincolnshire farmhouse, he expects to bring down a notorious drug gang; instead, he discovers his own dead body and a spirit guide called Daisy-May.

She’s there to enlist him to the Dying Squad, a spectral police force made up of the recently deceased. Joe soon realises there are fates far worse than death. To escape being stuck in purgatory, he must solve his own murder. A task made all the more impossible when his memories start to fade.

Reluctantly partnering with Daisy-May, Joe faces dangers from both the living and the dead in the quest to find his killer – before they kill again.

RIVERS OF LONDON meets LINE OF DUTY, this is the witty, gritty supernatural crime debut from award-winning director Adam Simcox.

‘Whip-smart, fresh with a dash of dark humour, The Dying Squad is a wildly entertaining read. Highly recommended’ – ADAM HAMDY

‘Grim, wry and inventive, a twisting tale with both guts and heart. Never has Lincolnshire seemed more desolate, or more menacing’ DAVID WRAGG, The Black Hawks
