From the Editor

Ed James is one of the most exciting new voices in British crime writing, and The Hope That Kills is his best book yet.

At the heart of it is DI Fenchurch, a good guy left broken by the sudden disappearance of his daughter and the ensuing breakdown of his marriage. Fenchurch is no superhero; he is a smart and hard-working detective, someone with integrity and the tenacity to power through a crime that is all too personal and which gets bigger and more frightening as each day passes by.

Meticulously constructed, The Hope That Kills depicts the complexity and urgency of a murder investigation. By setting it in the underbelly of East London, James brings to life a city he loves and one which he’s spent hours getting lost in. He distils London’s very essence so that, no matter whether you know the city or not, you can’t fail to be immersed in its dark and gritty backstreets.

Add to this a great dose of tension, plenty of twists and turns, and the visceral qualities of James’s writing, and you have the makings of a truly brilliant read and one of the most satisfying crime stories I have encountered in quite some time.

- Emilie Marneur, Editor
