Slash Killer

January 14, 2020

First published as Back-Slash

Number 5, in the DI Mike Nash Series, Slash Killer, originally Back-Slash is out now, re-issued by joffebooks.com

Andrew Myers was wrongly convicted of killing his wife by slashing her throat. Finally freed, but not exonerated, he just wants a quiet life far from where the tragedy happened. He goes to work as a forester on an isolated estate in Yorkshire. But then a killer with the same trademark starts claiming new victims, and in the same area where Andrew has moved.

Andrew has a terrible chainsaw accident while cutting trees. He manages to staunch the bleeding while he drives himself to hospital. His erratic control of his car attracts a policewoman, Lisa Andrews, to stop and help him. But she soon finds out there is more to him than just a hermit-like forester living in the woods. Is he a callous murderer? Is he now taking a terrible revenge on those who wronged him? Or, does the truth lie elsewhere?

With resources decimated by a flu epidemic, Detective Mike Nash is forced to use unorthodox tactics to expose a web of corruption and deceit spanning the years.

Can Mike Nash stop a serial killer or has he got the murderer in his sights already?
