Everyone is hooked on something. It's not that easy to kick the money habit. After the global meltdown forces London's bankers to go cold turkey, people look elsewhere for a quick quid- the old-fashioned East End. So when investigator Catherine Berlin gets an anonymous tip-off about a local loan shark, the case seems straightforward - until her informant is found floating in the Limehouse Basin. In another part of town, a notorious doctor is murdered in his surgery, and his entire stock of pharmaceutical heroin stolen. An unorthodox copper is assigned to the case, and Berlin finds herself a reluctant collaborator in a murder investigation. Now Berlin has seven days to find out who killed her informant, why the police are hounding her and, most urgently of all, where to find a new - and legal - supply of the drug she can't survive without. 'A stylishly written and assuredly paced debut that heralds a promising new series.' Financial Times
