Description

Compulsive, gripping and dark, NEVER BE BROKEN is the stunning new novel in the Marnie Rome series, for fans of Peter James, Mark Billingham, and Val McDermid

'Deeply contemporary, painfully real, heartbreakingly good' Mick Herron

'DI Marnie Rome is a three-dimensional character of an emotional depth rarely encountered in the world of fictional cops' The Times

Children are dying on London's streets. Frankie Reece, stabbed through the heart, outside a corner shop. Others recruited from care homes, picked up and exploited; passed like gifts between gangs. They are London's lost.
Then Raphaela Belsham is killed. She's thirteen years old, her father is a man of influence, from a smart part of town. And she's white. Suddenly, the establishment is taking notice.
DS Noah Jake is determined to handle Raphaela's case and Frankie's too. But he's facing his own turmoil, and it's becoming an obsession. DI Marnie Rome is worried, and she needs Noah on side. Because more children are disappearing, more are being killed by the day and the swelling tide of violence needs to be stemmed before it's too late.

NEVER BE BROKEN is a stunning, intelligent and gripping novel which explores how the act of witness alters us, and reveals what lies beneath the veneer of a glittering city.

[A] searing perceptive novel * Observer * Deeply contemporary, painfully real, heartbreakingly good -- Mick Herron Never Be Broken gloriously demonstrates that modern crime fiction really isn't all about the murders -- Val McDermid Addictive, chilling and beautifully written. The timely story pulls you in deep -- Will Dean The Marnie Rome stories are clever and sharp, but they also have the most incredibly emotional depth and clarity. I adored it -- Joanna Cannon Sarah Hilary is going to be up there with the likes of Ruth Rendell, PD James and Val McDermid, as a game changer of British crime fiction * Crime Review * Tough, tender, absolutely terrifying -- Erin Kelly Heartbreaking, tense, intelligent storytelling from a writer at the top of her game.
