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

'Sarah Hilary writes beautifully and unflinchingly' Peter James

Noah Jake has seen dead bodies before but when a young woman falls to her death from a London tower block, landing in the bonnet of his car, everything changes for him. Has he witnessed an accident, suicide, or something worse? Whichever, it affects him deeply.

London's young people are being trafficked into gangs, exploited, and killed. Thirteen-year-old Raffa Jordan was shot in the street, an innocent bystander in a gang war, or so it seems. It looks as if Samantha Haile is just the latest victim in the wave of violence sweeping the city. Only Noah feels the need to treat her differently, to chase down the truth of what happened that day.

Marnie Rome wants to help, but even she cannot grasp why Noah is risking so much for the sake of this stranger he never knew. As Marnie finally finds peace with her own past, she is faced with the far harder task of bringing Noah back from the brink of self-destruction.

Review quote

A satisfyingly complex mystery * Mail on Sunday * Compulsive and page-turning -- Melanie McGrath Magnificent -- Alex Marwood Heartbreaking, tense, intelligent storytelling from a writer at the top of her game. You won't get better writing than this * Live and Deadly blog * Tough, tender, absolutely terrifying -- Erin Kelly 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 * The Marnie Rome stories are clever and sharp, but they also have the most incredibly emotional depth and clarity. I adored it -- Joanna Cannon Addictive, chilling and beautifully written. The timely story pulls you in deep -- Will Dean Never Be Broken gloriously demonstrates that modern crime fiction really isn't all about the murders -- Val McDermid Deeply contemporary, painfully real, heartbreakingly good -- Mick Herron [A] searing perceptive novel * Observer *
