Our new recommended read comes from our editorial team’s Jade Chandler: ‘New York Times bestseller Chris Culver is back with an action-packed thriller starring Muslim-American detective Ash Rashid. Our hero, lovably flawed cop Ash, has tried to leave his days as a homicide detective behind him but one day, on his way home, he discovers a couple shot dead in the front seats of their Mercedes. Ash is first on the scene and soon realises that the delay in waiting for back-up has left him and the Indianapolis police department behind in a race to keep up with a killer who is getting further from their grasp with every passing moment. Before he knows it, Ash is sucked back into a dramatic and dangerous case and it’s not long before he risks losing everything he holds dear.
This is a fun US detective novel, full of interesting characters, thrills and spills. If you’re looking for an unusual crime protagonist, then this could be the book for you.’
