‘Jacob Ross is a unique and thrilling new voice in crime fiction’
MARK BILLINGHAM

Delving into issues of family, class and loyalty, Black Rain Falling is a stunning crime novel that asks how far one should go to protect those they love.

On the Caribbean island of Camaho, forensics expert Michael ‘Digger’ Digson is in deep trouble.

His fellow CID detective Miss Stanislaus kills a man in self-defence – their superiors believe it was murder, and Digger given just six weeks to prove his friend is innocent.

While the authorities bear down on them, Digger and Miss Stanislaus investigate a shocking roadside murder, the first tremors of a storm of crime and corruption that will break over Camaho at any moment.
