Book Two - The Web They Wove

Not all killers are who they first seem..
The mutilated body of a young female is found in a popular recreation ground in Leeds city centre. DI Ziggy Thornes and his team are at once assigned to close the case. With little to no forensic evidence left at the scene, at first Ziggy struggles to put the pieces together. When a second body turns up in the same place, pressure from higher up and the media mounts as fear spreads through the city. Realising that the victims have been held captive prior to their gruesome deaths, Ziggy delves deeper and relentlessly chases down every lead, taking him to breaking point. When the investigation leads him dangerously close to home, will time run out before the tangled web of evil he’s uncovered destroys everything that Ziggy holds dear?

An Andrew 'Ziggy' Thornes Prequel


Andrew Thornes had an idyllic childhood. What it lacked in material wealth, it more than made up for in terms of love and adventure. His hardworking parents fought hard and worked relentlessly to put food on the table for Andrew and his siblings, and once a year they would all head to the seaside for a few days of R & R. No one questioned where the extra money for the annual treat came from, or how Andrew always seemed to have the latest Liverpool FC home shirt – it just materialised, and everyone knew better than to ask.

Until the day it all came to an abrupt and savage end. In a matter of seconds, Andrew’s life is torn apart. He and his siblings are separated, and Andrew is thrust into an unfamiliar world of the care system.

At one foster home, he meets Leila Turner, a cheeky, mischievous teen who rebels against everything and everyone – except Andrew. She takes him under her wing and teaches him that sometimes in life you must feel the fear and do it anyway.

But when Andrew is faced with a ‘sliding doors’ moment will he heed the advice of his friend, or be brave enough to strike out on his own?
