‘Breathless from the first word and thrilling to the last’ LEE CHILD

The blistering new novel from award-winning crime writer Dreda Say Mitchell, and the first in a new series of thrillers set in the murky world of undercover police officers.

Two murders. Two different crime scenes. One killer?

Mac wakes in a smashed up hotel room with no recollection of what has happened. With his lover’s corpse in the bathroom and the evidence suggesting that he killed her, Mac is on a mission to uncover the truth and find the real killer.

But he’s in a race against time with less than a day to unravel the mystery. Still reeling from a personal tragedy Mac isn’t afraid of pain. Hot on his heels is tenacious Detective Inspector Rio Wray. Double-crossed and in the line of fire, Mac has to swim through a sea of lies to get to the truth.

But only Mac knows he’s been living a double life. Can he be sure he doesn’t have the blood of a dead woman on his hands?

Vendetta is the exhilarating new novel from award-winning crime novelist Dreda Say Mitchell, and marks a new direction in her writing as she tackles a race-against-time thriller. Yet the acclaimed trademarks of Dreda’s writing remain – pacey plotting, gritty urban settings and utterly engrossing characters.
