The Score

DS Catrin Price has been told to stay away. But sometimes you have to break the rules to find out the truth. The second book in the haunting new crime series from Howard Marks, the bestselling author of Mr Nice

DS Catrin Price is on administrative duty while recovering from a case that dragged her into a troubled past. But when she receives a series of cryptic messages from an old school friend asking for help, someone who never hesitated to come to her defence, she can sit behind a desk no longer. She rides her Laverda to Tregaron, an isolated town near the wilds of the Brecon Beacons. There she finds her old friend destroyed by fear for his missing daughter and living in terror of a shadowy figure he refuses to name.
Before Cat can begin to investigate the daughter’s disappearance, another teenage girl is found murdered in an abandoned mine shaft. The girl’s death appears not to be connected to the series of missing persons cases in the area, but Cat is convinced that more sinister forces are at work.
Cat embarks on a journey that takes her deep into the criminal underworld of London and into the darkest corners of the mind. She will stop at nothing to uncover the truth, but there are people who will stop at nothing to keep those truths hidden – and they are watching her every move.
