"Robertson is a talented, frightening, and brilliant writer..."


The first commuter train of the morning slowly rumbles away from platform seven of Queen Street station. Everyone on board is sleepy, avoiding eye contact, reluctant to admit the day has begun. And then, as the train emerges from a tunnel, the screaming starts. Hanging from the bridge ahead of them is a body. Placed neatly on the ground below him are the victim's clothes. Why?

Detective Inspector Narey is assigned the investigation and then just as quickly taken off it again. Tony Winter, now a journalist, must pursue the case for her. The line of questioning centres around the victim's clothes - why leave them in full view? And what did the killer take with them, and where might it appear again?

Murderabilia - the practice of collecting items from crime scenes. Items only available on the dark web. The collector must be prepared to pay a high price - as Narey is about to find out.

I have been a fan of Craig Robertson's novels since his debut, 'Random'. 'Murderabilia' is the latest in the Winter and Narey series and is the best one yet. This is a frightening and original psychological thriller that will stay with you long after the final page. Knowing Robertson's work, he will have researched his storyline incredibly well which adds to the chill of this plot. People collecting memorabilia of murderers and their victims from the dark web - this is real. This exists and it is frightening. There is a nod to Hitchcock as Rachel Narey is bedridden and uses the Internet to investigate the crime of a missing boy from forty years precious. This is 'Rear Window' for the twenty-first century and it is written with passion, confidence and relish. The writing is stellar, the characterisation spot on and the story is ingenious. As much as I love this book I am incredibly jealous that I didn't think of it first. Be warned, once you start reading, it may be difficult for you to stop, so don't have a hot meal ready like I did. Robertson is a talented, frightening, and brilliant writer - a dangerous and delightful combination.
