About the Author

Bio

Author Picture

Murray Davies

Murray Davies was born in South Wales in 1947. After an MA in First World War poetry, he drifted into journalism and spent more than twenty years on Fleet Street as a hard news reporter and a feature writer on three national newspapers. Murray covered a wide spectrum of major stories and he has filed from more than 30 countries in a prolific career: the civil war in Angola, famine in Ethiopia, mercenaries in Zaire, an orphanage in Bangladesh, the conflict in Bosnia... He claims to be the only Western journalist to have visited a condemned man on Russia's Death Row. Domestically, he reported on most major disasters, including the Herald of Free Enterprise, Lockerbie and Hillsborough. He has also reported major crime and court cases. Murray gave up a staff job four years ago to write full time. He lives in Greenwich but has a place in Wiltshire where he retreats as often as he can to write fiction.


Synopsis of this title

Imagine the one you loved most has been killed by a fanatic’s bomb explosion.

Imagine that the politicians’ promises of justice turn to ashes, that the police investigation stalls.

That the bombers still walk free – and they will strike again.

Then hopes for justice turn to dark visions of revenge – especially as the names of these terrorists are known to all – known even to the dogs in the streets.

The relatives of the slain prepare to take the law into their own hands. For they carry their own guilt. Maddy because, unwittingly, she sent her two small children and her husband out to meet their deaths. Rob because he had brought the crippled boy who had saved his life home to Britain, only for him to be killed. Maddy and Rob – and the others – owe debt to the dead. Now they will be avenged.
