Publisher's summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of No Name Lane by Howard Linskey, read by David Leon.

The hunt for a serial killer unearths an unsolved cold case from over 60 years ago. Young girls are being abducted and murdered in the Northeast. Out of favour detective constable Ian Bradshaw struggles to find any leads - and fears that the only thing this investigation will unravel is himself.

Journalist Tom Carney is suspended by his London tabloid and returns to his home village in County Durham. Helen Norton is the reporter who replaced Tom on the local newspaper. Together they are drawn into a case that will change their lives forever.

When a body is found, it's not the latest victim but a decades-old corpse. Secrets buried for years are waiting to be found while in the present day, an unstoppable killer continues to evade justice....

Critic reviews

"Howard Linskey is one of the best new writers around and this is the start of a must-read series." (Mark Billingham)
"This is lacerating fare that makes most current crime fiction look like thin gruel." ( Financial Times)
"Linskey has elevated this story to a level of complexity and humanity seldom approached by British writers previously.... A new name on our criminal horizon." (Maxim Jakubowski)
"Gripping and convincing." (Kimberley Chambers)
"Brilliant.... This is first class stuff, an unstoppable tale, a real page-turner not to be missed." (Sarah Broadhurst)
"Serial killer thrillers don't come much better than this. Old secrets and terrible new crimes woven into an immensely satisfying, utterly compelling narrative which keeps you constantly guessing. Fans of Linskey's critically acclaimed David Blake series will already know what an outstanding author he is, everyone else...prepare to add another name to your must-read list." (Eva Dolan)
"Linskey weaves together a compelling and twisty tale that gripped me from page one. If you like Val McDermid's thrillers, you'll love this." (Mark Edwards)
"A new master of the gripping, gritty thriller. Howard Linskey takes you right to the heart of it." (Paul Finch)
"Howard Linskey is one of crime fiction's best-kept secrets. An exciting and intelligent writer with a sure eye for plot. Discover him before others do." (Stav Sherez)
