Dead or Alive
by Ken McCoy

Introducing Detective Inspector Sep Black in the first of a brand-new series of hard-hitting police procedurals, set in Leeds.

Two children have been abducted on their way home from school. After several weeks, they are still missing – and no one knows whether they are alive or dead. The police are certain that ruthless local gangster Vince Formosa is behind the kidnapping, but without proof their hands are tied.

Forced to resign following an accidental death in police custody, former Detective Inspector Sep Black knows he’s been set up. But how can he prove it – and stay alive in the process? Convinced that Formosa has a mole within the police, Black sets out to expose the traitor, clear his name and wreak revenge on the man who brought him down. In order to do so, he must go undercover and find the missing children. But even the best-laid plans can sometimes go awry . . .


“The well-constructed narrative unfolds in an entertaining manner. A solid choice for Peter Robinson and Reginald Hill fans”

Library Journal

“McCoy tells his tale with great dash—plus plenty of tension and violence—and he brightens it with doses of English-major wit”
