Loose Tongues – Chris Simms

Loose Tongues

Chris Simms

What’s wrong, killer got your tongue? 

It’s DC Sean Blake’s first week on the job, but already he faces a series of brutal and bizarre killings: women are being strangled in their homes, each with a mobile phone forced down their throat. There are never any signs of a struggle or forced entry. The Greater Manchester Police have no leads. 

Blake can’t afford to waste any time – even as he picks apart the disturbing motive behind the murders, the case takes a turn for the personal. Can he stop the killer before another woman is silenced forever?

Chris Simms' novels include the DI John Spicer and the DC Iona Khan series. His books have received nominations for Crime Writers' Association Daggers and the Theakston's Crime Novel of the Year award.
