'The Less Dead is much more than a brilliant thriller dripping with malevolence and male violence. It is a clear-eyed examination of female friendship, the powerplay within relationships and the "dark side" of masculinity. This is crime writing of the highest order.' THE TIMES **Book of the Month**
When Margo goes in search of her birth mother for the first time, she meets her aunt, Nikki, instead. Margo learns that her mother, Susan, was a sex worker murdered soon after Margo's adoption. To this day, Susan's killer has never been found.

Nikki asks Margo for help. She has received threatening and haunting letters from the murderer, for decades. She is determined to find him, but she can't do it alone...

A brilliant, thought-provoking and heart-wrenching new thriller about identity and the value of a life, from the award-winning author of The Long Drop and Conviction.
