Series: Joe Faraday
(From the publisher):
Newly appointed to the Major Crimes Team, DI Joe Faraday investigates the brutal murder of a local prison officer, Sean Coughlin - and begins to build a disturbing picture of the dead man's life. With few friends and many enemies, Coughlin appears to have been a murder waiting to happen. Was the killer a recently released prisoner with a homicidal grudge? Or do the real clues lie buried deep in Coughlin's past?
Set in the teeming chaos of Portsmouth, Deadlight forces Joe Faraday to step outside the investigative process and explore a wider violence. Not just the darkness cast by an evil man, but the ever-deepening shadows of a half-forgotten war.
