Two men fight to prove their innocence. One a cop, the other a convicted murderer. One of them is lying.

Fifteen years ago local crime boss Duncan Usher was sent to prison for killing his wife. A young Detective Solomon Gray was first at the scene and instrumental in putting Usher away. But now Usher is out, released on a technicality.

Usher has held a grudge all this time, and he won't stop until he gets revenge on the dirty cop who framed him all those years ago. Usher wants Gray's help, acting as an inside man within the police. Gray refuses, but Usher has leverage – information on Gray's missing son.

Gray agrees to work with Usher because he'll do anything to find his son. But Gray is taking a huge risk; playing both sides of the game and carrying out his own investigation into what really happened fifteen years ago.

Will Gray get to the truth? Or will the past bring Gray down?

Set in the once grand town of Margate in the south of England, the now broken and depressed seaside resort becomes its own character in this dark detective thriller, perfect for fans of Ian Rankin, Stuart MacBride, and Peter James.

Beg For Mercy is the third book in the series featuring Detective Sergeant Solomon Gray. Buy it now to discover whether Gray can track down the real killer and escape Usher's clutches in this tense crime series.
