shortlisted

For homeless veteran and ex-military investigator Shrap Nelson, the body found burned to a cinder is more than just another dead vagrant. This one is personal, because the victim, Doug, talked him out of committing suicide two years ago. It’s the start of a dangerous investigation.

Biba Pearce is a successful self-published author. She was born in Southern Africa, and as a child, grew up on the wild eastern coast, exploring sub-tropical forests and surfing in shark-infested waters. She now lives in leafy Surrey and when she isn’t writing, can be found walking through the countryside or kayaking on the river Thames.
