ABOUT THIS BOOK
Never forget. Never forgive.
As a detective in the Metropolitan police, Zac is no stranger to murder cases, but this one is different. This is his daughter’s murder.
Years after Amelia died, Zac is still trying to trace the police officer involved in his daughter’s death.
And whilst Zac is prepared to break every rule to find the man responsible, his young and ambitious deputy, Kat, is working on a high-profile case of her own. But she knows Zac is keeping secrets from his team so she’s following his every move.
When one of Zac’s informants is killed, he knows he’s close to catching his man, but before he can act, he receives a call about his son which blows his world apart… And this time, he knows he’ll stop at nothing to save his family.
The third book in this series, LIFE OR DEATH by Chris Merritt is an energetic and dangerous game of cat and mouse and I really enjoyed it.
Zac will never give up his search for his daughter's killer and when he gets a sniff of the perpetrator he launches himself into a solitary search for justice and revenge. But Zac has no idea that the net of danger is closing in around him and is much closer to home than he could ever imagine.
Gripping, well-paced, and with characters that will tug on your heartstrings, LIFE OR DEATH by Chris Merritt is a cleverly written crime fiction novel with an edge. You cannot help but feel for Zac and his family and as heartbreak and drama unfold, your heart speeds up as they try to catch the killer in time. This book can be read as a standalone but for a deeper connection to the characters and backstory, I would recommend for readers to read the series in order.
LIFE OR DEATH by Chris Merritt asks the age-old question how far would you go to save your family? So sit back, relax and discover Zac's story.
As a psychologist who has worked in the NHS with both victims and perpetrators of crime, I write stories that explore why people commit serious offences and how their victims are affected. I try to bring these perspectives together with lots of rich, authentic detail about London and its many communities to let readers discover the city I love.
I always wrote - whether blogs, psychology articles or travel pieces - but it wasn't until 2014 that I began writing fiction. I'd spent several years working as a diplomat in Iraq and Jerusalem before I decided to go back to university and retrain as a psychologist. I completed a doctorate in psychology at King's College London in 2016. Now, when I'm not writing, I work on the Wellcome Trust's African Mental Health Research Initiative (AMARI) at King's College in south London, where I live.
