The Black & White Publishing novel we’re showcasing this month is Her Cold Eyes by Tony Black.

Her Cold Eyes is a harrowing journey down the most twisting, turning rabbit hole, where the screams from below might just be preferable to the ones above.

Her Cold Eyes Tony Black

Abbie is missing. Her mother knows who’s to blame.

But nobody is listening.

When the case falls to DCI Bob Valentine, he has no choice but to listen. Haunted by the girl’s cold gaze and her mother’s hurt, Valentine finds himself at the centre of the most harrowing investigation of his police career.

As he uncovers a ring of ritualistic abuse that circles up to the highest echelons of a degraded, Satanic society, the detective wonders how the world can contain such evil.

And then the bodies start to mount up. And the demons defenders appear. Has Valentine any hope of finding the missing, never mind the guilty?
