The Killing Hour

The Killing Hour

‘Anyone who likes their crime fiction on the black and bloody side should move Paul Cleave straight to the top of their must-read list’ Mark Billingham

‘Pulse-pounding’ Publishers Weekly

‘Cleave uses words like lethal weapons’ New York Times Book Review

Cleave keeps us guessing until the last page of this fantastic psychological thriller.

Imagine waking up covered in blood – but it’s not your blood. There’s a nasty bump on your head, and you can’t remember a thing about last night. The morning paper reports that two young women were brutally murdered. You recognize their names. Pieces of the night before come back to you through the haze. And now you’re the suspect in their grisly deaths. Welcome to Charlie’s world.

In this heart-pounding thriller, only the dead know what happened last night. On the run, Charlie suspects a man named Cyris, but no one believes that Cyris exists. Not the police and not Charlie’s ex-wife Jo, though she wants to trust that the man she once loved is innocent. Soon, Charlie has Jo bound and gagged in the trunk of his car, fleeing across the countryside while the killing hour approaches yet again.

Praise for Paul Cleave
Cleave leads us on a tantalizing, mouth-watering spectre of horror, never knowing what will be revealed around the next corner, or turning of a page

Simon Kernick
Riveting and all too realistic. Cleave is a writer to watch
