The author of the “diabolically clever”* A Matter of Blood returns with another gritty supernatural thriller featuring hard-boiled homicide detective Cass Jones…

A devastating terrorist attack has crippled London. To find a perpetrator who is more than human, Special Branch turns to Detective Inspector Cass Jones.

Cass is already investigating a series of student suicides, but saying no to Special Branch isn’t an option—even when he’s hit with a much more personal and deeply disturbing mystery: a message left for him by his murdered brother revealing that Cass’s nephew was stolen at birth.

Cass’s investigations and his search for the boy lead him down a dark labyrinth to the shadowy Mr. Bright and his otherworldly allies—and into the middle of an ancient and deadly feud, with no less than the fate of humanity hanging in the balance…

Praise for The Forgotten Gods trilogy:

“A pitch-black thriller with a fierce emotional payload—gritty, authentic and compelling.”—Michael Marshall, New York Times bestselling author of Killer Move

“Gritty and twisty…It grins as it lures you into reality’s unsettled corners.” —F. Paul Wilson

“Few writers blend mystery and the supernatural as well as Sarah Pinborough, but there are none who do it better. Quite, quite brilliant.” —John Connolly, #1 international bestselling author of The Wrath of Angels

“Pinborough’s fiction moves at a breakneck pace. Once you start, you can’t stop. More importantly, her stories have resonance. She understands how people tick. I always trust the ride, because I know I’ll wind up someplace good.” —Sarah Langan, author of The Keeper
