The Murder Bag
Meet Detective Max Wolfe. Insomniac. Dog lover. Coffee addict. Boxer. Orphan. Devoted husband of a brutally departed wife. Single parent. Defender of the weak, avenger of slaughtered parents and every murderer’s worst nightmare.
There’s a serial killer on the loose. He cuts throats. And he is good at it.
Twenty years ago seven rich, privileged students became friends at their exclusive private school, Potter’s Field, founded five hundred years ago by King Henry VIII. Suddenly they have started dying in the most violent way imaginable…
Detective Max Wolfe follows the bloody trail from the backstreets and bright lights of the city all the way to the corner rooms in the corridors of power. At enormous personal cost, what Wolfe uncovers is a horrific secret that has been buried for two decades - and is now ready to explode.
