David Gemmell was the UK's number one fantasy and historical velist until his death in 2006. A regular Sunday Times bestseller, and international sensation, his legacy lives on through his vels, his influence on the genre, and through the David Gemmell Legend awards. Rhyming Rings is a never-before-seen Gemmell vel, discovered in his papers by his widow, Stella Gemmell. Merging autobiographical details of Gemmell's life as a journalist in South London with a serial killer and a tinge of the supernatural, this is perfect for fans of David's work, as well as readers of gritty crime vels. Set against the backdrop of a London simmering with poverty, change and racial tension, this taut thriller is a fitting legacy for the great writer. This book includes a brand new introduction from massive Gemmell fan Conn Iggulden, and an afterword by Gemmell's friend Stan Nicholls. An ambidextrous killer is murdering women, leaving virtually evidence behind, and struggling journalist Jeremy Miller wishes he was covering the case. Instead, he's stuck with heart-warming local stories about paraplegic teenagers and elderly psychic ladies. So when his stories and the murder case start to converge one is more surprised than Jeremy. Or, it turns out, more at risk.
