About this product
- DescriptionCalling to mind the best of Harlan Coben, Johnstone shows us how quickly an ordinary life can take one dark turn and thing is ever the same again. (Megan Abbott, author of The Fever). From the author of the bestselling thriller Gone Again...Meet Martha. It's the first day of her new job as intern at Edinburgh's The Standard. But all's t well at the ailing newspaper, and Martha is carrying some serious baggage of her own. Put straight onto the obituary page, she takes a call from a former employee who seems to commit suicide while on the phone, something which echoes with her own troubled past. Setting in motion a frantic race around modern-day Edinburgh, The Dead Beat traces Martha's desperate search for answers to the dark mystery of her parents' past. Soundtracked by and interspersed with a series of gigs from the alternative music scene of her parents' generation in the early '90s, Doug Johnstone's latest page-turner is a wild ride of a thriller, and a perfect follow-on to his numbered 1 Kindle bestseller, Hit & Run.
