The Girls Beneath (A Tom Mondrian Story)
‘Quirky, offbeat, stylish and original. I loved it.’ Mick Herron
Longlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger
Tom Mondrian is the last person you want on your case. And the only one who can solve it, in this quirky psychological thriller.
Tom Mondrian is watching his life ebb away directing traffic as a PCSO, until a bullet to the brain changes everything. With a new unusual perspective, including an inability to recognise faces and absolutely no filter between what he thinks and what he says, Tom’s career is suddenly shifting gear.
Tom’s new condition gives him an advantage over other police officers, allowing him to notice details that they can’t see. Now, with his new insight and unwavering determination, Tom is intent on saving three missing girls, before more start to disappear…
