A Killing Moon (DI Damen Brook 5)

Listen to a sample

What to expect

A young student is kidnapped on her way home from the pub, but her nightmare is just beginning…

DI Damen Brook is assigned the case but starts to realise that this might not be an isolated incident. With very little to go on, Brook trawls through the murky world of cheap labour and prostitution but comes up against a brick wall.

But then the bodies start turning up and the case is blown wide open.

Who is kidnapping these girls and why? Brook has to put the pieces together before the next victim is taken…

Critics Review

  • ‘A gripping serial killer story with an exceptional depth of humanity, Deity delves into the darkest corners of human motivation. DI Damen Brook is one of the most memorable characters in recent British crime fiction. The city of Derby finally has a copper to match anything Edinburgh or Oxford can produce! Dark and twisted, but DI Brook has an intense emotional core’

    Stephen Booth
  • ‘I’ve read all of Steven Dunne’s Damon Brook novels and have enjoyed all three, but DEITY is the best (so far!) It’s very rare that I find a book that I just can’t stop reading , but DEITY was devoured in two sessions, with only the need to sleep getting in the way! I’m really coming to care about DI Brook, his dark past and broken present, troubled relationships and a life teetering on the edge of total collapse. I don’t know if it’s Steven Dunne’s eye for local detail, or understanding of young people that really brings DEITY to life, but I can’t walk home over the Derwent without checking in the water for bodies, or wondering which of the Drinkers by the Assembly rooms is working undercover! I’m sure, in time Derby will be as linked to DI Brook as Oxford is to Morse, or Edinburgh to Rebus’

    Sean Heavens, Manager Waterstones, Derby
  • ‘Fast paced and thrilling, crime writing at its best’

    Sun
  • ‘DI Brook has evolved into one of the best and most memorable fictional detectives in what is undoubtedly a crowded market. A truly pulsating story which will leave readers breathless’
