The award-winning Nick Chester crime series is back with a vengeance!
Sergeant Nick Chester has dodged the Geordie gangsters he once feared. He’s out of hiding and looking forward to a quiet life. But gold fever is creating ill-feeling between prospectors, and a new threat lurks when a group of trigger-happy Americans prepare for Doomsday by building a bolthole at the top of New Zealand’s South Island.
With tensions simmering in the Wakamarina valley, Nick finds himself working a cold-case murder and investigating a scandal-plagued religious sect. As local and international events reach fever pitch, Chester finds himself up against an evil that knows no borders.
Read it as a standalone or grab Marlborough Man to binge the whole series.
