A new Essex-based crime series from the bestselling author of the DI Jack Frost Prequels.

January 1983, Blackwater Estuary: a new year brings a new danger to the Essex shoreline. An illicit shipment, bound for Colchester – 100 kilograms of powder that will accelerate tensions in the historic town, and leave its own murderous trace.

James Henry is the pen name for James Gurbutt, who has written three prequels to R D Wingfield’s popular Frost series.
