A detective desperate for revenge. A hitwoman with one last job. A killer with both on his list.

Detective Matt Jackson has reached the end. His beloved wife, Polly, is the latest victim of 'NEON' - a serial killer who displays his victims in snaking neon lights - and he can't go on without her.

Unable to take his life, Jackson hires a hitwoman to finish the job. But on the night of his own murder, he makes a breakthrough in the case, and at the last minute his hitwoman, Iris, is offered an irresistible alternative: help Jackson find and kill NEON in return for the detective's entire estate.

What follows is a game of cat and mouse between detective, hitwoman and serial killer. And when Jackson discovers it's not a coincidence that all their paths have crossed, he begins to question who the real target has been all along...

Reviews for Neon: A must-read thrilling cat-and-mouse serial killer thriller that readers love!

The uncommon combination of cop and hit woman works well and the dynamic between the two proves fascinating with Iris showing wonderfully amoral Lisbeth Salander and Villanelle touches alongside a meticulous investigative process full of twists and fast running action. A definite page turner with a particularly poignant ending, this manages to give a tired sub-genre some new life (and crimes...) * Crime Time * Vivid and stylish, it rushes along like a rollercoaster before plunging to an intense conclusion - to be read in a single sitting. * DAILY MAIL * A vivid page-turner, Neon is all but impossible to put down...GS Locke injects electrifying new life into the serial killer genre. * Gerard O'Donovan *
