WHO BETTER TO SOLVE A MURDER THAN A DEAD DETECTIVE?
When Detective Inspector Joe Lazarus storms a Lincolnshire farmhouse, he expects to bring down a notorious drug gang; instead, he discovers his own body and a spirit guide called Daisy-May.

She's there to enlist him to The Dying Squad, a spectral police force who solve crimes their flesh and blood counterparts cannot.

Lazarus reluctantly accepts and returns to the Lincolnshire Badlands, where he faces dangers from both the living and the dead in his quest to discover the identity of his killer - before they kill again.

Reviews for The Dying Squad

Untameably original, so stylish and packed with a biting humour * Rob Parker, author of A Wanted Man * THE DYING SQUAD is one of those books that fizzes with life. Every page has a new idea, or a funny line, and Daisy May is just a brilliant character to spend time with. Also, the ending arrives in a steel-tipped boot. Well played Adam * Stuart Turton, Sunday Times bestelling author and winner of the Costa First Novel Award for The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle * Excellent. Funny, creepy and oh no he did not just throw that twist in there compelling' * Anna Stephens, author of The Godblind trilogy * Excellent. Funny, creepy and oh no he did not just throw that twist in there compelling' * Anna Stephens, author of The Godblind trilogy * Grim, wry and inventive, a twisting tale with both guts and heart. Never has Lincolnshire seemed more desolate, or more menacing * David Wragg, The Black Hawks * Whip-smart, fresh with a dash of dark humour, The Dying Squad is a wildly entertaining read. Highly recommended * Adam Hamdy * A thrilling ride with dark humour, action and a touching side that's hard to forget * The Sun * THE DYING SQUAD is one of those books that fizzes with life. Every page has a new idea, or a funny line, and Daisy May is just a brilliant character to spend time with. Also, the ending arrives in a steel-tipped boot. Well played Adam * Stuart Turton, Sunday Times bestelling author and winner of the Costa First Novel Award for The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle * Adam has crafted something unique with The Dying Squad, mashing fantasy and crime together in a way I've not seen before ... I'm sure it will be a huge success. * James Oswald * A fascinating debut ... At times evocative of Richard Kadrey's Sandman Slim series, but without its hardboiled cynicism, this is an impressive and memorable debut. * Crime Time *
