I am delighted to share an extract with you today on blog tour for Amalie by EJ Wood…..I hope you enjoy it
HEY MURDERED FAMILIES
THE FUHRER CANNOT PROTECT THEM NOW
It’s not wise to murder the family of a budding assassin. Created by Auschwitz, her skill is honed by revenge.
A very different type of serial killer is loose in 1950s Europe. In Britain, a Brotherhood of powerful men takes notice and enhances the expertise and artistry of a killer.
DCI John Owen was born to serve. Recruited by MI6, he tracks an accomplished executioner whose love of luxury and the arts is second only to the love of watching an early death come to those who truly deserve it.
Join the chase. Then ask yourself…
Can there ever be only one winner?
William remembered his first encounter with Billy Hill; he was charming, sure, and had a twinkle in his eyes, but he was as pale as a glass of milk. He was vigilant, with wide eyes and his hair was black and slicked back. His movements were slow as if he didn’t have any bones, and he’d rub his hands together in that classic villain way. He didn’t pretend to be anything other than what he was, he enjoyed making money and to him, robbing the rich was a game.
William had heard from DCI Owen that the home secretary had authorised the tapping of Hill’s phone in late 1956, but William wasn’t about to help the guy out. In fact, William didn’t say much around Hill at all. He knew Hill wasn’t someone to cross. He was especially sure after hearing Hill say, “I was always careful to draw my knife down on the face, never across or upwards. Always down. So if the knife slips you don’t cut an artery. After all, chivving is chivving, but cutting an artery is usually murder. Only mugs do murder”.
