Publisher's Summary

An elderly woman is burnt to death in the remote hamlet of Silver Bay. A young woman dies of an overdose on a notorious Holyhead estate. A drugs war is about to explode. Somebody knows but no one is talking.

Kelly Morgan has a social conscience and a pile of regrets. She wants to help but knows she'll never manage it alone. Her boss, Amanda Gold, cannot allow anything - not her divorce nor her daughter nor her affair with the boss - to cloud her thinking.

Another fire, another death, and the flames lick closer to home. A threat shadows all their lives. A killer is out there, but one step ahead.

False Lights is the second novel in The Gold Detectives series based along the North Wales coast.

    "Thrilling!"


    I slipped back into the world of Dara, Amanda, and Kelly as if I'd known them forever. Hamer digs under the skin and creates a virtual reality, helped by the inclusion of some emotional baggage and the way it can interfere with work related business, and this is something carefully threaded through the story. Fear and empathy for DI Gold's personal life is never far behind the terrific tension created by a drugs ring, the local sink estate and several shocking murders. The coast of Anglesey lends itself well to such dark escapades. It's rugged beauty and historic relevance is the perfect backdrop to this complex plot. It's totally convincing, full of depth and a wide range of characters, and builds to a heart-stopping denouement. And wow... what an ending! I thoroughly enjoyed it and the audio version is once again superbly narrated by Tim Dalgleish

    "Scandinavian drama in North Wales?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Really enjoyed this second book in the Gold Detectives series, a gritty provincial thriller which is a combination of police procedural and small town mystery. An elderly novelist is brutally burnt to death in her seaside retreat, Why an apparently harmless recluse should suffer such a tortured end is hard for law enforcement to fathom. False Lights gives really good characterisation of the police force, in their professional and private conflicts, and edge of the seat chapter endings which leave you listening deep into the night!. Gillian Hamer's style in gritty provincial suspense is reminiscent of Camilla Lackberg's excellent Patrik Hedstrom detective series set in a Swedish fishing community. City level crime in a small town setting. A big riff for the narrator too. Tim Dagleish has just the right voice for the story.
