Vicki Newham

An exciting new voice on the crime scene, Whitstable-based author Vicki Newham's debut is a contemporary police procedural set in east London and starring DI Maya Rahman. A headmistress is found strangled in her East London school, her death the result of a brutal and ritualistic act of violence. Found at the scene is a single piece of card, written upon which is an ancient Buddhist precept: I shall abstain from taking the ungiven.

The second book in the series, Out of the Ashes, will be published in April 2019.

Vicki will be in conversation with author William Shaw.
