The Depraved

By James Raven

Can you really buy happiness?

Singer Helen Troy loves being an A-list celebrity. There are the endless perks, private jets, fancy cars and more money than she’ll ever need. 

But when Helen is kidnapped during a night out in London, she discovers there’s a serious downside to being rich, famous and beautiful. DCI Sam Quinn, of the Met’s Celebrity Crime Squad, knows that Helen has become the tragic victim of her own success. His own actress wife Karen suffered the same fate. 

As he begins to investigate her abduction, he loses his prime suspect. But when more are bumped off in gang-style killings – and especially when an execution takes place in a police interview room – it’s seriously embarrassing for the Met and a major headache for DCI Quinn. 

A picture of Helen’s body pops up on the internet but things don’t stack up for DCI Quinn, who discovers that five other glamorous and successful young women have also appeared in the same way. 

But is Helen Troy as dead as she looks? 

The Depraved is the second book in the DCI Sam Quinn series
