The Scorned

Alex Khan

15 October 2023 All day

Sidra Hussain has just made it home after a date. Opening the door, her blood runs cold as she realises the caller is here to take her life…

When a young Asian woman is found brutally murdered in her North London home, DS Mumtaz ‘Moomy’ Ali begins the investigation, but is blindsided by a case with no obvious motive.

When a second female victim is found, with no obvious links to Sidra apart from also having her throat slit, it seems Moomy is up against every detective’s nightmare… a serial killer bringing terror to the streets of London.

As the case deepens, Moomy and her detective partner Sarah Heaton uncover a sinister underground group brought together by their hatred of women. But their roots run deep, and they count some very powerful people in their number.

To stop the bloodshed, Moomy must delve into the darkest corners of the internet, a place where hatred festers, unchecked – but she needs to be fast, because the killer has their sights set on her…

A hard-hitting, ripped-from-the-headlines detective novel with a shocking twist – fans of Angela Marsons, Cara Hunter and Ajay Chowdhury won’t be able to put this down.
