A brilliant crime novel and prequel to the acclaimed BBC
series by the show's creator and sole writer
Meet Detective Chief Inspector John Luther. He's a murder detective
with an extraordinary case-clearance rate. He's obsessive,
instinctive, and intense. Nobody who ever stood at his side has a
bad word to say about him. And yet there are rumors that Luther is
bad-not corrupt, not on the take, but tormented. After years of
chasing the most depraved criminals in London's gritty underworld,
he seethes with a hidden fury that at times he can barely control.
Sometimes it sends him to the brink of madness, making him do
things any other detective wouldn't and shouldn't do.
Luther: The Calling, the first in a new series of novels
featuring DCI John Luther, takes us into Luther's past and into his
mind. It is the story of the serial killer case that tore his
personal and professional relationships apart and propelled him
over the precipice-beyond fury, beyond vengeance, all the way to
the other side of the law. Is Luther a force for good or a man
hell-bent on self-destruction? Edgar Award-winning writer Neil
Cross has created one of the most compelling characters in modern
crime fiction. Luther: The Calling is a compulsively
readable novel by the writer hailed by The Guardian as
"Britain's own Stephen King."
