Book now for Chris Hammer

Silver is Chris Hammer’s new, enthralling and propulsive sequel to the bestselling Scrublands.

We see the return of journalist Martin Scarsden who, for half a lifetime has run from his past. But now there is no escaping. He'd vowed never to return to his hometown, Port Silver, and its traumatic memories. But now his new partner, Mandy Blonde, has inherited an old house in the seaside town and Martin knows their chance of a new life together won't come again.
Martin arrives to find his best friend from school days has been brutally murdered, and Mandy is the chief suspect. With the police curiously reluctant to pursue other suspects, Martin goes searching for the killer. And finds the past waiting for him.
