When his girlfriend, Chelsea, is murdered, Luke Kelly becomes the prime suspect in the police investigation.
But Luke knows something the cops don’t: he is innocent.
With the help of a washed up ex-cop, Luke sets out to find the real killer, a journey that will take him far beyond the quiet academic life he once knew into the dark corners of the city he loves, from a life of ideas and innocence, into a world of violence and fear.
Coping with his grief and a growing realisation of his own inadequacy, Luke struggles to keep going in his quest for justice. Only the persistence of his strangely driven new friend, Ronnie Walker, keeps him moving forward. But Ronnie’s dark nature frightens Luke too and looks set to drag them both into the deep shadows behind the bright façade of the life he knew.
Bright City Deep Shadows is the first book in the Luke Kelly crime story series.
