ONE SHOT – AMANDA COETZEE

‘In war there are no unwounded soldiers.’ – Jose Narosky
The enigmatic and darkly compelling Harry O’Connor, better known as Badger, is back in a fourth gripping crime thriller from Amanda Coetzee. This time the Major Crimes detective must pit his skills and wits and his dedicated team against a deadly sniper whose dark past in Afghanistan and South Africa has come back to haunt the streets of Bedford as they explode in an unprecedented drug war.

The ex-sniper from the British Armed Forces is a suspect in a series of killings and, despite the unusual affinity that Badger feels for the man, he must put aside his own devastating personal loss to track him down – from the rooftops of Bedford to the diamond auctions of the North West province in South Africa – to prevent the body count from climbing any higher.

PREVIOUS PRAISE FOR AMANDA COETZEE
‘Amanda Coetzee writes with verve and energy in a very original voice.’ – PETER JAMES
‘Coetzee’s writing is fast paced and compulsively readable and her maverick hero D.I. Harry O’Connor is an original, compelling character. Dark, sexy and disturbing, this was a spellbinding read.’ – JASSY MACKENZIE

AMANDA COETZEE works as a deputy headmistress. She grew up in Bedford, England, and now lives in Rustenburg with her husband and son. One Shot is Coetzee’s fourth nail-biting crime thriller featuring the dark and enigmatic hero Badger. It follows on from the success of Bad Blood (2011), Redemption Song (2012) and Flaming June (2013).
