‘Steve Mosby has become one of a handful of writers who make me excited about crime fiction’ – Val McDermid


The eighth novel from the 2012 CWA Dagger in the Library winner. A monster is stalking the city. Young women are being violently assaulted in their own homes, and DI Zoe Dolan knows it’s only a matter of time before the attacks escalate and someone is killed. An elderly widow is mourning her lost husband and retreating from the increasingly terrifying world around her. Her only support comes from her great-nephew, an odd young man, but the only one who seems to care. Jane Webster, a shy woman in her twenties, volunteers at a helpline. When she receives a call from a man claiming to be the attacker, she is forced to confront her fears and make a decision. It is a choice that will set all three women on a collision course with an evil far darker than they could have ever imagined... Steve Mosby won the 2012 CWA Dagger in the Library, and Black Flowers was shortlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2012. He is the chair of the 2014 Harrogate Crime Festival. He lives in Leeds with his family.
