Hell's Fire

A Novel of Suspense

Christopher Simms

"A persuasive, original plot. Realism about the underside of modern life is combined with psychological insight in an excellent thriller."—Jessica Mann, Literary Review

The deliberate torching of a church creates outrages across Manchester, and when a charred corpse and satanic symbols are found in the smoking ruins, detective Jon Spicer and the city’s Major Incident Team are called in. Spicer quickly finds himself drawn into the depths of a horrifying religious underworld he didn’t know existed. Soon, fresh killings bring the realization that those responsible for the burnings are prepared to commit even more brutal crimes in their twisted homage to God. As emotions and paranoia flare throughout Manchester, Spicer fears for those closest to him as he struggles to halt the continuing atrocities.

Christopher Simms is married with four children and works as a freelance copy writer. His acclaimed debut novel Killing the Beast was selected as a Best Crime Novel of the Year by Shots magazine. His second novel, Pecking Order, was selected as the Best British Crime Novel by Deadly Pleasures magazine. He lives in Manchester.
