THE LATE GREATS

The Late Great By Nick Quantrill

Having been convinced by their manager, Kane Major, to put their acrimonious break-up behind them and launch a comeback, New Holland, Hull’s most successful band of the 1990s, is reforming. Allowing one privileged journalist to document the process.

Joe Geraghty is employed to act as a liaison between the different camps. What appears to be a straightforward assignment sees him neck deep in trouble when singer, Greg Tasker, disappears leaving behind a trail of people who wanted him out of their lives. Geraghty has to choose sides and the investigation penetrates deeper into the city. As the rich and famous rub shoulders with the poor and vulnerable, the stakes increase. Forced to keep his friends close but his enemies’ closer still, the case could see Joe Geraghty lose everything.

Tampa homicide lieutenant Carl Kane has led up grisly crime scenes before, but this one is different it’s identical to the remains left thirty years prior by a man who had whipped the city into chaos.

But Jack Redding, or as the media called him, The Quilter, had been put to death in the nineties. These murders are the doing of a copycat someone with inside knowledge of the original crimes.
As the bodies pile up, the motivation for the killings and the connection shared by the victims become clear. Kane must race around the clock to find the person or persons responsible for recreating the work of the most heinous murderer Tampa has ever seen. Little does Kane know his path will lead him to one of the most horrifying scenes he’s ever witnessed. In his line of work, and after recent events, that’s saying something.
