"An exciting first novel, from a huge new talent". (Mo Hayder). Every so often a thriller appears that offers more to the reader than just entertainment. White Crocodile is just that. When emotionally damaged mine-clearer Tess Hardy travels to Cambodia to find out the truth behind her ex-husband's death, she doesn't know much about the country or its beliefs. On arrival, she finds that teenage mothers are going missing, while others are being found mutilated and murdered. As local superstitions breed fear, Tess is drawn into a web of lies that stretches from Cambodia to another murder in England, and a violent secret twenty years old.
