Detective Inspector Joe Lazarus always believed he could solve any murder, until it came to his own.
When Lazarus storms a Lincolnshire farmhouse, he expects to bring down the drug gang within it; instead, he discovers his own bleeding-out body and a spirit guide called Daisy-May.
She's there to enlist him to The Dying Squad, a spectral police force who solve crimes their flesh and blood colleagues cannot.
Lazarus reluctantly accepts and returns to the Lincolnshire Badlands, where he faces dangers from both the living and the dead in his quest to discover the identity of his killer - before they kill again.
