Debbie's Paying the Piper

Fans of Debbie Bennett's gritty crime book Hamelin's Child can now get their hands on the sequel - Paying the Piper.
The blurb:
Michael is piecing his life back together after his time spent as a rent boy. But it's hard and although he's been clean of drugs for months, the nightmares are still too real and he can't come to terms with Lee's death and Eddie's impending trial.

Sometimes other people's troubles can seem easier to deal with. When Michael meets Amanda at the cashpoint, it's a chance to focus on someone other than himself, and finding Amanda's missing husband and baby may just be his salvation.

But the shadows of his past won't let him go. The bank account they've set up for him is full of easy cash and Eddie's old boss Carl can help Amanda. And suddenly Michael is in deeper than he ever imagined possible.

This thriller is set six months after the events in Hamelin's Child and contains adult material.
Paying the Piper is available in paperback and multiple ebook formats as follows:
