Michael Redford died on his seventeenth birthday – the night Eddie picked him up off the street, shot him full of heroin and assaulted him.

Now he’s Mikey and he works for Joss. With streaked blond hair and a cute smile, he sleeps by day and services clients at night. Sometimes he remembers his old life, but with what he’s become now, he knows there is no return to his comfortable middle-class background.

Then he makes a friend in Lee. A child of the streets, Lee demands more from friendship than Mikey is prepared to give. But the police are closing in on them now and Mikey’s not sure anymore who he really is – streetwise Mikey or plain Michael Redford.

Hamelin’s Child was long-listed in the UK Crime Writers’ Association Debut Dagger Award. A thriller set in the seedy world of London’s drug rings, this book contains strong scenes and adult material.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

A very gripping tale, well written and totally believable. Debbie Bennett has created a world you don’t like to think exists in real life. Look forward to reading more from this great new author.


Written with an assured confidence, this book gripped from the first page to the last. Dealing with the side of life most of us have no first hand knowledge, it entertains and informs. Highly recommended unless you have to get up early for work the next morning.


I was amazed that this book could cover such a sensitive story yet come across so warm! I couldn’t put it down and read it within 48 hours. I just HAD to know what would happen next! A great story, well presented. I look fwd to future books by DJ Bennett.

About The Author

Debbie is a middle-aged boring civil servant with a secret life as a writer…

She’s worked in law enforcement for over 25 years, in a variety of different roles, which may be why the darker side of life tends to emerge in her writing. If she makes enough money selling books, perhaps she’ll be able to afford counselling instead.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – DJ Bennett and ENT appreciate it.
