The Hanging Tree is a gripping adventure through the secret streets of London and is a fascinating mix of urban fantasy, crime, folklore and myth. Each of Ben's previous titles; Rivers of London, Moon Over Sohos, Whispers Underground, Broken Homes and Foxglove Summer have all been Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller and have attracted rave reviews.

Arlidge has produced a number of prime-time crime serials for ITV, including Torn, The Little House, Undeniable and Innocent. He also writes for Silent Witness and is piloting original crime series for both UK and US networks.
