For a debut novel this is very accomplished, and in an amusing twist is set in and around my neck of the woods, with familiar places popping up as I read.
A frozen hand is found in an abandoned flat, whose is it and how did it end up there? DI Jake Porter and DS Nick Styles match the DNA to a woman who had been missing for 30 years. What happened to her?
A simple investigation turns into a knotty and dangerous case, pitting the police against a gang of criminals and members of their own force.
I really enjoyed this, I like a good, complex crime thriller and this delivered. Pacey, well written, fully fledged out characters, the rest of this proposed series should be interesting.
The hardback isn’t out till April next year but if this is your sort of read I recommend putting it on your tbr list now.
