A violent murder
A community living in fear
A detective with everything to lose
Violent burglars have been terrorising residents across the English countryside. But when a mutilated body is discovered in a Cotswolds house, it becomes clear that this is no ordinary group of opportunist thieves.
As Detective Jack aware investigates, he discovers locals with dark secrets, hidden crimes – and hits countless dead ends. With few leads and the violent attacks escalating, he will have to act audaciously as the criminals if he hopes to stop them.
When aware meets Charlotte Miles, a terrified woman with links to the group, he must use her to lure the unsuspecting killers into one last job, and into his trap. But with the law already stretched to breaking point, any failure will be on Warr’s head – and any more blood spilled, on his hands…
This book is so good! It was a page turner for me.
DS Warr is meticulous in his job. He has no time for mistakes.
“Charlotte Miles, for three years you’ve been De Voe’s Judas Horse, now you’re mine.” – DS Jack Warr
Loved the insight into Jack’s personal life. We got to know him as a family man and not only as a cop chasing burglars.
Beautifully written, entertaining and keeps the attention of the reader.
Lynda La Plante has always been a favourite of mine and this book has proved why once again. She doesn’t disappoint.
I may have wanted some more damage to be done to the one character, but he got what was coming to him.
An entertaining read.
Thanks to Jonathan Ball Publishers for gifting me a copy of this book.
