About the Book
24 hours after he walked away from court a free man, cop killer and gang leader Simon Talbot is found murdered. In his possession; the name of a protected witness from his trial.
For DI Hannah Robbins, it’s a race against time to find Talbot’s killer, and locate the bystander before it’s too late.
But as Hannah delves deeper into the past, she begins to question the integrity of the whole operation.
Where do you turn when you can’t trust the police?
I was looking forward to reading the latest Hannah Robbins book, it’s always nice to return to a favourite character. Most of the team have returned, and there are a few additions. Like Hannah, I wasn’t entirely sure how to feel about Sally’s replacement but I think she will grow on me. She is gutsy, and determined to put her past behind her and be an important member of the team.
I think there is a lot of the author in these books. The grieving process that a team of officers goes through feels real and is not something I have read in other crime books and have it mean as much. The determination that they solve it on their own without the help or otherwise from professional standards. And there is the attention to detail, she shows that even the most mundane of jobs is important to an investigation.
There was a few times that I had a lump in my throat, none of which I can say much about because of spoilers but one of them shows that there will definitely be another book to look forward to in the future.
