In this third outing for DI Jack Sallt the stakes are raised.
Two children have been abducted on their way home from school. Their father, a man in the public eye, wants answers fast and Jack doesn’t have any.
All roads are going to nowhere. He doesn’t know who took the children and he doesn’t know why the children were taken. All that Jack Sallt knows is that it is up to him to find them, and find them alive.
Another story set in the beautiful North Norfolk landscape
Two men are found in a beached boat, one dead, one seriously injured, stretching the resources of an already under-funded police force.
Suspended Detective Inspector Jack Sallt is reluctantly rushed back on duty to face his most perplexing and dangerous case yet, where old foes move in the shadows, threatening violence and controlling him with sensual taunts.
In the tense climax, Jack has to face his relentless enemies head on, risking not only his own life but also those of his colleagues and loved ones.
When the naked body of a young man is found in a local beauty spot, Detective Inspector Mike Malone has two problems.
Firstly to find the young man’s identity and secondly to find out who murdered him. However, things are never simple and when Mike also discovers that one of his own is in trouble, he realises that an old adversary is once again playing him for a fool.
With Detective Alan Shepherd at his side, Mike follows the twists and turns of both cases, finding along the way that sometimes love and sex can be two sides of a very twisted coin.
This seventh novel in the series is once again a quirky trip into the town that Mike Malone has made his own and familiar faces pop up to make their voices heard.
