No clues. No time. One chance to expose a terrifying secret.
DS Wendy Knight has endured both tragedy and pain in her short time with Mildenheath CID's murder squad. Her grizzled partner DCI Jack Culverhouse has seen it all. But neither of them is prepared for a case without a single lead.
A journalist with her finger on the pulse of Mildenheath's corrupt underbelly is beaten within an inch of her life. With a comatose victim and a defenceless child as the only witness, Knight and Culverhouse must reveal the horrifying truth before the ruthless killer comes back to finish the job.
In Too Deep is a police procedural crime novel that can be enjoyed as a standalone or as the fifth book in the Knight & Culverhouse series. If you like gritty criminal investigations, fast-paced mysteries, and surprises you won't see coming, then you'll love the latest entry from Adam Croft, the author of Her Last Tomorrow.

this is my 5th book and I enjoy them
I am amazed that the narration, which is good, has not been edited to take out mistakes and the comments when these happens have been left in. I could do a better job myself
"Barely OK for me.."
This book was not nearly as enjoyable as the others’. There was no murder. The whole book was spent figuring out who TRIED to kill Tanya Henderson, and Culverhouse’s wife turning out to be such a big liar during all those years apart, and Culverhouses’ sudden obsession with finding his 12 or 13 year old daughter that he hasn’t seen in almost 9 years. When he does find her his blonde haired daughter has black hair and the first thing she says is, “Dad, what the F**K are you doing here?” Really? That’s the kind of kid Mr. Croft is giving Culverhouse? I think I might be done with this series. Between his problem drinking and all the crap about the PCC in every book, and now the potty mouth kid, I’ve about had enough.
No murder, no serial killer, no nothing that one usually expects from Adam Croft.
Again no sex or anything resembling it but the F-bomb was used 37 times.
As to the narration: On about page 51 it was weird for a minute or two. Adam Croft was reading and made a mistake, stopped and mumbled something then started the same sentence again. Then he made another mistake and snapped his fingers a time or 3. Then made another mistake and just clapped his hands for a second or two and started the sentence again. Then on page 171 he made another mistake in his reading and said “bollocks,” cleared his throat and read the sentence again. Anyway, he’s not as good a narrator and Nigel Patterson was. I don’t think Croft knows what kind of voice he wants Culverhouse to have because it kept changing.
