Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated seventh novel in the bestselling DI Nick Dixon Crime Series.

A man has been mutilated and left to drown on the incoming tide, handcuffed in his van. With the murder bearing a striking resemblance to a string of sadistic killings carried out with surgical precision in 1990s gangland Manchester, it can mean only one thing: the killer is back.

Transferred to the Major Investigation Team, DI Nick Dixon is assigned a new partner and sent to Manchester. Meanwhile, the gruesome murders in Somerset continue.

Convinced of a connection with the unsolved gangland killings, and with the odds stacked against him, Dixon takes the ultimate gamble, determined to bring the killer to justice before it's too late.

But is it the same killer? If so, why has he resurfaced now? And how many more must die?

    "love all these books"

    nothing i can say that havent said before. i love tgese books, well constructed stories with characters you grow with and like and a competent narrator. if you liked PD James Adam Dalgliesh then you will probably enjpy these books. Can be read independently but would advise to read in order.

    "Disappointed"

    Having read and enjoyed the previous 6 books I was looking forward to listening to book 7. Unfortunately Napolean Ryan's voice was nothing like Nick Dixon's voice that was in my head! I did not finish listening to the book but I am looking forward to reading it.

    "Good story told at a great pace"

    This is an entertaining story well worth reading. My concern for the future is that Nick is in danger of becoming too much of a superman. It is credible at the moment.

    "Gave up"

    I'm sure the story was good but the narrator was awful - every descriptive sentence delivered like some profound, earth-shattering information was being delivered, character voices equally poor, especially falsetto for female characters. First book I've ever given up on.

    "Another triumph"

    Loved the story. Very gripping. Although I am used to Napolean Ryan's narration I can't help wishing it were someone better!

    "One of the best current British Crime Novelists"

    I am a big fan of Peter Robinson and I am current on all his books. I hate waiting a year for the next one to come out. I stumbled on Damien Boyd's work about 2 years ago and I think he is fast approaching Peter Robinson's caliber of crime fiction. Now I there are two books in British Crime Fiction I can look forward to every year.
    I need also mention that Napoleon Ryan is an excellent narrator and really adds to the enjoyability of the series. Audible 20.

    "Each book gets better"

    Really enjoyed this one. I am becoming very fond of the main characters . Starting this book I had forgotten the very particular cadence that the narrator Napoleon Ryan has but once you get used to it it's fine he is also brilliant at regional accents . Looking forward to the next one.

    "Another excellent DI Nick Dixon suspense mystery!"

    The publisher's summary provides all of the appropriate background to Heads or Tails which is Book 7 in the Detective Inspector Nick Dixon series by British author Damien Boyd. The novel, like the prior 6 in the series, has lots of action and intense suspense. It is a fast moving mystery with realistic and likable characters (except for the bad guys). Heads of Tails is an outstanding police procedural. Napoleon Ryan narrates very well.

    "Does not Disappoint"

    Heads or Tails does not disappoint. The character development and backstories from the previous books clearly emerge and gel nicely into Book 7. Another suspenseful rush. Hard to put down at night, easy to lose sleep over. We root for our hero from beginning to end. I can't wait for Book 8. It's also clear that with all the plot and backstories complete and with Jane's character becoming very prominent, the DI Nixon series can easily become a well watched weekly TV series. Hope that happens. I really think it would have a great US audience as well.
