Summary

An abandoned cotton mill holds horrific secrets

Police partners DI Calladine and DS Ruth Bayliss face one of their toughest challenges yet. 

A group of homeless people have set up camp in the grounds of a disused cotton mill belonging to local businessman Damien Chase. But one of the men is not what he seems. He has a secret he will do anything to cover up. And once Calladine and Bayliss investigate, they find the crimes go much further than they could have ever imagined. Will Ruth be able to juggle her personal and professional lives, and can Calladine deal with their new boss, a woman he neither trusts nor likes? Willing to do anything to bring terrible suffering to an end, Calladine make an astonishing move.... 

If you like Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott, Mel Sherratt, Ruth Rendell or Mark Billingham, you will be gripped by this exciting new crime fiction writer.  

Dead Lost is book four of a new series of detective thrillers featuring DS Ruth Bayliss and DI Tom Calladine. They can be listened to together or as stand-alone novels.  

Tom Calladine is a single 51-year-old detective inspector who is devoted to his job. His personal life, however, is not so successful. Having been married and divorced before the age of 21 has set a pattern that he finds difficult to escape.  

Ruth Bayliss is in her mid-30s, plain-speaking but loyal. Her personal life is about to change forever.  

The series is set in the fictional village of Leesdon on the outskirts of an industrial northern English city. There is little work and a lot of crime. The bane of Calladine’s life is the Hobfield housing estate, breeding ground to all that is wrong with the area that he calls home.

Just as good as ever

I enjoyed this book and Jonathan Keebles interpretation although I do sometimes dislike Calladines voice

Great book and awesome narration..



Very good book. I read the first 3 a year or so ago so I decided to continue with the series.

This was about murder and young girls held captive and forced into prostitution as well as being auctioned off and sent to other parts of the world. It was about Tom and Ruth, a very pregnant Ruth, trying to put everything together and arrest all the right people.

There was no romance in this and the F-bomb was used 5 times.

As to the narrator: Love, love, love Jonathan Keeble. He does the DCI Ryan Mysteries by LJ Ross and I’ve listened to all 8 of those. He does great voices and he reads with such emotion.
