Summary

When NYPD detective Callum Doyle’s partner is murdered, and then his replacement is also brutally killed, suspicion falls on Doyle himself. Then he receives an anonymous message: This is just the beginning. Anyone he gets close to will die - and that includes his family.

Desperate to find out who is responsible, but with his every move putting others in danger, Doyle has to ask himself: how low would he sink in order to get his life back?

Series that could have legs

As a fan of crime thrillers and especially Roy Grace, Harry Bosch and Logan McRae, I was looking for a new series to get into as I'm up to date with all the others. I was pleasantly surprised with this debut outing for Callum Doyle. This series shows promise and could develop into a long running winner for David Jackson. Already downloaded the next instalment. Keep them coming.

Disappointed after reading A Tapping at my Door

I thought I'd try this after really enjoying A Tapping at my Door by the same author. I can't believe it was written by the same man. Dont know if it's cause the first book was set in uk and read by an English narrator that I could relate to it more (I'm from uk), but the story, writing style and narration style just didn't draw me in. I found it a struggle to listen to and only sat it out so as not to waste a credit; in fact this is the first time I've increased listening speed as the standard speed added to the pain! After the first book I thought I'd discovered a new author to follow but don't think I'll try any more books now.

Could be the start of a good series

Could be the start of a good series. But I was a little put off at the start when Callum Doyle, the main character, informed a murdered cop's wife of his murder in a sloppy, unprofessional manner creating more duress for the widow. Then he informs his own wife in the curt, professional way he should have done with the widow. There were also a number of comments/demands from and considerations given to Doyle's wife that didn't fit well with the role and thought process of a police detective or his wife and tended to undermine the credibility of Callum the main character. Found myself using it as background noise a few times. Maybe the next one will be a little more polished?
