    No one liked Jake Kinsey. A rich man, he turned up out of nowhere, acquired Exmouth’s trophy penthouse flat, and then bought his way into the local rowing club. And now he’s dead. D/S Jimmy Suttle, a newcomer to the Devon and Cornwall force from his old job on Major Crimes in Portsmouth, is the one detective who suspects that Kinsey has been killed. His boss, beset by budget cuts and the pressure of other cases, needs to move on. The enquiry is dead in the water.

    Jimmy Suttle has barely got his feet under the desk at his new job. Having flown in the face of his superiors on his first big case he now finds himself trying to track down a hugely skilled killer before another innocent dies and before the media tear the force apart. Jimmy is facing a case that could end his career. And his life.

    good

    didn't grab me as much as first which is odd as actually a better story.. just dragged at little bit in the middle. But still a reasonable read.

And in this world of darkness and dysfunction are the artefacts and memories of colonial atrocities that are returning to haunt them all.

    unimpressive

    very mixed feelings about this book, the main murder mystery was very weak, yet the side story running through was really quite gripping and the only ..Show More »
