With former rescuer DCI Stan McGuire as her mentor and John ('Wingsy') Wing as her partner, she thrives on the pace and banter that go with the job. As the body count increases and the force's biggest-ever manhunt gets underway, Nina is determinded to find the murderer. But when the story of her own traumatic childhood comes to light - a past she's worked hard to hide - her role on the team is threatened. Suddenly her job, her peace of mind and her safety are all in danger. And this time DCI Stan McGuire won't be there to save her. Fast-paced, and with a shocking twist, this compelling crime debut by police insider Lisa Cutts takes us to the heart of the Major Incident Room - introducing a gutsy new heroine to the crime scene.
The start of something great
Surely the measure of a good book is how it takes hold of you and leaves you unable to put it down. Well that is what this book does. The characters are familiar and easy to relate to, making it easy to slip into the story and become immersed in the emotion and build up of suspense. It is written from experience and knowledge and that gives it the edge over others in the genre. As a character, Nina Foster has a lot more to give and this is clearly only the beginning. I cannot wait for the next instalment and will buy further books from this budding new author without hesitation. Great first book Lisa Cutts.
