Ramblings

The third novel in this wonderful series by Bo Brennan – worth waiting for and published in January 2017.

The truth was dead and buried, she was dead and buried, until now …

For overworked firefighter Gray Davies, an emergency call-out to the scene of a horrific hit-and-run is all in a day’s work . . . until the terrified victim disappears, leaving her blood on his hands and unanswered questions on his lips.

For Detective India Kane it’s an added complication in a far more sinister crime – a series of brutal, cold-blooded murders the missing hit-and-run victim could hold the key to solving. With a genitally mutilated corpse on her patch, and the dead woman’s identity shrouded in secrecy, India’s set on a collision course with a deadly, unknown enemy.

Detective Chief Inspector AJ Colt is well acquainted with the enemy – courtesy of a divisive high-profile grooming case, he’s currently public enemy number one. As cultures clash, simmering tensions explode, bringing terror and bloodshed to the streets, and Colt to the attention of some of the country’s most dangerous and deranged individuals.

When one of them brings their work home, nothing will ever be the same again – for the wages of sin . . . is death.

The third installment in The Final Trick series featuring Eva Roberts and Dan Bradley – another page-turner as always from Solomon.

A young call centre worker dies in tragic circumstances – her hand plunged into the broken casing of a live server unit. The fatal incident means an urgent investigation, but Detective Inspector Hogarth seems intent on passing the buck to an HSE investigations team. But Eva and Dan’s latest client is certain Jane Wallah didn’t die by accident. They learn she was working to uncover a company conspiracy. It seems the Scarlet and Lace call centre has skeletons in the closet… and before too long, others will join them.

The long shadow of suspicion is cast in all directions, even to their client himself. When death strikes again, Eva is convinced the dark secrets of Scarlet and Lace must be brought out into the light.

Meanwhile, Councillor Cotterill is getting in too deep. 

And Eva and Dan discover a man is watching them from the streets. 

A confrontation is inevitable.
