“Corrupt senior officers, a murder, a rape and a flasher. Can DI Terry McGuire’s day get any worse?
McGuire became a police officer to uphold the law and to protect those who cannot protect themselves. When he discovers a connection between a former friend and colleague and a body buried on a beach that appears to have been frozen for five years, McGuire knows there is only one course of action he can take.
With a murder, a rape and a flasher adding to McGuire’s headache, is there a connection between his colleagues and the awful events unfolding? Can McGuire stand up for what he believes and bring the perpetrators to justice, whoever they may be?”
Having not listened to many police procedurals, I went into this without any preconceptions and what I found was a great story.
There is a lot of research in this book, the authors, Arthur Cole and Nigel C. Williams, did their homework. Terry McGuire, the lead detective, is a well rounded and believable character, someone I certainly would not want to get on the bad side of, there are other characters also which come and go, not intrusive but also not forgetful.
The pace is good , I would have liked to have known a bit more background on the villain of the story, but mystery does breed intrigue.
Once again I am enthralled by the narrator is Jake Urry bringing his own unique brand of terror to an already dark tale.
Just when I thought Wales was a nice bright happy place, this book flips it over and shows its darker seedy underbelly, a side I’m happy to listen about and not get to close to.
These two authors are new to me, however it’s been a welcome introduction to both. At 3 hours and 40 minutes long this book is a brilliant place to start if you’re new to police procedurals or to the voice that is Jake Urry, then this book is where I would begin.
This is the first book in what looks like a great series, I’ll definatly get the rest to see where Terry ends up next.
