Nottingham’s Favourite DI Is Back!
24 hours after he walked away from court a free man, cop killer and gang leader Simon Talbot is found murdered. In his possession; the name of a protected witness from his trial.
For DI Hannah Robbins, it’s a race against time to find Talbot’s killer, and locate the bystander before it’s too late.
But as Hannah delves deeper into the past, she begins to question the integrity of the whole operation.
Where do you turn when you can’t trust the police?
Nottingham’s top female DI is back, for the third instalment of the DI Hannah Robbins series. Believe it or not it has been over a year since Rebecca’s last novel “Made To Be Broken” and her Novella “Three Weeks Dead.”
Living in Nottingham myself I am always excited to read Rebecca’s novels as many of the geographical locations are known and loved. Such as the Pitch and Piano and Hannah’s home next to Nottingham castle.
The story is told from three POVs the DI herself, Pasha who is replacing a popular team member and Lee an officer who has recently been through a traumatic ordeal witnessing the death of his partner during a routine house call.
The story begins as Simon Talbot walks away from a court a free man after the jury find him no guilty of the murder of PC Ken Blake. Simon Talbot is then found murdered in his car the following day and Hannah and her team are called to investigate. But this isn’t an open shut case when the name of a witness in the case against Simon Talbot is found in the car and later found with his tongue cut out.
This isn’t just a procedural crime story; Rebecca adds depth and emotion to the story as Hannah and her team struggle to adjust to their new team members, the new DCI whose ideas differ from his predecessor, the officer from professional standards department and Pasha.
All our favourites are back Hannah’s partner DS Aaron Stone, DCs Martin Thacker and Ross Leavy and CSI Doug Howell.
Rebecca has previously self-published her novels, having recently secured herself an agent she will certainly be a name to watch.
