DI Hannah Robbins series @RebeccaJBradley #NottinghamCrime

Rebecca’s Nottingham police procedural has been a huge inspiration for my writing and my novels like hers are set in and around Nottingham. So I wanted to go back and look over her Six Hannah Collins books!

When catching a killer isn’t enough…

The dumped body of a girl is found in an alleyway, forcing Detective Inspector Hannah Robbins into the darker side of Nottingham. The scene is brutal, demanding Hannah bring closure to the girl’s media-hungry mother.

When Hannah arrests the killer it becomes clear that all is not what it seems. This was not a single act of violence. There is a long shadow being cast and a larger problem. And someone wants to stop Hannah from finding out the truth.

All the while a member of her team is hiding a life-changing secret that could have serious repercussions for the investigation. But Hannah is too distracted by the case to pick up the cues.

Things take a disturbing turn when Hannah finds evidence that indicates a killer is only a hairs-breath away from claiming his next victim.

Just how far is she willing to go to save the next girl?

“Wow a book that is written about Nottingham that I really enjoyed and left me begging for the next instalment” I wrote in my review of the books I had read in 2016, though I had heard Rebbeca talk and began to follow her on twitter I loved her first outing.

A rising death toll. A city in panic.

When a previously healthy woman is found dead in her home, Detective Inspector Hannah Robbins finds herself set against a father driven by his anger and whose grief knows no bounds.

Six months after their last big case, Hannah is still haunted by the events of that night. As her team struggle, Hannah’s leadership skills are questioned.

With the body count climbing and the city of Nottingham in social meltdown, the team finds themselves in a deadly race against a serial killer determined to prove a point.

And Hannah finds herself targeting an individual with whom she has more in common than she could possibly know.

“Likeable characters and a brilliant read! my favourite Nottingham writer!!” there is a medical aspect to this novel, that I found increasingly interesting and the “bad guys” reasoning to why he was doing what he was doing. Oh and the close proximity of this novel setting to where I live!

Detective Inspector Hannah Robbins is called out to the murder of Simon Talbot. Local gang leader who only the day before was released from court a free man, found not guilty of the murder of police officer, Ken Blake.

Now, he has a bullet in his head and witness details on his person.

Hannah is up against the clock 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.

Could the killer be closer to home than anyone would like?

I reviewed this for my blog back in 2018 “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.”

A social media shaming. A killer with a message. A deadly combination.

When the body of a man is left in the city centre set up as a realistic police crime scene, DI Hannah Robbins is forced to enter a world that can break a person, a case and a reputation.

Social media platforms light up and Hannah is pitted against the raging online monster and a killer who has already lost everything.

Can she catch the killer and put him behind bars or will she become part of his sadistic game?

I sadly missed my chance to review this Hannah Robbins novel, but looking at the Amazon reviews…

“Oh my goodness gracious me, The Twisted Web is one hell of a well written read. The author grabs your attention from the start and the story starts in such a way that will stick in my memory for a long time to come – Ginger Book Geek”

“I think this was my favourite so far. The plot is fast-moving and exciting, ruthless and satisfying. Linda K”

Maybe I should push this up my TBR.

A deadly game. An unstoppable killer. The perfect alibi.

Lucy Anderson is late collecting her daughter from nursery. A mistake that could prove fatal. 
Her daughter is gone and there is only one way Lucy can get her back. The ransom is simple, she has to kill someone…

And this is just the beginning. A deadly game with a domino effect has started as the real killer forces others to do his bidding.

Can detective inspector Hannah Robbins find the killer’s next puppet before they’re forced to strike or will this be the case where her opponent has found the perfect way to kill?

Pick up Kill For Me for impossible choices and moral dilemmas and see where you would fall.

Finally sorting myself out, I read this book for Rebecca’s book tour with Damp Pebbles.

“I love how she has found away to give her novels a new theme’s with Martin’s Asperger’s diagnoses. It has given the character more depth and something different to your every day police officer. This novel seems to also focus on how people can miss understand the signs of the illness as laziness or lack of interest at the task in hand. As Martin starts to have issues with a senior officer who is miss understanding the signs.”

How do you fight someone you can’t see?

Detective Inspector Hannah Robbins finds herself on the most perilous case of her career when a young man darts in front of her car. He’s covered in someone else’s blood and has no memory of how he got there.

Digging up the man’s past puts Hannah on a collision course with a dangerous stranger who wants history to remain hidden and who will stop at nothing to keep his secret.

Hannah finds herself in the biggest fight of her life.

Is this finally a case too far?

I reviewed this book on my blog recently.

“This is a DI Hannah Robins novel it’s a little different, Hannah herself has been kidnapped and her team are tasked in finding her, this story gives the other members of her team a chance to shine.”

“This novel concentrates a lot on family, the family we have and the family that we choose. We a closer look at Hannah’s family dynamics that I know has been touched on in previous novels it feels more personal in this novel.”

Rebecca also recently revealed the title, cover and blurb for her SEVENTH Hannah Collins books, I can only day dream of having that many….

see no evil

A brutal killer with a vicious calling card targets the older males in Nottingham. Are they connected or are the murders simply random attacks?

That is the question Detective Inspector Hannah Robbins and her team must investigate as they hunt down the monster on their streets.

But Hannah has just returned to work after a terrifying ordeal and is still distressed as snapshots of the trauma plague her every waking moment.  

Across town Amelia Vaughn, a senior Crown prosecutor, questions herself when a sensitive police file lands on her desk. However, things begin to look more sinister closer to home. 

As the two professionals struggle to hold it together, the murders become more frequent. The two women are on a collision course that no one could see coming. Can they each do what it takes to bring the killer to justice or will personal attachments result in another loss of life?

I personally can’t wait for this!

Rebecca Bradley has also written a couple of standalone novels Dead blind and Perfect Murder along with a novella which is set prior to the first book Shallow Waters called Three Weeks Dead.

Rebecca surprisingly is a self published author who has already achieved so much and as they say things can only get better!

Download A Deeper Song for a heart-stopping read where the stakes couldn’t be higher.

For fans of Peter James and Angela Marsons

My Thoughts:

I am a BIG fan of Rebecca Bradley’s work and truth be known she is a large inspiration behind my Nottingham police procedural novels. So, when I had another chance to review her latest book I jumped at the chance! Though this is a DI Hannah Robins novel it’s a little different.

Hannah herself has been kidnapped and her team are tasked in finding her, this story gives the other members of her team a chance to shine. There is a mixture of real-life police work thrown in with fiction and though I know now that this is because Rebecca is a retired police officer, I think anyone new to her work wouldn’t notice.

This novel concentrates a lot on family, the family we have and the family that we choose. We a closer look at Hannah’s family dynamics that I know has been touched on in previous novels it feels more personal in this novel.

Rebecca also brings the character of Aaron more into focus in this novel, showing us how he feels in certain situations even though he has autism. I suspect after reading dead blind and the continued growth of Aaron Rebecca enjoys writing about character’s who have disabilities but still manage to hold down senior positions in the police force.

I am looking forward to the next Hannah novel and hope that I to can portray Nottingham crime and those that protect us as well as Rebecca does.

My Thoughts:

I love Rebecca Bradley’s books, I love her characters especially Hannah. I know when i read one of her books they will be full of detail of what really happens at a crime scene and the policing. I’ve also lived in Nottingham all my life so I know of many of the locations well.  With Rebecca being a retired police officer you know she knows her stuff you can see and feel the locations in the novel.

I love how she has found away to give her novels a new theme’s with Martin’s Asperger’s diagnoses. It has given the character more depth and something different to your every day police officer. This novel seems to also focus on how people can miss understand the signs of the illness as laziness or lack of interest at the task in hand. As Martin starts to have issues with a senior officer who is miss understanding the signs.

Rebecca is one of the authors I always recommend and look to for crime fiction readers.
