The floor felt hard beneath her face. Nancy opened her eyes. Blinked several times. A pain seared through her head. She could feel fluid. No. She was lying in fluid.
When a body is discovered in a burnt-out barn in the Warwickshire countryside, DI Will Jackman is called to investigate.
Nancy Faraday wakes up on the kitchen floor. The house has been broken into and her boyfriend is missing. As the case unravels, DI Jackman realises that nothing is quite as it appears and everyone, it seems, has a secret.
Can he discover the truth behind the body in the fire, and track down the killer before Nancy becomes the next victim?
A brilliant police procedural – with heart!
This is the second in the DI Will Jackman series, the third already in print and I will confess that I binge read the two, one after the other last week. I do love a good series!
Jane Isaac writes a well plotted, masterful, engaging and twisty police procedural. Her protagonist has flair, charm, manners, intelligence, empathy and a tragic personal history. The policing feels authentic – nothing slick, no sleight of hand to magically tie up all the loose end. This is great story telling with wonderful characters.
PS the next book The Lies Within – is even better!
Oh, I do like a good police procedural series, Carol! And the best ones have solid characters and don’t wallow in gore. Sounds like this one fits the bill.
This one is excellent Margot- and the next is even better and our good friend Rebecca also give it the thumbs up 🙂
Pleased to read that you’re enjoying this series Carol. I’ve had the 1st book in my ‘what-to-read-next’ pile for awhile now. Must cut down on library books & read more of my own 🌝
I think this would be s good series to ” binge read” – i do love reading a good series one after the other.
