Reader Reviews

A good read about a detective working and getting results by bending the law, and this affect on his life. Would be interested in reading more in the series.

Really gripping crime thriller! I loved that it was set in Bradford and you could really picture the setting. I also loved the way that it had lots of action with great characters and relationships at the same time.
