Born in the late 40’s only a few years after the second world finished with all the hardships of rationing, cold houses windows running with condensation with frost forming on the inside as well as the outside, living in one room for heat. Growing up in the 50’s with little or none of the modern comforts of today’s modern world, my brother and sister were happy well as happy as you could be. I worked in various organizations including PO as a steward on cruise liners (I must write about that) then on the buildings picking bits of skills here and there and became a jack of all trades certainly master of none. Then joined the police stayed for 30 years mainly as a detective Sergeant dealing with all manner of criminal cases including child abuse rape cases and murder.

My Review

This is  a fairly harrowing, graphic book based around DS Jim Broadbent investigating rape & child abuse. 

His marriage has failed, he becomes involved with Jackie & their affair is rather steamy. Can Jim & his colleagues catch the attacker before they commit another offence. The book starts well & grips the reader, full of explanation & a good insight into how the police process information, it is apparent the author has previous experience in this field.
Not for the faint hearted due to the subject matter it is quite a difficult read but having said that if you ‘like’ a page-turner that keeps you on your toes set at a fairly fast pace then this is for you. View it as a crime thriller & it is a good suspenseful story! 
Thanks to the author & Ravenswood Publishing for the opportunity to read this in exchange for my honest opinion stars-3-0._V192197091_
