Who doesn’t love a race against time? Throw in some peril, family issues, a rookie cop, a criminal gang and a whiff of corruption and frankly you’ve got yourself a fast paced crime thriller.
I love the concept of ‘The Crimsons’ brilliantly credible and menacing and yet they were all so flawed and human.
Jake Tanner has the clean lines and good heart of a future hero, he was good to follow.
I am now sure if this is a debut or just the first in a series but either way it reads like an experienced author and Jake Tanner and his world burst into life in my mind.
A great thriller – perfectly distracting.
Book Blurb: Candice Strachan can’t breathe.
A small jewellers is raided in Guildford High Street and leaves police chasing their tails. Reports suggest that it’s The Crimsons, an organised crime group the police have been hunting for years.
The device wrapped around her neck is suffocating her, crushing her chest.
But for rookie detective, Jake Tanner, something doesn’t seem right. The heist doesn’t fit any of their previous patterns. And the last time Jake met them, he was staring down the barrel of their gun, bargaining for his life.
The men who put it there have left her to die.
When the shop owner is kidnapped and a collar bomb is attached to her neck, Jake learns one of his own is involved – a police officer. Her life now rests in Jake Tanner’s hands. As Jake follows the group on a wild goose chase, he questions everything he knows about his team. Who can he trust? And is he prepared to find out?
