The Detriment by David Videcette



“The truth costs nothing, but a lie can cost you everything…”A1V53wVe6jL._SY600_

June 2007: a barbaric nail bomb is planted outside a London nightclub, a spy is found dead in his garden, and a blazing Jeep is driven into Glasgow airport. Three events bound by an earth-shattering connection that should have remained buried forever.

From the author of ‘The Theseus Paradox’, the smash-hit 7/7 thriller based on true events, comes the sequel about a real-life mystery that threatens to destroy a nation. Detective Inspector Jake Flannagan must uncover how a series of astonishing events are inextricably linked, before the past closes in on him.

We all have secrets we say we’ll never tell…




A Riveting Read .. Outstanding!

Right from page one, this is an exciting book to read. The story races along at breakneck speed with so many events happening and investigations crossing over whilst other seemingly unrelated ones pop up – and yet, it all makes perfect sense. David Videcette’s writing has a clarity about it which makes you feel invested in this novel.

DI Jake Flannagan is obviously regarded as a bit of a renegade within the police force. The truth is that he really cares about investigating and getting the right people arrested for the crime perpetrated and, sometimes, following procedure doesn’t come up with the answers fast enough. Add in colleagues with a personal axe to grind, an on/off girlfriend, a liking for too much alcohol which he’s desperately trying to curb – not to mention an estranged wife and daughters – and you begin to understand that nothing is easy in Jake’s life. He has a propensity for getting into trouble without even trying, and all of this adds up to a riveting read.

My only regret is not having read the first in series before beginning this one, but I shall certainly add it to my wish list. This is a tremendously detailed story – with the kind of information than only someone who has been on the inside of similar investigations could produce. I revelled in every page, and have no hesitation in recommending it as an outstanding read.

My grateful thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of this novel. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
