Recently promoted to Detective Sergeant, Nasreen Maqsood is given the case of a brutalised body found dead in a car park.
When they discover the victim was dragged around the car park by a pick-up truck and the killer recorded the murder, Nasreen realises she has her work cut out. She also has a new partner, Alicia Weekes, and the two detectives don’t get on.
When the victim is identified, the case takes an interesting turn but when a second murder takes place, it sends them down a different track.
Can Nasreen and Weekes put their differences aside, and work together to stop a vicious killer with a sinister agenda before they strike again?
Thrilling, Exciting & Gripping!
If you like to get your teeth into a gritty crime thriller which keeps you guessing all the way through – this is it!
Newly promoted Sergeant Nasreen Masqood lands the case of a brutal murder at the same time as she lands a new partner. Alicia Weekes, and the animosity is palpable. When another murder follows the first which muddies the water for where they thought it all pointed, can the put aside their differences and work together to find the guilty party?
Yet again, I’ve found myself unable to resist a book mid-series but I’ll happily return to the first two purely based on this one being such a great read! The violent murders didn’t bother me overly much (I’m so squeamish!) as the investigation demanded my attention. The dynamic between the two detectives is fascinating and most definitely added another layer to this enigmatic read. There is always something happening, making it a very hard book to put down – I read way beyond the time I should have been in the land of nod! Thrilling, exciting, gripping and left me desperate to read more from this author. A novel which easily earns a full house of stars and a firm recommendation.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.

D C Brockwell lives in Burgess Hill, West Sussex, with his wife, Beks and rescue cat, Olivia. He works as a dental technician for Elite Dental Studios in the day, and writes crime/horror/action and adventure/romance stories in the evenings and weekends. After completing his dental technicians’ course at Lambeth College in March 2018, he sat down and started taking his writing more seriously, completing five first drafts of novels in a year.
A graduate of criminology and criminal justice studies at the University of Portsmouth, he has always had an interest in crime, specifically abnormal psychology. It was while studying criminology that he penned his first (unpublished) novel, which, he says, will never see the light of day.
He self-published his first romance novel, The Southern Belles in July 2019, under his pseudonym, Katie Simpkins, a name both he and Beks chose together.
His first crime novel is a contemporary and gritty crime drama.
