How far would you go?
The murder of a promising footballer, son of Brighton’s highest-ranking police officer, means Detective Superintendent Jo Howe has a complicated and sensitive case on her hands. The situation becomes yet more desperate following devastating blackmail threats.
Howe can trust no one as she tracks the brutal killer in a city balanced on a knife edge of vigilante action and a police force riven with corruption.
Very Exciting & Terrifically Thrilling!
Wow! Here’s a novel all about crime and it’s results – and it is thrilling to the very last!
The murder of a promising young footballer is bad enough, but when he’s the son of the highest ranking police officer in Brighton, Superintendent Jo Howe has her work cut out. Little does she know this is only the tip of the iceberg . . .
I can honestly say I never saw what was coming with this one; it is action packed from beginning to end and I was enthralled and gobsmacked in equal measure all the way through. Bad for Good is a very exciting read! There were times when I wasn’t sure if I loved or loathed Jo Howe but, no spoilers – I’ll let you decide for yourself. I would love this to turn into a series but whether it does or not, one thing is for sure – I shall be following Graham Bartlett’s novels from here on in. He not only knows his stuff, he knows how to create a tip-top read which will leave the reader guessing until the last when they can close the book with a sigh of satisfaction. Highly recommended and a full five sparkling stars!
My thanks to the publisher for my copy and to Helen Richardson for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
