No fingerprints. No weapon. No witnesses. Can DS Cross prove it was murder?
DS George Cross can be rude, difficult, and awkward with people. But his unfailing logic and dogged pursuit of the truth means his conviction rate is the best on the force. Now, this unusual detective is met with an even more unusual case.
When a young woman is found dead, the Bristol Crime Unit is quick to rule it a suicide: the woman had a long history of drug abuse. But her mother is convinced it was murder: her daughter had been clean for years and making strides in a new therapy programme.
As an outsider himself, DS Cross is drawn to cases involving the voiceless and the dispossessed. He is determined to defy his bosses and re-open the investigation, even if it costs him his career. Soon he is mired in a labyrinth of potential suspects, but can he solve the case before his superiors shut it down for good?
Even though this is book three in the DS Cross thriller series, they can be read as a stand alone but I will be reading the other ones. This one was brilliant and I really enjoyed it. It was full of suspense and intrigue that kept me on the edge of my seat. I didn’t know what was going to happen throughout the story and the ending surprised me. I found DS Cross a unique and interesting character who I didn’t warm to straight away but can see what a good detective he is. A great story to get involved in and I look forward to reading all of the other books in this series.
I received a ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
