A gang of car thieves breaks into homes in the dead of night and threatening the homeowners to give up their keys to their high end (read: expensive), cars, they then drive off with the cars. But this last attack ended up with the man of the house in the hospital with several broken bones and other injuries. Things are now getting very serious.

DI Angus Henderson, DS Carol Walters and the rest of the team are tasked with catching the thieves. The level of violence used against the owners

This was an interesting read – the plot was certainly very well devised and there were so many twists and turns, in places it was hard to keep up. It was one of those books where the opening chapter seems totally unrelated to the rest of the novel but deep down inside you know it will all come together, and naturally it did. So far, having read Iain Cameron’s first DI Henderson novel, I am still finding it hard to warm to the character – he does not seem to have much charm but I am ever hopeful ...more

I enjoyed the first book in the Angus Henderson collection, but I found this second offering to be too convoluted and over descriptive.
As I read the story, is was as though the author was unsure of how he was going to continue the required number of words and so just made up more stories as he went along. The book is a little disjointed and ungainly, and right towards the end of the book, we are introduced to yet another character who only gets a brief mention earlier in the book,

Deja vu. I live here!

Have read thousands of books in my lifetime, but this series is the first in which i know every location. Have driven down the roads & currently live in one of the mid sussex towns mentioned.
So i congratulate the author for his 'feel' for this area, it makes appreciate my county even more.
This book is very well written, with plenty of twists & turns _ like the roads in this area.

Another great police procedural with DI Henderson and his team! Car thieves and murder keep the team very busy with extensive investigation, lies, misdirection, and confusion. This is an intricate, exciting adventure with an unusual finale!

It was ok but normally books like this I have to like the main characters and honestly I didn't with any of them. However the story was good and I did read it through to the end. It wasn't into the last half of the book I really got into it though.

Enjoyable sequel

I'm enjoying these modern detective novels following the cases of DI Angus Henderson. Car thefts, murder, corrupt businessman keep you enthralled to the end. Looking forward to the next installment.

Seemed very long and involved. Lots of different characters so had to keep tabs on who's who!!
Some parts seemed to get solved very quickly whilst the main story got frustratingly bogged down.
Well put together and I'll probably read the third book when it comes out.

3.5 Stars. I thought the plot of this book was reasonably good. However, we haven't learned much about the private lives of the police characters and Angus Henderson's girlfriend in particular seems to be MIA. This book had a few typos and a rather abrupt ending that left some loose ends. ...more

Good book

Except for the last 50 pages. It was like another writer finished the book. Quite a disconnect in style from the rest of the book.

Quite the ride, no pun intended

It's a good read. Although, the end left me a bit confused. I really enjoyed , on the whole.

I will continue to read the rest of the series.
