DCI Kirsty Savidge leads Major Crimes Task Force team when called to investigate the murder of Avril Webb. Webb was a mean bully in high school (25 years ago). Two others from that gang have already been killed.

No one has tied these 3 deaths together, and Savidge is going to have to convince her superior that they've all been killed by the same person.. a serial killer.

And then there's another death ....

Who is doing the killing? Another member of the gang? A victim of their school bullying?

This is a very gripping book on many levels. If you like detective books then you will love this one it gets into the nitty gritty of detective where there are no clues and the only way to make any progress is to keep trawling through paperwork looking for anything that may have been missed. This makes for a very interesting book. It may not be as fast paced at some but certainly kept the pages turning as I became totally engrossed in the story.

The balance of description and investigation is per

Kirsty Savidge, and her team are tasked with investigating the brutal murder of Avril Webb. The killer is forensically aware and leaves behind no clues.

During the investigation more deaths come to light but they seem to be accidents. Kirsty convinced there’s a connection tries to link the cases together. Can Kirsty stop the killer before they claim any more victims?

This was a solid police procedural that really focused on the process of a murder investigation.
I really liked Kirsty. She’s cleve

This is the first book I have read by Pat Adams-Wright, believe me, it will not be the last! I enjoyed it as it is a story about good old fashioned police grunt work, as it is called! No obvious clues but shuffling paperwork gets the strands they need to pull together the case. It is basically a revenge tale all the way from school, shows what effect bullying can have at times. I will not let any details go, read it to discover the tale skillfully woven together by Pat! Kept me reading well into ...more

This is the first novel by Pat Adams-Wright that I have read and I will definitely be looking for more from this author. The main characters are DCI Kirsty Savidge and her Sergeant Danny Hewitt who are supervised by Superintendent Alison Fry. It is obvious that there is a history between Kirsty and Alison but we are only given clues to it so I am looking for more about them in future books. A woman, Avril Webb, is murdered in her own garage and we learn that Avril had been a bully at school, 25 ...more

What an excellent book! Set in and around the Yorkshire town of Halifax Savidge and her team are faced with a series of gruesome murders - could they be linked?
This book was fast paced and gripping while at the same time allowed character development and some beautiful descriptive writing too. I’m very excited at the prospect of this becoming a series too.

Pat Adams-Wright was born in Halifax, West Yorkshire, UK, on the 15th October 1954, in Wellesley Barracks, to a sergeant major father and a working mother. Teacher trained in Liverpool, she actually taught very little during the austere period for practical subjects, doing any work she could find to keep the wolf from the door. However, this did provide plenty of experience and writing material. F ...more
