End of the Line is book four in the Porter & Styles detective series. I haven’t read the first three books, but I will be rectifying that as soon as I’m able to. The opening of the book gives the reader a glimpse into what they can expect and that is adrenaline. Its everything that I would expect to experience as a police officer serving the Metropolitan area. There’s spice, a huge dollop of action and all surrounded by the humanity of humankind. Robert Scragg certainly knows how to write people ...more

Influencers are a new fact of life. Some are concerned with what to buy, wear, eat or drink to lead the perfect life, others, not so much. Ross Henderson, also known as Stormcloudz, had influence, but was more of a gamer and political animal, who rallied against the far right and wanted equality for all. His last vlog however, resulted in his murder being broadcast live to his ten million plus followers.

Detective Inspector Jake Porter’s world has just been rocked; his boss telling him how, afte

This is the fourth book in the Porter & Styles series of books and, as such, usual series rules apply. You don't need me to spell them out. They are all cracking reads so, well, why not!?
We reconnect with our duo when a rather nasty facebook live goes out. It features what they call an "influencer" this one calling himself Stormcloudz and, well, basically, live broadcasts his death. Well, his murder, beheading. To his somewhat millions of fans.
If this wasn't enough to contend with, Porter's wor

I would like to thank Netgalley and Allison & Busby for an advance copy of End of the Line, the fourth novel to feature DI Jake Porter and DS Nick Styles of The Met.

Porter is stunned when he is told of a development in the investigation into the murder of his wife, Holly, four years ago. He is not allowed to investigate it and instead is tasked with investigating the brutal murder of vlogger Ross Henderson, which took place live on air as he was streaming his report into far right extremism.

This is the first book i read in this series and won’t surely be the last as I inhaled.
A gripping, fast paced and action packed story that kept me on the edge till the last page as it’s full of twists and turns.
I love detective team: Porter and Tyler are two interesting and well thought character and I liked their friendship and the sense of mutual trust. Porter is still grieving the death of this wife but we se him changing and maybe finding a way to heal. Styler is well thought and I like him.

A couple of months ago, I discovered the Porter & Styles series when I got my hands on a copy of All That is Buried (one of my top 10 books of 2020!). I was thrilled to read an advance copy of Robert's latest installment in the series: End of the Line. A huge thank you to NetGalley and the author for giving me the chance to read this before publication! You know when you open up a book and you can tell from the first chapter that it's going to be a brilliant read? This is one of those books!

End of the Line is the fourth book in the Porter and Styles detective series and the first one I’ve read. However, I’ve since realised I have the first, Between the Cracks on my Kindle, so will be reading that next! Whilst I prefer to read a series in order, End of the Line also works well as a stand alone.
This pacey, intricately plotted and topical thriller is a very gripping and enjoyable read. In DI Jake Porter and DS Nick Styles, the author has created believable, strong and likeable charact

This is a very well written book, the fourth to feature detectives Porter and Styles of the Met police. The plot is very imaginative and filled with twists as DI Porter is still investigating his wife's killer. There is plenty tension and action from the first chapter, a great ending and it can be read as a stand alone. A very enjoyable read which I would recommend. Thanks to Net Galley for my ARC. ...more

A well written crime novel that works well as a standalone read. Porter is known to be a somewhat rogue cop but seems pretty decent to me.
A difficult, politically motivated crime faces him and the team

This book is straight into the action and I couldn't put it down
