it was amazing

Fast-paced, gritty and spellbound. This crime thriller/ police procedural is difficult to put down. Written by Mark Sexton, a former police officer, sheds light on police and the tiring work they do.

Mark ease readers gently to the story’s themes, we see protagonist PC Patrick going about his duties, which largely revolve around pandering to the city’s takers, who cost the government a small fortune in state benefits.

When they start to die, Pat—a vocal opponent of scroungers and their self-entitled mindset—is the name in the frame for their downfall. Strongly suspecting that a new colleague, PC Kyle Aston, is behind the deaths, Pat comes under fire from his own force, is arrested and placed in custody. But before the police have the chance to further deprive him of his liberty, he flees, devising a plan to clear his name and gain evidence to send the guilty party down.

What follows is a battle of wits, as mysterious men in dark vans pursue him and his family. And as Pat draws ever closer to revealing the truth about what’s really going on, an altogether different, far more shocking truth emerges that threatens the very fabric of society.

I recommend this book to fans of Idris Elba’s Luther or Sherlock Holmes. It's a Goodread!😁😁
