Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Introducing Birmingham Detective Sergeant Kate Power, exiled from London's Metropolitan Police by personal tragedy and making a new start in the distant outpost of Birmingham CID. Her new Brummie bosses are good men, for the most part, but they can't seem to let their new female colleague alone long enough to get on with her job. Kate is anxious to lose herself in her work, and before too long a case comes along that will consume her in a way she could never have imagined.

Young boys are being abducted, abused, and murdered on her patch, and she feels intense personal and professional pressure to catch those responsible. Kate must navigate the unfamiliar channels of power in male-dominated Birmingham; are her colleagues being deliberately obstructive or simply dragging their feet? Soon she is forced to make an important decision: Should she follow the conventional line of enquiry, toe the company line, and work as part of the team, or should she strike out on her own, reputation be damned?

Kate's got her work cut out for her, but she's a tough young cop who's seen a lot in her brief career and no one, not a heavy-handed supervisor or a vicious killer, is going to stop her from surviving, and thriving, in Birmingham. Power on Her Own is a taut, gritty cop novel from talented crime writer Judith Cutler.

Synopsis:

Birmingham DS Kate Power was recently exiled from her home office in London by personal tragedy and is making a new start in the distant outpost of Birmingham CID. Her new Brummie bosses can't seem to let their lone female colleague alone long enough to do her job.

Young boys are being abducted, abused, and murdered on her patch, and she feels intense personal and professional pressure to solve the case.

Kate must navigate the unfamiliar channels of power in male-dominated Birmingham and make a crucial decision: should she follow the conventional line of enquiry, relying on her chauvinist colleagues, or should she strike out on her own, reputation be damned? She soon decides that no one, not a heavy-handed supervisor or a vicious killer, is going to stop her from surviving, and thriving, in Birmingham in this taut, absorbing cop novel from Judith Cutler.
