Synopses & Reviews
Unconventional Detective Inspector Liam McLusky is plunged into a major murder investigation in this gritty police procedural series.
On his first day back at work following his suspension, DI McLusky finds himself in the midst of a major murder enquiry when a body is discovered in the canal at Netham Lock. Chained, weighted down, tied to a buoy by the neck, it has all the hallmarks of a premeditated, ritualistic killing. As he questions those who knew the victim in an attempt to uncover the dead woman's secrets, McLusky's investigations are disrupted by the discovery of a second body. Bound and gagged like the first - but there are differences.
If McLusky could only work out what connects the victims, he would be one step closer to catching the killer - and preventing more deaths.
Meanwhile, his rival DI Kat Fairfield is pursuing a routine investigation which takes a decidedly sinister turn ...
"The McLusky series manages to be both hilarious and dead serious, adding yet another string to Helton's impressive bow" Kirkus Reviews
"This could be a long-running series, if the author can keep up this level of excellence" Booklist
