Linda Strong Book Reviews

Another excellent addition to an excellent series! Well written and action packed, it can be read easily as a stand alone. But I highly recommend starting at the beginning.   Read more here


Joanna Larum’s Reviews

All of these strands are interwoven with consummate skill, making page-turning an absolute must and forcing the reader to give up on sleeping or eating until the conclusion is reached.  Read more here


On the Shelf Reviews

This was such an absorbing, fast paced read. With the kidnapping of Calladine and the brutal killer on the loose story lines, I just could not stop turning those pages!   Read more here


Ginger Book Geek

Oh my where do I start with this book?  I don’t mean that in a bad way but in a good way.  There were several story strands to this book that were equally as good as each other and it would be wrong to just pick out one.  In case you hadn’t guessed I absolutely flipping, totally and utterly loved reading this book but more about that in a bit.  Read more here


Donna’s Book Blog

It has a brilliant story, it has the characters that I love and the writing style was superb as always. I loved the pace and it had me gripped from the first page to the last – so, so good – so as you can probably guess, yes it is 5 stars from me – I loved it!!  Read more here


J.V. Baptie

The novel is very pacey and there are several story strands to follow and each one opens up a host of questions, this is exactly how I like a book to be.  It’s hard to write this review without giving too much away but the characters face some interesting personal turmoil which also makes for good reading and there is a good balance of light and dark moments.  Read more here

Mystery Thriller Week

Writing crime fiction takes a bit of skill and creativity, amongst other things, for the desired result. Dead Bad even though it’s a short read, has all those elements. Check out this series!  Read more here


Black Books Blog

This story  is a brilliant one as we learn a lot more about Bayliss and her life, including some possible decisions she has to make, which could affect everyone around her. The book has so much going on that at times it is hard to remember what has happened, but with so much happening you never lose interest and just as you think you have it sorted something comes up which throws you again.  Read more here

Looking for a brilliant best-selling crime mystery with great detectives?

Detective Calladine and Bayliss face a vicious serial killer in a mystery with a shocking ending.

A woman’s body is found in a disused church, a homemade stuffed toy by her side. The victim had been dumped there months ago. The crime has the hallmarks of twenty-year-old case whose alleged perpetrator is in prison.

Detective Ruth Bayliss must work out whether a serial killer has returned, or whether a new killer is just taunting the police.

Her partner DI Tom Calladine faces the fight of his life to clear his name of corruption accusations. And then things go from bad to worse for Calladine . . .

With the team under massive pressure and drugs flooding the streets, another gruesomely presented body is found.

In an ending with a huge twist, the detectives must unpick decades’ old lies before anyone else dies.

If you like Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott, Mel Sherratt, Ruth Rendell, or Mark Billingham you will enjoy this exciting new crime fiction writer.

DEAD BAD is book eight of a new series of detective thrillers featuring D.S. Ruth Bayliss and D.I. Tom Calladine.

THE DETECTIVES
Tom Calladine is a detective inspector who is devoted to his job. His personal life, however, is not so successful. Having been married and divorced before the age of twenty-one has set a pattern that he finds difficult to escape.

Ruth Bayliss is in her mid-thirties, plain-speaking but loyal. She is balancing her professional life with looking after a small child.

THE SETTING
The fictional village of Leesdon on the outskirts of an industrial northern English city. There is little work and a lot of crime. The bane of Calladine’s life is the Hobfield housing estate, breeding ground to all that is wrong with the area that he calls home.
