And guess who the detectives’ new boss is? The incredibly difficult Stephen Greco.

IN AN ENDING WITH A MASSIVE TWIST, THE DETECTIVES FIND EVERYTHING THEY BELIEVED IS WRONG.


My Review

Another brilliant addition to the Calladine and Bayliss series by Helen Durrant.

Following the shocks of the previous book Calladine is acting DCI but it isn’t for him he is an out and about detective and he soon realises that sitting behind a pile of paperwork is not what he signed up for so he withdraws his interest for the position.  When the new DCI turns up they find it is none other than the infamous Greco, a disgraced detective from another division, one with many quirks and a cleanliness fetish but worse than that a man Calladine doesn’t like.  Can the pair put aside their differing personalities and work together as a team?

That isn’t the only problem Calladine has to deal with there are many more,  a pregnant daughter and all the issues that brings and in addition a man who threatened him when he put him away years ago is out on parole and seems to be bang smack in the middle of his case.  But all is not what it seems and Calladine and his team have many leads to untangle before they find the way forward.

Another fabulously gripping page-turner from Helen Durrant as we learn more about the characters and their lives as they try to stop the evil that lives among us.

A well deserved 5 stars from me.
