Synopsis ~

How far would you go if someone took your wife? Especially, if you buried her a week ago. When Jason Wells is faced with this scenario, he is confronted with the prospect of committing a crime that will have far-reaching consequences. Can young DC Sally Poynter get through to him before he crosses that line, or does a desperate husband prove to be the case she won’t ever forget? A prequel novella, set before Shallow Waters, the first in the DI Hannah Robbins series.

For fans of James Patterson's Book Shots

Often I'm put off reading novella's as I think, after looking at the synopsis, how can a book cover so much content effectively and manage to hold your interest in so few pages. Well I needn't have worried about this one. It really did hold my attention.

The plot surrounds the crime of body-snatching, something you don't really hear about, but it's also about so much more than that! It's set in a modern police arena, although you wouldn't think so with the attitude of a male police officer towards his female colleague DC Sally Poynter. That's more like something out of the 1970's. Pure male chauvinism. He showed so much disdain towards Sally. She could hold her own though. She's a great character.

I loved how the author built the various different relationships within the Police Force, and forged the trusting relationship between DC Poynter and the main suspect Jason Wells.

There is so much packed into the Novella and it is a great plot. Perfect for a quick read in one sitting, with a good twist at the end.

I live in Nottinghamshire with my family and two Cockapoos Alfie and Lola, who keep me company while I write. I need to drink copious amounts of tea to function throughout the day and if I could, I would survive on a diet of tea and cake while committing murder on a regular basis.
After 16 years service, I was recently medically retired from the police service where I finished as a detective constable on a specialist unit.
My first crime novel, Shallow Waters is set in Nottingham. The lead protagonist is DI Hannah Robbins. Because the novel is written in first-person narrative you get a pretty good feel for who she is.

Rebecca's second novel in the series is Made to Be Broken.
