Chris Matheson was a pretty decent man. Feels churlish to be so negative. I've muttered before about the lone cop - usually of about Inspector level - who has serious personal problems and who, against all the odds, against the specific instructions of his superiors, goes out there and solves a major crime all on his own and then survives to do it all again in the next book in the series. If this debut is anything to go by, the world is one very talented mystery author richer. The other thing I really appreciated was the fact that although the main character had suffered traumatically in her childhood, she was not being portrayed as the stereotypical troubled sufferer.

Ireland I'm Lisa, I'm a mum of three, a wife of one, a writer, a reader and a history fanatic. A young girl's mutilated body is discovered in a sealed room. I bought the book nearly three years ago just after it was published and it got buried on my Kindle. Once reunited with my notebook, I followed the search team to the front door.
The only thing I don't quite get is the relationship between Nina and her boy-friend. The comradery and the way the characters interact with each other, it feels so real, it could be in any workforce. Lisa Cutts has created a wonderful protagonist who is extremely likeable. Nina and her colleagues are working long hours to try and process all the information they are receiving and interview many people connected with the deceased. So many to enjoy but the one where she goes to visit Stan was a choker, Very touching, Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? At times, it became confusing to keep up with the different relationships. Doubt you and I will get a look in. When I finished it, I bought book 2 straightaway.
This is the first novel in a new series. Fortunately, Wingsy and I were a bit quicker and fitter than him. Nina now comes across as self obsessed, selfish and. A peeping Tom is frightening the women of Eastvale. An original piece of crime fiction with an edge of realness that makes it stand out from others in its genre.
But the cold case she's working on — an infamous train crash from 1964 — is no match for the lure of the shootings, drugs deaths and robberies keeping her colleagues busy.

A woman at home in Liverpool is disturbed by a persistent tapping at her back door. In 1841, Solomon Northup was captured and forced into slavery for a period of twelve years. I had never worked out if he knew the reason or if he thought I just had high blood pressure. As with the last novel there is an air of mystery and plenty of twists and turns along the way, I felt the writing flowed better than the first novel, Lisa definitely seemed to find her writing style and I found myself turning the pages at a rapid rate. It was just… easy being with him. It was followed by shouting and heavy footsteps, lots of pairs of feet, on the stairs.
