Tell no lies


Book Blurb: Now they’re coming after Caelan’s team…

A tortured body is found in a basement. Drug dealing and people smuggling is on the rise. Then police start going missing.

There seems to be no connection between the crimes, but Detective Caelan Small senses something isn’t right.

Plunged into a new investigation, lives are on the line. And in the web of gangs, brothels and nerve-shattering undercover work, Caelan must get to the truth – or be killed trying.

And then there’s Nicky...

Utterly gripping, written with searing tension and remarkable dexterity, Tell No Lies is a blistering crime novel for fans of Angela Marsons, Rebecca Bradley and Faith Martin.

My Review

A gritty crime novel set in London that deals with people smuggling, drug dealing and some pretty nasty characters, yet never resorts to being gruesome. It is the second book in the series and whilst I wish I'd read the earlier book, it stands well on its own. I was pleased that there wasn't an enormous amount of backfilling in this book either. It was a bit like a jigsaw, filling in the pieces as to what happened to Nicky in the last book, but quite enjoyable nonetheless. I did feel that the story was overly long in parts and would have benefitted from some judicial pruning but that's probably just me. That said, it is well written and I now want to read the first book in the series.
