Detective Inspector Lorne Simpkins is back on the force. Before she can get comfortable with her new partner, newly-promoted DS Katy Foster, the two are assigned a tragic murder case that looks like a robbery gone wrong. However, when another wealthy footballer’s family meets the same deadly fate within twenty-four hours, it is clear the crimes involve something far more sinister.
Keeping her focus on unravelling the complex case isn’t easy for Lorne when she learns news that throws her personal life into a spin—her fiancé, M16 agent Tony Warner, is involved in a dangerous covert operation in Afghanistan.
But innocent people are dying on her patch, and someone must catch the killers. Lorne can’t allow this Foul Justice to prevail.
Foul Justice is the fourth book in the DI Lorne Simpkins series.
This book sees Lorne returning back to work after having a two year break. Her first case back is to find the criminals behind an horrific robbery where two young children were brutally murdered. Not only does she have her work cut out with a challenging case she has the added worry of Tony, the man in her life, being sent on a dangerous mission. To top it all off she also has a new partner at work, Katy, who to start with Lorne struggles to warm to.
The first chapter had me hooked straight away and I devoured Foul Justice in one afternoon. The author doesn’t hold any punches with this book, from the very first chapter all the way through and by the end I felt I’d done a round with Rocky Balboa. She certainly knows how to shock and thrill her readers.
To start with I didn’t really like Katy, Lorne’s new partner but it wasn’t long before I started to change my mind. I enjoyed seeing their partnership grow into them becoming friends and I look forward to reading more of this relationship through out the course of the series.
Though it is quite a happy ending for Lorne and Tony in this book, due to certain events it did leave me wondering what the future holds for the loved up couple and what the future has in store for them.
Another great book in the series and can’t wait to read the next one.
I have awarded this book 5/5 stars.
