Death And Deception by B. A. Steadman


Book Description:

Detective Inspector Dan Hellier returns home to Exeter under a cloud.

The body of a talented young singer is found in the woods.

Hellier needs to redeem himself and solve the murder.

What links her death to the boss of a recording studio, a Latvian gang and a school music teacher?

Before the body count rises Hellier will need to untangle the web of Death and Deception. And the clock is ticking …

This is the first Detective Dan Hellier novel.

If you like Angela Marsons, Helen Durrant, Rachel Abbott, Adam Croft or Mark Billingham you will be gripped by this excellent new crime fiction writer.

My Thoughts:

Death And Deception is the first book in the Detective Hellier series.

This book is a great start to a new crime series.

I don’t think Dan Hellier as well as the rest of his work colleagues realised what surprises they were in store for when they start investigating the death of a teenage girl.

The author takes the reader on a dark journey up a very twisted road.

I thought to start with the story would just be a straight forward ‘who dunnit’. Well how wrong I was. The murder is not the only crime that the investigators discover and to be honest what they stumble across is even more horrific than what happened to the talented young singer.

The characters in this story, I took to quite quickly. They really grabbed my interest and I wanted to learn more about them. I was just as interested in the suspects lives as I was with the ones in the police force as they all intrigued me.

The author has created a compelling read that had me hooked from start to finish. Can’t wait for the next one.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.

Death And Deception is available to purchase from Amazon.
