RC Bridgestock (Bob and Carol Bridgestock) are story consultants on BBC’s hit drama Happy Valley and ITV’s award winning Scott & Bailey.
From the writers of Deadly Focus, Consequences, White Lilies and Snow Kills comes the latest D.I. Dylan thriller, Reprobates.
A burglary at Harrowfield mortuary. The body of 30 year old Kirsty Gallagher is missing.
Nearby, uniform police are searching the canal along with a small diving squad, following the discovery of some clothes by the bank side. The body of a naked man is hoisted from the murky depths. His ankles are tied by a piece of rope connected to concrete.
Kirsty’s decomposing corpse is eventually found and an arrest is made which leads to a network of men whom D.I Dylan can only describe as reprobates.
|Jack and his team are back and boy do they have some very strange cases to solve.
What I love about this series is that the authors manage to shock us in each book with the varied crimes that the team are working on. I have to admit the set of crimes committed in Reprobates, whilst baffling and shocking, didn’t hit me quite as hard as the crimes in the previous novels but then that is real life, some crimes will always hit us harder than others, especially the ones that involve abuse or children.
All the cases seem to be isolated incidents and I love how through the great work, not just by Jack and his team, but also by Vicky in her new role, start to put all the pieces together and work out the connections of all three cases.
Jack and Jen are great characters which give the readers a glimpse of what it is like to be in the job as well as married to someone in it. It explores the relationships within both and it certainly makes for some great reading.
Yet another highly enjoyable novel that has left me very much eager to read the next one.
My thanks to the authors for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
