The first gripping book in The Organised Crime Team series by NY Times bestselling author of the Justice series, M A Comley and co-author Tara Lyons, author of In The Shadows.
When The Caller rings… what would you do?
The Organised Crime Team is a newly-formed unit with one of the toughest tasks in London. Led by DI Angie North, their first investigation is a cold case that has foxed several officers in the Met for months.
After Angie holds a TV appeal regarding the case, a number of similar aggressive attacks are brought to her attention. The team call on their contacts on the street for help. Their interest is sparked when several local names surface.
To bring the criminals to justice a member of the Organised Crime Team is asked to risk their life in a dangerous covert operation.
The Caller is the first book in a brand new crime series following The Organised Crime Team.
The authors have spent a bit of time allowing the reader to get to know the characters in the team so that we have a bit of background for each of the characters. It is a great introduction to the characters and I very much look forward to what the future holds for them all.
I really enjoyed the story line and how the criminals go about getting into peoples houses as the whole thing is more than plausible and also very scary. It certainly will make me more wary in future.
The attacks on the female home owners are extremely brutal and probably not for the more faint hearted of readers. My heart really went out to the victims and I couldn’t wait for the team to realise who was behind it all and catch them.
There are quite a few characters in the team, which some stand out more than others, though I’m sure as the series progresses they will all take their turn at being more in the limelight as they all play different roles within the team and specialise in different areas.
Angie is a great team leader, though seems to take risks that maybe she shouldn’t. I have a feeling that things will never be boring with her in charge!
The Caller is a good and solid starting point for what looks set to being a very promising new crime series. It certainly makes for a tense read that increases in speed the further into the novel you get. I certainly can’t wait to see what other cases the team get to work on and look forward to being able to follow their journey.
Many thanks to the authors for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
