Off-Duty Police Sergeant Jason Knight from Bolton police station has disappeared whilst cycling in the Lancashire countryside. His wife raised the alarm. Jason is not the kind of man who would go missing. Something is very clearly wrong. The disappearance quickly becomes a full-scale alert, and counter-terror police are on standby, monitoring the situation extremely closely.
DCI Andrew Miller is drafted in urgently to try and figure out what the hell is going on, and why Knight might suddenly disappear. It’s a race against time to find the popular, well respected Sergeant.
Meanwhile, the local press are calling for Miller’s resignation following the infamous “Neighbours From Hell” trial, and newspaper revelations that suggest Miller could be responsible for an apparent miscarriage of justice.
If Andy Miller thought that he already had enough on his plate – he’s about to discover that there’s plenty of room for more, in this fast-paced, gritty thriller set in Manchester and The Trough of Bowland, in the heart of Lancashire.
This is the third book in the DCI Miller series. I have to say I was very much looking forward to reading this one as I was dying for more information on some of the characters that appeared in the brilliant Neighbour’s From Hell which is the second book in the series. The thread to do with that story line was quite low key sadly and I have to admit I would have liked to have read more.
The main story line to do with sergeant Jason Knight made for some riveting reading. I was as concerned as much about his disappearance as his colleagues and family were. I couldn’t understand why or how someone of that status could just disappear. When all becomes clear why though, all I can say is what an eye opener it is and it was way better than I could ever have imagined.
What I love about this series is that even though it follows DCI Miller, for me he feels like he is more in the background so that we can fully get into the case that he is working on and the characters involved. It makes this crime series more unique to others in the same genre and it certainly gets the reader fully wrapped up in what is going on.
Road To Nowhere is yet another highly enjoyable and gripping read. The author never seems to fail in shocking and surprising me. Highly recommend these books if you are looking for a series that stands out from the crowd as well as being entertaining.
Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
