No one is safe… not even the police.
DI Hero Nelson is used to violent crime but this one is personal. When he’s called to a crime scene he discovers the victims are two police officers one of whom is a good friend.
Determined to track down the killer, he’s dealt another blow as the body count continues to rise. To catch the killer before he strikes again, Hero calls upon the public for help. But when the criminal ups the ante by taking hostages, he soon regrets his actions.
Can Hero and the police catch the murderer before more innocent victims are hurt?
Hero must apprehend a killer who is hiding in plain sight before the time runs out.
In Plain Sight is the third novel in the Hero crime series. It works very well as a stand alone though I would like to get to know Hero better and will be getting the others in the series to read.
Hero is such a great name and I couldn’t think of a better named person being a DI. Certainly solving crimes in a way makes him just that, a hero. He does have a good team that work along side him so to be fair it is very much a team effort.
A story line with police officers being killed while on duty was certainly a harrowing one. I have to admit that this is one part of working in the police force I would absolutely hate, having to inform a loved one of a death. I really couldn’t think of anything worse and my heart was breaking along with the officers families. Also we forget about the big impact their deaths have on their colleagues and this is shown in the story.
In Plain Sight is without a doubt a gripping read with characters that really care about their job and the victims of the crimes. It’s one that can easily be devoured in one sitting and will have you wanting more.
My thanks to Bloodhound Books for an advanced copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
