I am super excited to be able to share with you today an exclusive cover reveal for the 8th book in the fabulous DI Dylan series, When A Killer Strikes. When A Killer Strikes is out on the 19th of October and I for one can not wait! So without further ado, here it is! 



Isn’t it fabulous? Anyone who knows this series will see how it ties in perfectly with the other books in this must read crime series.

Want to know more about it? Well here you go.

Book Description:

“Boss, we’ve got a body”.
Hardly what Detective Inspector Jack Dylan needs to hear on his
day off, especially as he’s in the middle of house-hunting with his
wife Jen.
Detective Sergeant Vicky Hardacre greets him at the scene, but
what awaits them behind the blood red door of Colonial House is
undoubtedly a murder. The approach identifies several prime
suspects. But who is telling the truth; and who is lying?
Before the killer can be caught, another body is discovered, this time
in a putrefying mixture of mud and slime, lain amongst the remnants
of decaying food within a waste-bin shelter. Now it’s the task of the
man in charge to make the call.
Are the two murders connected?
There’s only one way to find out, and that’s by working long hours,
within strict budgets, and the usual pressure from above to obtain
quick results.
However, Dylan is distracted by personal matters, with Jen being
keen to seal the deal on a renovation project. He suggests they delay
finalising the purchase; until he discovers the significance of the
house, and that it’s about to be demolished.
In his absence, Jen’s pleas for help from his estranged siblings are
answered, resulting in hidden secrets coming to light, as Dylan
continues, through a twisting and turning plot, to ensure justice is
done in respect of the murder victims, whose bright hopes for the
future were cruelly snatched away.
And here’s the wonderful authors behind the series. For anyone in or around the Halifax area, Bob and Carol will be doing a talk at the new Central Library in Halifax at 6.30pm on publishing day the 19th of October.

The D.I. Dylan series of books by RC Bridgestock (Husband and wife writing team, Bob and Carol Bridgestock) comes from a unique perspective of a collective real life experience of high level policing of 47 years. As a career detective Bob Bridgestock worked in the CID at every rank. For over half of his service he was a senior detective, retiring at the rank of Detective Superintendent of the West Yorkshire Police force.

As a Senior Investigative Officer (SIO) in charge of homicide cases he took command of some twenty-six murder investigations, twenty-three major incidents including shootings and attempted murders and over fifty suspicious deaths and numerous sexual assaults, some of which were extremely high profile in his last three years alone.

Bob brings this unique insight and experience from how real life cases are conducted into page turning gripping fiction, aided by his wife Carol, who has 17 years working within the force. Carol brings her understanding and the experience of a partner of a frontline detective to the D.I. Dylan series. This combination adds authenticity rarely seen in British crime fiction, coupled with warmth, humour and humanity.

RC Bridgestock are story advisors for BBC’s hit crime drama, Happy Valley and ITV’s award winning Scott & Bailey. They will be featured on the CBS Reality series Written in Blood.
