Where do you turn when you can’t trust the police?
Detective Inspector Hannah Robbins is called out to the murder of Simon Talbot. Local gang leader who only the day before was released from court a free man, found not guilty of the murder of police officer, Ken Blake.
Now, he has a bullet in his head.
And witness details on his person.

But as Hannah delves deeper into the past, she begins to question the integrity of the whole operation.
Could the killer be closer to home than anyone would like?
Fighting Monsters is the third book in the DI Hannah Robbins crime series. I personally would advise reading the books in order to get the most out of the series as a lot of events that have happened in the previous books are mentioned in the others.
This has been a series so far where as soon as I’ve finished one book, I’ve very much been looking forward to the next one in the series. I really enjoy Hannah’s character and how her and the team work together in solving the cases. It certainly isn’t all plain sailing. Not when there’s a new member for them to get used to.
The story certainly takes some surprising twists and turns and at times I found myself getting overly emotional. That’s where this author excels for me, what is happening to the characters not only affects them, it affects the reader also. All the emotions flow from the pages directly onto the reader.
Fighting Monsters is yet another dark and compelling read in the series. It feels very much more authentic than some other crime books out there as you can tell that the author draws from her own background, making it a much more believable reading experience. As usual, I am left desperate for more and can’t wait for the fourth book to come out.
