Money rules…but to what extent?

DI Katy Foster knew she had big shoes to fill when her long-time partner DI Lorne Warner retired. Now she has a new partner, DC Charlie Simpkins, Lorne’s daughter, and their first case together leaves them baffled.

A series of murders, and the deaths of two police officers leads to a dangerous investigation that makes no sense. One thing is certain-many more lives will be at risk unless Katy and her team can conquer the evil lurking within the city.

Ultimate Dilemma – Coming October 2020

My Thoughts:

As a huge fan of the Justice series with the wonderful Lorne Warner, I was a bit dubious about a spin off series which has DI Katy Foster at the helm with a new partner, Lorne’s daughter. I was wary about how it would all work not having Lorne in the lead but Katy instead. Also having seen Charlie growing up in the previous series, how would I take to her now being in the police force herself? Lorne has left some pretty big boots to fill but I have to say the author has nailed it.

Katy makes a great boss to her team and her personal life is quite different to Lorne’s which I think helps separate both women and made sure as an avid reader of this authors books, I wasn’t comparing the two women. I also enjoyed seeing Charlie as a grown woman and proving herself. As with Katy, I wondered if Charlie would end up being in the shadows of her mother’s career but she seems to be showing everyone just what she is capable of and making her own stamp on things.

What better way to start a series off than with a high body count. They just keep stacking up of which the author concentrates more on the police procedural side of things which worked well in letting the readers get to know the new dynamics and team better. It doesn’t make for any less of a griping read as it turns into a race against time and the pace kept ramping up having me racing through the pages.

Gone In Seconds has so much going on that I was firmly glued to the pages and storyline. Its a great start to a new series that has left me eager for more as well as leaving me in no doubt that this is going to be every bit as enjoyable as the original Justice series. A thrilling, edge of your seat read.

My thanks to the author for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
