About The Book

You get away with murder.
In a remote sea loch on the west coast of Scotland, a fisherman vanishes without trace. His remains are never found.
You make people disappear.
A young man jumps from a bridge in Glasgow and falls to his death in the water below. DS Max Craigie uncovers evidence that links both victims. But if he can’t find out what cost them their lives, it won’t be long before more bodies turn up at the morgue…
You come back for revenge.
Soon cracks start to appear in the investigation, and Max’s past hurtles back to haunt him. When his loved ones are threatened, he faces a terrifying choice: let the only man he ever feared walk free, or watch his closest friend die…


My Thoughts

Everything started with a suicide, the good police officer could not believe that a young man jumping to kill himself was voluntary but pressured by someone. He will ask for help from his friend D.S. Max Craigie, who as soon as he starts investigating discovers that this is not an isolated case and that someone is killing people in the world of drugs. Who and why now?
I have to say that I am a little biased with this book, I loved all the mystery and investigation done by D.S. Max Craigie but I didn’t like the vengeance part of the story. I can understand that this is a series and you need a closure for the previous book. But the case was so interesting and full that for me, this was unnecessary.
I loved how the author shows us the two sides of the police, the corrupt and the ones fighting against corruption. To make us remember that there are always two sides everywhere and the fight is not easy, who to trust when you are investigating your own co-workers?
This had been a quick read, you can’t stop turning pages till you discover what really happened. The characters are real with feelings and emotions that you could relate too, possibly that’s why I liked this book so much, it’s addictive!
I hope this will not be the last book of the “D.S. Max Craigie” series, he is really good!

About The Author

Neil was born in Liverpool but grew up in Kent, leaving aged seventeen where he served for six years in the Military Police with the RAF. He left the Metropolitan Police in 2015 where he served for over twenty-five years, predominantly as a detective, leading and conducting investigations into some of the most serious criminals across the UK and beyond.
Neil acted as a surveillance and covert policing specialist, using all types of techniques to arrest and prosecute drug dealers, human traffickers, fraudsters, and murderers. During his career, he successfully prosecuted several wealthy and corrupt members of the legal profession who were involved in organised immigration crime. These prosecutions led to jail sentences, multi-million pound asset confiscations and disbarments.
Since retiring from the Metropolitan Police, Neil has relocated to the Scottish Highlands with his wife and son, where he now writes crime thriller books, walks his dog, and looks out of the window at the view a little too much.
