Another excellent read, with a twist

Allison Valentine

Oh my day's, I love the K&C series and this is by far the best one yet.After petrol stations being robbed by mask men at gunpoint and conveniently no working CCTV to go on police are struggling to find the people behind the raids. After a local jeweller's is hit by the same gang with serious consequences Jack and Wendy are brought in to investigate.With Mildenheath CID still in the balance of bring shut down by the new PPC, Jack and Wendy have their work cut out to solve the crimes fast


It goes without saying that this is yet another excellent novel from Adam Croft. Once more we are plunged into the world of Mildenheath CID and the lives of DCI Jack Culverhouse and DS Wendy Knight. This is such an brilliant series of books that I don’t want them to ever end. This time we see Jack having to start looking closely at his team and try to find whoever has been helping his arch enemy, Gary McGann to stay one step ahead of the police and thus avoid justice for 35 years. There are plenty of twists, turns and red herrings to keep us guessing. In the meantime, Wendy Knight is getting ever more comfortable in her new relationship with Xav and Jack’s relationships with his teenage daughter Emily, and lady friend Chrissie, get both complicated and interesting. At the end of the story we get a slight hint that there will be just as much excitement in the next episode, so I hope it’s not long in coming.


What more can I say about Adam's books? I've run out of adjectives. As ever this book was a page turner from page 1. Adam writes with such feeling that you really do believe the characters are real and its not just a made up story. Always look forward to his next book and disappointed when i fimish it too quickly!


The ninth book in the series and we get more of Jack and Wendy away from their work. They are a good team.Shame about the mole. The two fat lazy sergeants remind me of the two in Brooklyn 99!
