Product Description

Product Description


Charlie Miller, a Glasgow city centre police Detective Sergeant, is beset with a drink problem and scorned by his supervisors. Tasked the most menial inquiries to investigate, an acute shortage of manpower thrusts Charlie, suddenly and with extreme reluctance, into investigating the death in a fire of an unidentified 14 year old girl.
This death and the jibes of his peers, force Charlie to revaluate his life and investigatory skills. Adding to Charlie’s problems, he is obliged to work with a female Counter Terrorism officer when it is discovered the girls family is identified as having connections with Irish extremists.
To compound his problems and running parallel with Charlie’s inquiry is the city centre hunt for a serial sex attacker, a murder inquiry and an apparently serious attack on an elderly priest - are any or all of these incidents connected and will Charlie stay sober long enough to find out?

4.0 out of 5 stars Charlie's Promise 3 Nov. 2012
By Kenny D
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first time I have read anything from this author,a good story based in Glasgow an easy flowing simple read that kept the pages turning.
There were a number of gramatical and spelling errors which surprised me, are these books not proof read?
That aside it would not put me off reading more from this author,what can you expect for a book at less than a couple of pounds!!

I told u I would write an honest opinion. I absolutely loved this. Even better than the first. I was gripped by Charlie's story and felt myself involved and sucked into his life from the start. It was maybe a bit rushed at the end I'm sure you could have made another few chapters out of that. I have recommended this author to so many family friends and customers I'm thinking of becoming his pimp for a better word. A more lovely and family orientated man you could ever meet. It's been a please Mr Donald as always x

Well written story, good plot lines and interesting characters. It seems a pity that the author seems to write stand alone stories, this could work as a series.
