Product Description

Product Description

Trainee jockey, Noel Woodman, has been kicked to death by an aggressive stallion at a horse racing stables near Bridgwater. Everyone is convinced it was an accident, except his brother, Jon, home on leave from Afghanistan.

Still recovering from the physical and mental scars of his last case, DI Nick Dixon is drawn into the investigation at the point of a gun and soon begins peeling away the layers of secrets and lies.

With the pressure mounting, his determination to unlock the case is tested to the limit, and, as the hunt for the killer gathers pace, Dixon finds himself fighting for his life in the dead of night.

The third in the DI Nick Dixon Crime Series, Kickback follows on from Head In The Sand, which has been described as 'brilliant'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping read 2 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The third book from Damien Boyd and it lives up to the first two. Set in somerset where I live, it has the added interest of local landmarks for me but will appeal to anyone who likes a fast pace thriller. One tip, make sure you pour yourself a drink before you start reading because you won't want to put book down until you get to the last page!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 30 Mar 2014
By Aurora TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is another winner from Damien Boyd. Interestingly it begins only a couple of days after the events of the previous book in the series Head In The Sand (The DI Nick Dixon Crime Series) and in an unusually congruent touch, frequently refers back to that case, not just in the obvious way that Nick is carrying an injury picked up in the climax of it. Nick seems to be a magnet for trouble and we are not very far into the story before it finds him. I would think his friends would be starting to be very wary of going anywhere with him socially. Would a police officer be back on duty so soon after being stabbed? I suppose it stops him having time to get over anxious about the perils of the job.
I am glad to see relationships being fleshed out in this book both professionally and socially - despite my previous comment. Nick's good working relationship with Roger Poland fits well with their out of work friendship, even if they do talk shop. Whilst he is coaching Louise Willmott professionally, it is also evident that there are some people whom he doesn't care for, especially when he thinks they are not doing their job properly and I look forward to seeing how his mistrust of a certain DS develops. I was a little surprised that it wasn't followed through in this story, but it seems it could be part of a bigger story and definitely doesn't leave the reader feeling cheated. The author has left plenty of room for manoeuvre in future storylines.

Although a serious crime mystery, there were times when I laughed out loud, and that isn't something I do very often when reading. The humour was sparing but completely appropriate and added greatly to my enjoyment of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast moving thriller 2 Mar 2014
By Barrie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dick Francis meets Damien Boyd, you think Dick Francis would be odds on to win, well you would be wrong!

Kickback is a real page turner set against a racing background, excellent story line with a nice twist at the end, a very good read. Keeps up the high standard set by Damien's other books

Thank you so much for continuing to hold my interest throughout this book. Your in depth knowledge educating non-participants into the Racing World enriches and adds another dimension to the plot. I cannot wait to order the next book.

You haven't disappointed Damien. What twisting motive lines and deviously thought out final reveal. The pages covering the final search for the killer were some of the best edge of seat stuff I've read (I was there with them!); again that style of no irrelevant nonsense /stick to the story / fast moving writing. Where's the fourth book?

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining 11 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've very much enjoyed this series of well-written detective novels in the tradition of the genre. They are well edited, pacey and seem well researched. I especially like the subtle character development which sets it far apart from the work of less accomplished writers. Hurry-up and write some more!
