Product Description

Product Description

Book Description: Eddie Rosario’s first outing and will be part of a series of crime thrillers set in the North East of England.

Product Description
A young woman’s naked body is discovered on the sand dunes at Seaton Sluice, North East of England. Asian cop Detective Inspector Eddie Rosario, an unpopular figure amongst his superiors, for speaking his mind and pushing the boundaries of legality, has been assigned to the case. A clue appears to be obvious to the inquiry; she has a name carved into her thigh, although the question is whose name?
On attempting to discover the girl’s identity it appears that there are larger forces at work than just a killer. The investigation leads Rosario back to an old case and he discovers a mix of politics and the underworld. More bodies turn up and it seems that there may be more than one person involved in the killings.
Rosario’s mind is in a fragile state as he is one of the ‘walking wounded’, he is in the point of a breakdown due to the death of his daughter, he will stop at nothing in order to attain a collar, but the criminals know he is coming…

Rosario is the equivalent to Marmite, you will either love him or hate him!

This is the correct version of the book (with typos amended -hopefully). Book 2 out in November 2013

What an outstanding novel from Anthony Stobart.
The Ties That Bind is a cracking novel which builds up pace with clever plot twists throughout.
The dialogue is witty, humerous and at times very moving.
Eddie Rosario is a believable likeable character with flaws that make him human.
Hopefully this is just the first of many books for Eddie and co. as The Ties That Bind leves you wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Melanie, Seaton Delaval 13 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an outstanding first novel by Anthony Stobart.
The Ties That Bind is an engaing story from the onset.which builds up pace with twist and urns encoprortaing my local are of the country with familiar names and places throughout.
The dialogue is appropriate to the area in which we live and very witty and believable.
Eddie Rosario is a character that you can believable in and emapthize with, espesially when he is at his most vunerable.
My husband and I are awaiting the next book in the Rosario series.
As I live Seaton Delaval, and work along Armstrong Road, I have shared this book with all of my colleagues and we are promoting this as much as we can !!

Well done Anthony

5.0 out of 5 stars The TIes That Bind 4 Aug 2012
By Claire
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just read the The Ties that bind, and Thoroughly enjoyed it. I used to live in the North East and the local references made me quite nostalgic. I found the main characters very believable, and at times vunerable, which made them more real somehow. I laughed out loud a few times too, that's always a good thing I think. The storyline was strong, and carried you along to the exciting conclusion, leaving you ready for more. So can't wait for the next one. !

4.0 out of 5 stars All round good story 10 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great book. The characters were well rounded and the plot was pretty good. I am definitely looking forward to Rosario's next outing.

On the down side, there were a lot of typos in it, which meant i had to re-read paragraphs a few times to make sure I had't missed something, which was a shame, but other than that it was a gripping story and a great first read for my new kindle.

If i had one criticism in the plot, its that the "informer" on the inside rolled over a little too easily at the end but i dont want to spoil it so read it through and I would be interested to know what others think.

Loved this book. Reminded me of wire in the blood but with the bonus of being based where I actually live. Looking forward to reading more in the series in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ties That Bind 4 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just finished reading "The Ties That Bind" and was gripped from the start, as I live in the North East I found that it perfectly encapsulates the atmosphere, humour and grit of the region and its people.If you love Rankin you will love Stobart, his ability to create empathy between the reader and the main character has left me hoping that there will be more to follow.

I enjoyed this book but there were a number of errors, especially towards the end. With better proof reading might have given it five stars.
