Kate Simms' career has been on the skids for a while but newly promoted, and with a move to a new force, she's determined to prove to her bosses that she has got what it takes to be a good detective.
When she's given a pretty open and shut task of looking into some drug-related deaths due to the recent death of a 'celebrity', Kate decides to dig a little deeper and contacts Nick Fennimore for help even though it was due to her acquaintance with him that has blighted her career these last few years. Together they establish that there's definitely something iffy with all of these overdoses but the more they look into the deaths the more it would appear that someone is out to tamper with their investigations as leads start to build up far too easily and take them down the wrong path...
A.D. Garrett is the pseudonym of writing duo Margaret Murphy, an award winning writer, and Professor Dave Barclay, a renowned forensics expert, and together they have written an exciting police procedural that had me gripped almost from the start. As the story progresses there were plenty of twists and turns to throw you off the scent and along the way Kate Simms has to work out just who she can trust, and who it is that doesn't want her to solve the case...
I sincerely hope that this book is the first in a new series as I'd love to read more from Kate Simms and Nick Fennimore in the future. They were a fantastic duo, despite their individual flaws, who together made a formidable team.
