This is the eighth novel in the Detective Inspector Tom Caton series. Set in Manchester and written with the author's usual attention to detail, this is a page turner that sets out to entertain and intrigue. Always written chronologically, from the point of view of the police team led by Detective Inspector Caton, the series involves us in the police procedures as well as the frustrations and difficulties they face when investigating major crime. There is always tension and drama and an exciting climax and Bill's books are well written with touches of humor to balance the horrors of the crimes and their unsavory perpetrators. In this book the story opens with the murder and mutilation of a young man and leads the team into the dark and dangerous side of the internet and social media.
The development of the characters, and the sub-plot surrounding them is consistent throughout the series and creates empathy between the reader and the always human, but not always perfect, policemen and women.
With a wedding planned Tom has his own personal deadline, and an even more powerful drive to arrest everyone involved in this particular story when a close member of his own family is threatened!
I enjoyed the book, as I have others in the series and recommend it to readers of detective fiction who like to follow the action from the police viewpoint and to be kept guessing.
Don't want to give any of the story away but just to say further that it is satisfying to see relationships of "normal life" coming together as part of the story, it makes it more interesting and real.
The only negative comment I would make is that Bill needs to get a final edit/consistency check on his books. In some of them the names get mixed up frequently (Frozen Contract perhaps the worst for this but it's in all of them) and there are "consistency errors" like Caton's age/birthday moving around. It's minor stuff but if you have a good memory they stick out like a sore thumb and when you're creating a backstory it damages it
Keep up the good work!
