Overview

The headless body of a wealthy widow is discovered decomposing in Chelling Forest. Detective Inspector Lorne Simpkins and her partner, DS Pete Childs are assigned to the case. A few days later another victim, this time a young girl, is discovered. Who could the killer be and what's the connection between the two victims?

Then after a third murder, the killer contacts Lorne with a grisly surprise. It looks like Lorne has a serial killer on her hands - and one that has become fixated on her. As she tries to solve the crimes, Lorne is also coping with a failing marriage and new, unsympathetic boss with whom she has a secret past. Then, as she begins to despair at the lack of clues, help arrives from an unlikely source.

    My first book by a British author, and I loved it. Once I got past the differences in spelling, I found the differences in American Law Enforcement and British Law Enforcement fascinating.  Add to that great characters and an action packed thriller; and I couldn't put it down. 
    I would compare DI Lorne Simpkins to James Patterson's Alex Cross. A wonderful character I look forward to following through many more adventures.

    Very intense, about 250 pages

    This a very violent, almost sickening so, novel. It has about 250 pages. It us a murder mystery and all actions are extremely descriptive. I will tell you a bit about the prolog and you can decide if you want to read to this book from that and I wont be giving anything away. This is an across the pond mystery. There is a lot of English slang and grammer. The editing is okay. This novel starts out with a kidnapped woman, being tortured. She is in an underground room, being attended to by a man and woman. She is starving, being denied food and water. She is forced to eat her own excrement, then beaten to death, her head is removed with a hand saw. The details are pretty explicit. Before she dies, she dies, she asks what she has done, but is not told, her questions, cause her captors to become enraged. This noir mystery is very violent and I found it disturbing. It made me nervous and nauseous at times. There are a lot of adult themes. It is well edited and written. The main characters are hard and inured against the horrors they must deal with every day. This is a very intense read. For adults, ages 18 and up. This English/British novel is not chick lit. It is more rooster lit.

    Gritty and intense! This is the first book of the Justice Series

    Gritty and intense! This is the first book of the Justice Series and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm a fan of British Crime shows such as MI-5, so this was right up my alley. DI Lorne Simpkins is tough and hard-edged, but she's perfect for the part. The pace is fast, the action is intense. I'm looking forward to reading this series.

    I am so excited to have such a great new detective series to follow. DI Lorne Simpkins is a wonderful character to read. She is fiesty and tears into her work with gusto, not wanting to stop until she gets the bad "arse." Her partner, Pete, is the perfect counterpart to her and they make a wonderful combo. Lorne has some flaws, which only gives her characters more depth and realism. As a workaholic in a stressful job, she is trying to balance family life but still keep street crime under control. There is such a wonderful balance between these two separate storylines and it only adds to the character development. You end up feeling like you have known these people for years. That is such a hard thing to accomplish for a writer, and this just makes a reader not able to put down this book until the very last scene. Just when you think you know where this book is heading, it takes an about turn, something I think Comley must enjoy doing to her readers. She obviously likes to keep us on the edge of our seats! I am so excited there are 3 more Justice books available because Lorne Simpkins is someone I want to read a lot more about.

    OK read.

    This is the first book in the series so I will give it a little slack. The plot was a little tedious and predictable. This book could have benefitted from some very tight editing. Lots of typos. Will read the nextbook in the series before giving up on this author.

    I have now read all 7 of the Justice series, I am starting number 8. I found it very interesting reading, this was the first time reading a British author.


    I as I was reading it was like I was there, I could see what the author was talking about. By the time I was finished the first book I was looking for the others. I enjoyed Di Lorne Simpkins character very much she is a hard nose cop that know what has to be done and gets it done.

    Great read

    This book was a very intense read. It was about a sadistic seriel killer. At some points of the book I was so frightendd I had to stop reading and take a break. Money well spent 600 pages of a well written story with a strong female lead character.. I can not wait to read the next one in the series
