Everyone is shocked by the discovery of yet another body - but this time alive - found by PC Hugo Bott, Barston's beat officer, in a field at the top of Farm Hill.

Once again the Major Crime Unit is challenged as more incidents arise. DCI Jacqui Foster is reported missing, assumed kidnapped, whilst another buried body has been discovered by a young couple walking their dogs in the woods near Barston.

Detective Alun ap Prichard is devastated by Jacqui Foster's disappearance and all he wants to do is find her. Instead, he is tasked with finding Harry Beddoes, who it is now known didn't die by his own hand in a suicide attempt.

DI Luc Wariner finds himself at the helm of a rapidly depleted Major Crime Unit, and no one takes seriously Private Investigator Bartholomew Bridges, who seems to be the only one who has the key to unravel the complex cases. Will he tell what he knows?

It's a race against time to unravel the complex ties between the main suspects. Could there be someone, yet unknown to them, who is really responsible?

This is the third book in a crime trilogy. The first book was Getting Even: Revenge is best served cold (2013) and the second was Rogue Seed (2014). Boxed Off completes the crime investigations by the Major Crime Unit.

Pat McDonald of Nottingham, England, worked in law enforcement and the criminal justice system. Boxed Off was conceived as the end of this crime trilogy, "where the bodies of some of the missing characters turn up buried or floating in a box in the river, which seemed a fitting end to the bad characters."
