Accused of pushing a boy to his death, DCI Doug Stirling is suspended from duty. Attacked in the media and haunted by the boy’s eyes as he let go of Stirling's hand, he must watch helplessly as an incompetent colleague bent on destroying him investigates the boy’s death.
Weeks later, a burnt-out car containing a savagely murdered, unidentified man leads ACC Steph Tanner to take a professional risk in appointing Stirling to lead the investigation. But with no witnesses, no forensic evidence and more theories than he has investigators, Stirling's investigation has too many 'loose threads' as a complex, interwoven history of deception, betrayal and sadistic relationships is revealed. Is the investigation as complex as it appears, or is there a simpler explanation?
With time the enemy and still traumatised by the boy's death, can Stirling bring the killer, or killers, to justice before his career is ruined? And then there are the women in his life. Things were already difficult enough when DC Helen Williams joins the team, a determined woman intent on rekindling their past relationship. And might Ayesha, the beautiful lawyer Stirling has grown fond of, be connected to the murder?

About the Author

Ray Britain’s third novel ‘Fear or Favour’ follows his previous titles, ‘Forgotten Lives’ (2021) and ‘The Last Thread’ (2017).

Ray Britain led specialist investigations as a Senior Investigating Officer, and was also a Hostage & Crisis Intervention Negotiator, a voluntary role that involved him in sieges, firearms operations, and many suicide interventions. His specialist roles took him to the USA, India, Europe, Australia and elsewhere, and he was awarded several Commendations. He also worked with the Serious Fraud Office and the Home Office, and with many other police services. That experience brings an authentic voice to his stories and the realities of investigation, and of human frailty.

If not writing, Ray might be enjoying hiking, rugby, skiing, reading, sailing, or yoga.
