"The Rock" is the debut crime novella by tv/stage actor and broadcaster Robert Daws, and is a great introduction to the Sullivan and Broderick murder investigation series. DS Tamara Sullivan is sent on a 12 week secondment to Gibraltar after failing to obey orders in the London Metropolitan Police. She soon finds herself involved in an investigation unraveling a dark and dangerous secret relating to an incident back in 1966. Her relationship with her boss - no nonsense 'old school copper' Chief Inspector Broderick is a joy to read - there's humour at times but also respect and understanding that ends in them both being placed in perilous danger. I loved all the brilliant characters in this well crafted story, Robert has done really well in conveying them as likeable people and I thoroughly look forward to meeting Sullivan and Broderick again in the next in the series "The Poisoned Rock". I'd heard a lot about Robert's writing before I'd started reading this book and I am very impressed at the professionalism and expertise of his story telling, plot line and character development. I purchased this book through the year long monthly Urbane Book Club and yet again this book shows just how much thought and effort goes into producing their quality books, every page is like a work of art - it's so beautifully typeset and printed. It's easy to read this novella in less than a day if time allows and having done so myself, I felt like I'd just watched a mini tv show, it's was so full of excitement, tension towards the end, and an unexpected twist that keeps you turning the pages intrigued as to where the investigations were leading to. I can't recommend this book enough, a richly deserved 5 stars for a fabulous debut novella.
