Corruption, armed robberies and grisly murders; the kind of things that could churn anyone's stomach used to make up an average day on the beat for ex-Chief Inspector Sandy Neil. However, after a nasty divorce and one too many bureaucratic headaches took him out the game, Sandy is forced out of his life of peaceful mundanity when a series of murder victims make national headlines.
In a tale that blurs the line between the unapologetically insidious criminal underworld and the shiny furnishings of the most publically respected police departments, Tony Buckingham's Valentine's Day sees Sandy, as well as a myriad of other increasingly hostile characters from all walks of life, come together to crack one of the most famous cases of their career. However, as tensions increase, it's only a matter of time before this volatile concoction of would-be criminals and good-hearted Samaritans ignites and sends everyone caught in the cross-fire up in flames.
Full of enough action and dry wit to see you through to the very end, the author's latest book spins a sinister plot that will have you on the edge of your seat with every turn of the page. Boasting an ensemble set of personalities, Valentine's Day keeps its allegiances close to the chest as each new main player threatens to upset the balance and reverse everything you've come to know as the truth. Expanding on the world built in the author's previous novel, The Stamp of Treachery, Tony Buckingham's aggressively entertaining latest crime story is the type to shoot first and asks questions later.
