Dead Lock (DI Nick Dixon Crime Book 8) Kindle Edition
Early on a cold Somerset morning, ten year old Alesha Daniels is reported missing by her father, a violent alcoholic. Her mother, a known drug addict, is found unconscious, but it’s her mother’s boyfriend the police are keen to trace.
As the hunt for Alesha gathers pace, a second local girl is taken, plunging another family into the depths of despair.
Cutting short his holiday, DI Nick Dixon races home to join the Major Investigation Team, but no sooner has he identified a network of local suspects than they begin to show up dead.
At odds with his superiors, Dixon is convinced the child abductions are anything but random, but nobody is prepared for the investigation to lead quite so close to home.
Can Dixon and his team crack the case before all the suspects are silenced? And will he find the missing girls before it’s too late?

Sorry, but the pressure is on: I hope Damien Boyd has his next book on the boil.
The cast of regular characters is quite large, but they all have a part to play supporting Nick Dixon in his regular role as a Somerset based Detective Inspector.
The series is growing rapidly (Thankfully) along with its characters, and although each book stands on its own the sequential nature of the series makes reading them in order the best way to enjoy them all.
Can't wait for his next book Soon I hope !
Possibly my favourite in the series; a great page-turner, and highly recommended.
