Don't Turn Back (Detective Karen Hart Book 3) Kindle Edition
You can cover up the truth but it won’t stay buried forever.
A man is found bludgeoned to death in woodland by the village of Canwick, and the close-knit community is sent into shock. Detective Karen Hart, still haunted by the tragic loss of her husband and daughter nearby, is brought in to investigate the horrific murder.
It soon becomes clear that dark secrets lie behind Canwick’s unspoiled appearance. When Hart begins to suspect that a modern-day slavery ring has been hiding in plain sight among the villagers, she faces a race to find proof before the culprits slip from her grasp. But when key witnesses start disappearing, it’s obvious that there’s a deep-rooted conspiracy to keep prying eyes away from the truth.
But in a village where everyone knows everyone, who knows more than they are letting on—and who can Hart really trust? She’s in deep and she’s never been more alone. She must confront the tragedy of her own past if she wants to catch the killers before it’s too late. Because one thing’s for certain—there’s no turning back…

Detective Karen Hart is called on to investigate the death of a man found bludgeoned to death in woodland by the village of Canwick. The village of Canwick has some dark secrets and it’s not long before Detective Karen Hart begins to suspect that a modern-day slavery ring has been hiding in plain sight among the villagers. The race is on to find the evidence before the guilty parties escape. But things are not easy for Hart as witnesses start disappearing and it becomes obvious that people are trying to keep the truth hidden.
Another fast paced crime novel with lots of action and plenty of back stories that help make this series such a success.
Because I'd read the previous two I felt I knew the characters and liked them to some extent, though I'd like to see DI Morgan jump off the page a bit more.
If you're looking for a good undemanding, crime story I highly recommend.
I liked the fact that cases are of different nature and again a view more realistic of the job.
This books always keep me hooked, so I'm not surprised to find me reading another one in just a few days.
So far I'm looking forward to reading what else comes up. So book 4 here I come!
