Heads or Tails (DI Nick Dixon Crime Book 7) Kindle Edition
The highly anticipated seventh novel in the bestselling DI Nick Dixon Crime Series.
A man has been mutilated and left to drown on the incoming tide, handcuffed in his van. With the murder bearing a striking resemblance to a string of sadistic killings carried out with surgical precision in 1990s gangland Manchester, it can mean only one thing: the killer is back.
Transferred to the Major Investigation Team, DI Nick Dixon is assigned a new partner and sent to Manchester. Meanwhile, the gruesome murders in Somerset continue.
Convinced of a connection with the unsolved gangland killings, and with the odds stacked against him, Dixon takes the ultimate gamble, determined to bring the killer to justice before it’s too late.
But is it the same killer? If so, why has he resurfaced now? And how many more must die?
“Another masterly novel involving DI Nick Dixon…No less absorbing and intriguing than the first six.” —Breakaway Reviewers (5 stars)

The hidden twists and turns of this fast moving tale reveal interesting facts and bring out the realities of our outstanding Police, Fire, Coastguard and RNLI who we overlook as they go about their daily business. Steve Yelland was 'man of the moment' here bringing to life the characters of the plot and helping to build another great read by Damien Boyd; who sadly can't write them fast enough for me.
Time to start reading the series again in the hope that story No 8 is on its way.
It starts off with eel poachers, then a body is found in a van stuck in the mud, and from then on the mystery expands to involving Greater Manchester Police, the IRA, a few dodgy policemen, and a rather gruesome way of murdering people.
DI Nick Dixon is an amiable chap with; compared to some, a relatively normal home life, with his dog Monty and his fiancee Jane, also in the police force. He has a good team behind him, and apart from the odd one or two, are the same people from book to book.
At the beginning, I thought that with more and more restrictions coming in on the use of diesel, Dixon at some point would have to ditch his old Land Rover for something newer. Later on in the book, that decision is taken away from him!
There was a real heart stopping moment in this book, but I will say no more. It was a really exciting book to read, and I can't wait for number 8. It seems there are only a few more days to go before its release. Can't wait.
The story could have been over complex but he manages to keep you on the right thread without any effort. I really could see this being a TV series.
If Damián does read this I wish to say thanks you have upped your game.
