Secrets In Blood: A British Murder Mystery (The Wild Fens Murder Mystery Series Book 1) Kindle Edition
If you can't live with the truth, bury it...
Following a devastating encounter with a serial killer, Detective Inspector Freya Bloom is left mentally scarred. After a six-month sabbatical, and no desire to return to the bustling London streets, she accepts a position in rural Lincolnshire in search of a slower pace of life.
But with London behind her, and a new life in the wild fens of Lincolnshire before her, she finds only endless drama in her new team, a tortured romance in her only ally, and crimes so deadly even the steely determination that drove her to success is tested.
From the moment Freya’s expensive heels hit Lincolnshire soil, the push-pull relationship with her Sergeant begins. Noses are put out of joint, tempers are frayed, and more importantly, a body is discovered on a wild beach. There’s no time to make friends. If Freya is to make her mark in this remote county, she must work with the team she’s been given, and untangle the web of lies surrounding the death of teenager, Jessica Hudson.
Can Freya ditch her designer heels for wellington boots, and adapt to the country life? Can she shape her new team into something workable? And can she put her past behind her long enough to prevent a second murder?
Secrets In Blood is the unforgettable first book in the Wild Fens Murder Mystery series by Jack Cartwright. Filled with twists, peppered with romance, and flavoured with humour, the Wild Fens Murder Mystery series is perfect for fans of JD Kirk, JM Dalgliesh, Ann Cleeves, and Rachel McClean.

A blatant inconsistency: when visiting the mortuary: "Don't stand there letting the heat out" - then on the very next page: "the soft hiss of the brushes that retained the cool air."
Wrong words: "an emotional outburst was eminent" - should be imminent.
"at the royal leisure" - the phrase is Her Majest's pleasure.
"a momentary reprise in the wind" - I think you mean respite.
"shoeing them from the wind" - shoeing is what farriers do for horses - try shooing.
"The incessant winds had yet to cease - if they had ceased they wouldn't be incessant.
Possibly just typos: "Ben nodded a silent repose." (How about response?)
"The forest offered a refuse". (The 's' and the 'g' aren't even close on the keyboard.
Others: "Near to" - a pet hate of mine - near OR close to.
"His self" - what can I say.
Yes, I know I'm a pedant, but I could to on with many more examples.
I suggest you employ the sevices of GOOD editors and proof readers.
I certainly shall not be reading any more by this author.
A brilliant story, fast paced throughout, exciting and imaginative.
Couldn't put it down.
The characters are lovable but also irritating at times due to their personalities!
I felt I was there, in the book, watching the events unfold but was surprised at the outcome! I didn't expect that!!
An excellent read! Can't wait to devour the others in the series.
Well done Jack.
Can't wait for the next one.
