Introducing Detective Jack Warr

DC Jack Warr and his girlfriend Maggie have just moved to London to start a new life together. Though charming, Jack can't seem to find his place in the world - until he's drawn into an investigation that turns his life upside down. In the aftermath of a fire at an isolated cottage, a badly charred body is discovered, along with the burnt remains of millions of stolen, untraceable bank notes. Jack's search leads him deep into a murky criminal underworld - a world he finds himself surprisingly good at navigating. But as the line of the law becomes blurred, how far will Jack go to find the answers - and what will it cost him?

5.0 out of 5 stars The plot thickens!
By Darren Campbell on 6 April 2022
Where to start???

Wow! What a gripping read. This was truly a book I found hard to put down and I was defeated only by sleep. I actually found myself wishing I could read faster.

Lynda has taken us on a HUGE journey here and she has been very subtle about it. It's not obvious during the read but, when you stop to reflect on book afterwards, it hits you what Lynda has done.

Apart from a thrilling story of the loveable main victim, who is mad as a box of frogs, we get possible connections for future instalments in the series.

The obvious connections may of course be chasing Adam in the future or possibly crossing paths again with our train robbing ladies. Yet despite all this, there is still so much more being developed.

Will we see Jack rising further up the ranks either by natural promotion or through the loss of his Boss Ridley to a horrible disease.

Does Jack lock horns with the inept Drug Squad boss Lewis or perhaps cash in a favour from Lyle at Hammersmith?

This topped with so much new insight into Jacks family and his 'gift' from Adam gives so many new and exciting avenues that could be explored.

We'll just have to wait and see.
