The publisher's summary provides all of the appropriate background to Heads or Tails which is Book 7 in the Detective Inspector Nick Dixon series by British author Damien Boyd. The novel, like the prior 6 in the series, has lots of action and intense suspense. It is a fast moving mystery with realistic and likable characters (except for the bad guys). Heads of Tails is an outstanding police procedural. Napoleon Ryan narrates very well.

I found this to be a little more confusing than the other 6 books in the series but it didn’t lose me completely, which was good. And one reviewer said there were too many characters in this and I have to agree. It could have done with about 10 fewer characters.
BUT, overall it was a great story about a serial killer who stopped killing then years and years later a copycat took his place, with details of the first killer’s victims that were never released to the public. The two killed buy stabbing their victims in the neck and drilling a hole right between their eyes, and there was a reason for that, you’ll have to read the book to find out why they killed that way.
Again, I gotta tell ya’ that I hate when you like a character and the author kills them off. This character wasn’t just in the book for a minute he was in it for most of the book. I was really bummed about that. No warning, no nothing, just BOOM he’s dead.
As always, there was no sex in this, I think a couple of pecks on the cheek between Dixon and Jane, our hero and heroine. And the F-bomb was used 24 times.
As to the narrator: Phenomenal! Napoleon Ryan laughed, cried, whispered, yelled, groaned, everything the book called for. I never get tired of listening to him. And the women sound exactly like women, not like a man trying to do a woman’s voice. He’s incredible.
brilliant as ever, cant wait for next book in series.
the characters continue to grow.

nothing i can say that havent said before. i love tgese books, well constructed stories with characters you grow with and like and a competent narrator. if you liked PD James Adam Dalgliesh then you will probably enjpy these books. Can be read independently but would advise to read in order.
