Publisher's Summary

In the peace and tranquility of the woods at Pinehills on a Saturday afternoon, a mobile phone begins to ring. The phone belongs to DC Smith, and it isn't unusual that the call is from Kings Lake Central police station; what is unusual is the fact that he seems to be the subject of an investigation rather than taking part in one. What can the links be between a prisoner's violent death in another county, the disappearance of two teenagers, and the highest profile case in Kings Lake for many years? As Smith and his team begin to untangle the threads, one thing becomes clear - they are dealing with some of the most dangerous people that they have yet encountered.

Enjoyable Visit to "DC"'s World

I loved the first three books of this series. The main character is D.C. Smith - an older and much wiser police officer who shares his years of acquired knowledge of the job with younger co-workers.
He's not a "tortured" soul, but he is still learning about life. He has no "demons", but is smart enough to know he doesn't have all the answers. He's an ordinary guy who is very good at his job. And also a pretty good guitar player. And I enjoy reading about his adventures.
The pace in these books is steady. The stories are more about the people and the process than non-stop action. For me that makes the books much more interesting and enjoyable.
Gildart Jackson's narration is flawless.
Book 5 is scheduled for released on July 4th - I've reserved my copy.

Well-crafted, complex & w/o nauseating brutality

Exciting story. Detective experienced clever, humorous, reflective--no desperate broodiness. Action Intense, relationshups complicated. Engaging narration.

Meticulous and well-written

As the fourth of the series this volume might have been repetitious and forgotten about developing the characters. But it’s not. But nor is the investigation really the point of the writing, the exploration of the society of KL and the development of interesting characters is what makes this well worth reading. If you want adventure, read Andy McNab or other such rubbish. If you want an engrossing read then read Peter Grainger.

Story line is uninspiring. I could not bring myself to finish this book. This is a first for me.
