When a man is found dead, mutilated in his house, DS Wendy Knight and DCI Jack Culverhouse soon realize that Jeff Brelsford was killed for one reason: he was a pedophile.
As Wendy does her job and tries to find the killer, Culverhouse is less keen. As far as he's concerned, this is justice.
With Culverhouse's attitude and stubbornness leaving him on the sidelines, Wendy delves deeper into the dark and murky world of Jeff Brelsford, and what she discovers is enough to shock her to her core.
Could it be that the killer was someone very close to home, a police officer?
Rough Justice is a gripping, fast-paced serial killer thriller which will captivate fans of Peter James, Ian Rankin and Mark Billingham.

British modern detective novel
- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"
Another chilling listen that will shock you
WOW from the first page this author grabs your attention to the last with his gripping tale of mutilation that will make all men and most women cringe I know I sure did. The author left me with my mouth hung open as the killer starts is act and all he does to kill his victims. One serial killer down the author takes us off to the next one who has it in for pedophiles as he takes them down one at a time. This is the second book I have listened to by this author and it is just as good as the first one. The author took me in from the first page making me hold my breath with the chilling tales of a serial killer who knows just how to make these criminals pay for their crimes in a way that most of us would love to.
The author is also the narrator which had me a little nervous because most authors cannot narrate very well. However I thought that Mr. Croft did a pretty good job not as good as his past narrator but a pretty good job. I thought his voice was very pleasant with a delightful accent that pulls you in. I do think his female voices do need a little work to sound more female. I thought he did put emotion into the listen I always knew who was talking and what they were feeling. The tones for each character are pretty good that you have no trouble feeling the emotions the characters are feeling. There are no places where there are a repeat of words or any place where the volume is higher or lower than anywhere else in the audio. There are no background noises just a clear audio that is very enjoyable. If any breaks were taken I could not tell it was a very crisp clean audio that did hold my attention and at times making my heart speed up and leaving me holding my breath. I am looking forward to listening to more of his narration and feel he will become a wonderful delightful narrator as he goes along narrating more.
Poor Jack has so much on his plate from his wife coming back, not being able to see his daughter, his wife leaving again and is friend dying that it is hard for him to puy his heart into his work. He feeling the new serial killer is doing a wonderful job not saying he won’t do his job but when his mouth overruns his mind he gets into a lot of trouble. With a new boss coming on the scene he over steps his self lands him on leave. Wendy has her hands full trying to work out who the killer is and keeping poor Jack in line.
This was a very entertaining listen that really grabs you and keeps its as you try to work out who the killer is as well as trying to get over the shock of how he kills. It is very well written in a style that isn’t overwhelming even through the things the killer does is shocking. There is no romance or anything new on Jacks wife. What you get is how hard Jack is finding life when his whole world starts falling apart. He takes the death of his friend very hard and has trouble dealing with it. Not working is very hard for him as he starts drinking more and caring less. Wendy does her best to pull him back in but leaving her asking some tough question not only about Jack but other officers. This is a very suspenseful story as always it has its chills. Wendy and Jack work well together but this might be the last time they do if Jack can’t get his act together. The author gives you a surprising ending that really is wonderful. This is the second book I have listened to from this author and find his writing style a delight that really gets to your heart with characters that really pulls you in making them a part of their life. I just love these characters and what they bring to the story. The buildup of the plot is great with a few heart stopping moments that shock you. I can’t wait for the next one. This has turned out to be a wonderful series.
