The Hammer Falls Blurb:
Some secrets, no matter how well buried, refuse to die.
When the remains of a woman are found in a burnt-out car, Eddie Collins reluctantly teams up with his enemy, DI Benson, to untangle the knot of lies behind this apparent suicide.
In the midst of all this, Eddie’s life grows more complicated by the day; his perfect relationship is suffocating him. As a CSI in the Major Crime Unit, he is also being forced to accept a promotion that he doesn’t want, leading a team that he can’t control or tolerate.
Even when the mystery is solved, proving it turns out to be deadly..
Barrett is back with his signature detective in the next instalment of the series. A strong follow-on from the previous books, Barrett’s writing has developed and his characters along with it.
More humour, better characterisation, actual character growth and another solid plot line that fans of the genre will doubtless enjoy.
