If you have ever wondered what it was like to be a police officer then this story will give you a few ideas as the friendship and the ribbing stands out as honest. I really like Lisa’s style of writing as the short chapters make it very punchy with each one having a main point.
The main character Nina Foster has been off sick from a stab wound, returning to work her boss wants her to get back into it slowly but Nina has other ideas and is not that thrilled at being put on a cold case.
Finding out what her colleagues are working on she drifts off to help them as it seems far more interesting than a 1964 train crash. I love the part about ‘where are the fruit and veg’ as the train crashes into a lorry supposedly carrying them but it is empty.
Two worlds of crimes are becoming linked, can Nina get to the bottom of it before someone else dies?
Nina’s private life is not a simple story either as years before her sister and her were kidnapped with her sister taking all the beatings leaving her with major disabilities, should Nina feel guilty for coming out ok, but nobody realises that she is not ok and is still dealing with the effects of the trauma.
Another brilliant book by Lisa Cutts, who is fast becoming another favourite author of mine.
