Shallow Waters by Rebecca Bradley. Read January 2015.

A gritty and realistic police procedural debut.
“When the naked, battered body of an unidentified teenager is found dumped in an alleyway, post-mortem finds evidence of a harrowing series of events.
Another teenage death with the same MO pushes DI Hannah Robbins and her team on the Nottingham City division Major Crimes Unit, to their limits, and across county borders. In a race against the clock they attempt to unpick a thick web of lies and deceit to uncover the truth behind the deaths.”
I love discovering new favourite crime authors and Rebecca Bradley is now amongst them. DI Hannah Robbins is a character with hidden depths that I hope to learn more about in many future instalments.
Some of the events in this book are truly horrifying and not easy to read, but this serves to focus attention on the unenviable job of today’s police force.
I would recommend this book to all crime fiction fans especially if you enjoy Leigh Russell’s Geraldine Steel series which has a similar hard-hitting style.
My copy was purchased from Amazon Kindle Store.
