Born in the late 40’s only a few years after the second world finished with all the hardships of rationing, cold houses windows running with condensation with frost forming on the inside as well as the outside, living in one room for heat. Growing up in the 50’s with little or none of the modern comforts of today’s modern world, my brother and sister were happy well as happy as you could be.
I worked in various organizations including PO as a steward on cruise liners (I must write about that) then on the buildings picking bits of skills here and there and became a jack of all trades certainly master of none.
Then joined the police stayed for 30 years mainly as a detective Sergeant dealing with all manner of criminal cases including child abuse rape cases and murder.
Jim's marriage was on the rocks because of his long hours working as a Detective Sergeant including his after hours drinking. He was on the verge of having a fling with Jackie a young vivacious detective who had shown more than a professional interest in him. His life was already falling apart.
Then came the investigation into Cindy's disappearance which would test Jim's skills as a detective. ‘Cindy where are you?’ became the mantra in his mind as he stared at her haunting image.
His world would be turned upside down by the revelations uncovered which reached into the government corridors of power. His bosses were told to back off the investigation by the secret services. But they didn’t, what they found made even the most hardened officers cringe with disgust as more depraved sexual acts were uncovered...
What people are saying...
"This is a fine detective novel. It takes you deep into the life and trials of a police detective. His home life, personal experiences, and the procedural part of being a dedicated detective. This has a bit of a noiresque quality. It is dark in substance and you may not agree with the personal choices but you will probably understand them. Personally I really enjoyed the writing style, depth of characters, and will certainly read more by the fine author."
