    This is the first in the series of books about DI Matthew Adams and a different style of writing compared to the previous books I have read by Sheryl Browne, however I’m pleased to say I wasn’t disappointed. Matthew has had a long running feud with Patrick Sullivan since childhood when he was bullied by him. Their paths have gone in very different directions with Matthew becoming a respected Police Detective Inspector and Patrick becoming a drug-dealing pimp out for revenge for when his Brother was killed during a drugs bust. The revenge he takes involves killing Matthew and his wife Becky’s much loved young Daughter but that’s not enough for Patrick, he wants to see Matthew suffer more, much more, than he already has and this involves Becky and his Niece Ashley, who the couple have recently taken in from a Care Home, where she has lived since her Mum (Matthew’s Sister) became an alcoholic. I won’t say more than that so as to not spoil the story for readers but what I will guarantee is that this is a fast paced thriller which had me holding my breath at times and is well worth reading.
