MEET DETECTIVE KATE HAMBLIN IN THIS BESTSELLING SERIES FROM A FORMER POLICE OFFICER.
Detective Kate Hamblin is called out to an indecent exposure incident at the home of famous crime novelist Tamara Callaghan.
Then at a book signing, every copy of Tamara’s new novel is destroyed. It’s clear someone has a personal vendetta against the author.
But things take a grisly turn when the flasher is eventually found hanging from a beam in an old converted barn nearby.
The word ‘SORRY’ is scrawled on the floor beneath him. Kate is not convinced it’s suicide.
Which means the team might not only be dealing with a stalker on the Levels, but also a murderer . . .
DISCOVER A BREATHTAKING NEW SERIES OF MYSTERIES THAT YOU WON’T WANT TO PUT DOWN.
Perfect for fans of Rachel Abbott, Robert Bryndza, Joy Ellis, Mel Sherratt, Angela Marsons, Helen H. Durrant, Colin Dexter or Ruth Rendell.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT DAVID HODGES’S DETECTIVE KATE HAMBLIN MYSTERY SERIES:
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “You can’t fail to love Kate, the main character. Despite all her shortfalls she always delivers, normally without the credit, which makes her character believable.” Paul
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Another gripping storyline from David. I like the personal side to the story as well as the crimes. Kate and Hayden seem such an odd couple but they bounce off each other. Well worth reading.” KLW
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Read the whole series, excellent books, well written and full of twists and turns. Strong female detective in charge of cases. Would highly recommend.” Jacqueline
Kate is a feisty, young police detective, with a dynamic approach to her job. She is plucky and tenacious, but prone to being impetuous and headstrong, which often lands her in tight spots and does not exactly endear her to her crusty boss, DI Ted Roscoe.
In stark contrast to Kate, her detective partner, Hayden, is an overweight, untidy ex-public schoolboy, with a pompous, laidback attitude, which drives her to distraction. But he is also highly intelligent, with a keen, analytical mind and a practical, reasoned approach to everything, which, with a prevailing wind, can sometimes act as a brake on his partner’s more impulsive actions.
The Somerset Levels covers an area of about 160,000 acres between the Mendips and Quantock Hills, in the County of Somerset. Sparsely populated outside the local towns of Bridgwater, Glastonbury and Street and prone to flooding, it is a haven for wild life, a wild, secret place with an atmospheric brooding stillness, which creeps into the very soul; a place where the booming call of a bittern or the beating of an owl’s wings in the mist is bound to fire the imagination of any self-respecting crime novelist, whose thoughts will invariably turn to . . . murder.
David Hodges is a former police superintendent, with thirty years’ service. Since ‘turning to crime’, he has received critical media acclaim, including a welcome accolade from Inspector Morse’s creator, the late great, Colin Dexter, and he is now a prolific novelist with eleven published crime novels and an autobiography on his police career to his credit. His previous police experience has enabled him to provide a gritty realism to his thrillers and his Somerset Murder Series, featuring feisty female detective, Kate, and her partner, Hayden, has gone from strength to strength, attracting interest in the United States as well as in the UK.
