    Carlyle is attempting too much and achieving too little and he's upsetting all the wrong people - this time it could be terminal... Jake Haggar has been kidnapped by his father who is threatening to sell the boy to a paedophile ring. Carlyle is struggling to get him back. It's not his case but it is his problem - it was his fault Jake was taken in the first place. But Carlyle's own caseload includes the murder of Agatha Mills. Her husband, Henry, has been arrested for murder but his explanation is so outlandish that Carlyle wonders if it may just be true.

    The fault lies in the interpretation

    I enjoy the premise of the series and the London geography and it was quite enjoyable.

    Light comic touch

    This book by Hames Craig has everything I like in my mystery: police procudure (a bit), good detectives with British Isles accents, set in the now,..Show More »

    Inspector John Carlyle gets the shock of his life when his mother announces she is getting a divorce after 50 years of marriage. But that's nothing compared to the storm that erupts when he stumbles across an execution of a wealthy businessman in a luxury London hotel room. The victim is the latest in a line of bodies being left across London by a ruthless Israeli hit squad.

    Going up against this deadly crew could prove to be fatal to Carlyle, but compared to his troubles at home, however, tracking them is something of a relief. But the body count continues to rise and then it gets personal....

    When Julian Schaeffer is shot in front of his son in a London park, suspicion falls on his estranged wife. The woman has a seemingly watertight alibi, but Carlyle - trying to make the best of a difficult relationship with his new sergeant, Umar Sligo - won't stop digging. Focused on the Schaeffer case, the inspector is not too interested when Daniel Sands is hauled in to Charing Cross, accused of kidnapping.

    Too many moving parts?

    No, not too many moving parrs but do not let your attention wander. I like the many crimes piling into Charing Cross police station. Threads ..Show More »
