Slaughter of Innocents(2021)
(The first book in the DCI Garrick Crime Thrillers series)
A novel by M G Cole
MURDER IS EASY… WHEN NOBODY CARES…DCI David Garrick is recovering from the tragic murder of his estranged sister in an event that happened halfway across the world. The stress has aggravated his own health issues, leading to concerns that he may be suffering from hallucinations. It’s certainly not the type of problem he needs working for the Major Investigations Team in Kent.
Fighting his personal affliction, he throws himself into work and is immediately drawn into a new case: a murdered illegal immigrant. And she’s not the first…
With his fledging team, DS Okon, DC’s Wilkes, Lord, and Liu, they are drawn into the seedy world of human trafficking, illegal immigration – and the work of a serial killer with a passion for hacking souvenirs off their victims.
With the identities of the victims missing, mysteries deepen and suspicions grow as the investigation enters tricky ground as tensions between the locals and the victims are thinly concealed in the Garden of England’s quaint villages. Garrick and his team find themselves with a growing list of potential suspects, each with complex motivations that beg the chilling question – could there be more than one killer?
The debut book in a new series of procedural crime thrillers featuring DCI David Garrick Walsh - perfect for fans of Jack Gatland, J.D Kirk, L.J Ross, J M Dalgliesh, Ian Rankin, Damian Boyd, Alex Smith and Ann Cleeves!
