Cold Death

(The second book in the D.S.Hunter Kerr series)
A novel by

A pair of dark-hearted killers out for murderous revenge.
A Father hiding a terrible secret.
A young woman's badly beaten body, dumped in Barnwell Lake.
Hunter is pushed to his limits.
Taking a well-earned break with his family, Detective Sergeant Hunter Kerr's respite is suddenly shattered when he witnesses a violent argument involving his father, shortly followed by a murderous road-rage attack upon his parents.
Delving deeper, Hunters suspects his father is harbouring a sinister secret from his past.
Back home, the discovery of a woman's, badly-beaten body, beneath the freezing waters of Barnwell Country Park, add to Hunter's burden.
With a pair of sadistic killers on the rampage, a father desperate to keep his secret buried, and danger getting near to home, Hunter finds himself in a race against time to protect those closest to him.

Barnwell is a small part of the Dearne Valley area of South Yorkshire - a district steeped in working class culture, and one which is slowly recovering from the demise of centuries of heavy industry, especially coal mining. At times it is a very demanding area to Police, as its community work hard, and play hard, and it has no shortage of violent villains and murderers.

DS Hunter Kerr
DS Hunter Kerr is a 'fly by the seat of his pants' detective, who doesn't always lead by example, but his moral compass is to always do right by the victims and bring the bad guys to justice, (whether it be by fair means or foul).

THE REVIEWS - Over 50 5 star reviews on Amazon so far

"After reading the first book by Michael Fowler I decided to read his second book and have to say I Loved it, it held my attention all the way through so much so I couldn't put it down and thought it better than his first in the series with DS Hunter. I loved the fact other storylines ran alongside each other in the book and I hope Michael has another book lined up soon as I've bought his third book in the series, I really like the character DS Hunter he's down to earth and easy to get on with his colleagues great book" Robbie, 5 Stars, Amazon
"Really first class, at last an author who knows how the police departments work, the stress and strain of normal day to day work. I have read them out of order but they are so well written it does not take long to catch up." SPR8524, 5 Stars, Amazon
"This book is as good if not better than the first one. Turning between the professional and private life of D.S. Kerr. It shows just how much work goes into solving a case." Carolyn Woods, 5 stars, Amazon
"I didn't realise when I read the first book that Mr Fowler used to be a policeman. His experience really shines through showing the ups and downs of a police investigation and life as a policeman. Add to this a great plot and you have one of the best police procedurals I have ever read. I really hope there is another book in the offing." Elaine Tomasso, 5 stars, Amazon
