Detective Mike Nash thought that moving back to Yorkshire from London would give him a quieter life. Little did he know . . .

WHILE THE CAT’S AWAY . . .

Mike Nash is away on compassionate leave but that doesn’t mean the criminals are going to take a break.

Detective Clara Mironova and the Helmsdale team face a sudden increase in crime. Minor offences ranging from theft, shoplifting, and poaching, pale into insignificance when a violent turf war breaks out between rival drugs gangs.

Soon they have to cope with three murders, including the shooting of a police officer killed on a routine call.

NOW IT’S PERSONAL

Then a batch of deliberately contaminated heroin hits the streets, resulting in the deaths of three addicts and causing media panic.

WHO’S THE MASTERMIND BEHIND THE CRIME WAVE?

Thrilling from the first page, this is a book which never lets up with the surprises.

A BREATH-TAKING CRIME THRILLER PERFECT FOR FANS OF IAN RANKIN, JD KIRK, DS BUTLER or PETER ROBINSON.

Top notch police procedural.”

MIKE NASH
A highly talented detective, he was a rising star in the Metropolitan Police. Following a particularly gruesome case involving a sadistic serial killer, Nash turns down the chance of promotion and heads back to his native county of Yorkshire. He hopes that returning to his roots will bring peace of mind. However, although the pace of life seems gentler, the crimes prove no less horrific. His skills are tested to the limit by a series of violent crimes that threaten to ruin his plans for a more relaxed lifestyle. Nor is his secret ambition to settle down made any easier by his one weakness, a seemingly unquenchable thirst for female company. That is, until . . .?

LOCATION
The books are set in a fictional rural North Yorkshire with a scattering of market towns, many small villages and countryside that changes from high moorland with dramatic crags, mountain tarns and sparse vegetation, to the gentler, lush agricultural land lower down the valley that is bisected by the river Helm. The town of Helmsdale is where Mike Nash and his team are based, in a sub-division of their headquarters in the larger town of Netherdale. Further to the west is Bishopton, also part of the hub our detectives cover.
