A bag of severed fingers is found in the playground by a rough housing estate "An edge of your seat detective thriller which had me completely enthralled. Calladine and Bayliss are fascinating police partners. The end was both surprising and uplifting." Beth Boyd "A must-read new police procedural that will have you gripped. The characters, setting, and plot are detailed and believable. Can't wait for the next one." Sarah Stevens First a shooting, then a grisly discovery on the common . . . Police partners, D.I. Calladine and D.S. Ruth Bayliss race against time to track down a killer before the whole area erupts in violence.

Dead Guilty is not on the database, so I tagged one of Durant‘s others novels. Dead Guilty sounded like another Christy-esque type mystery. The story, set in Wales, follows a dogged detective trying to solve two seemingly separate cases. The plot was good, but they style of writing wasn‘t fluid and the ending was somewhat predictable. This always happens when the cover boasts “a twist you‘ll never see coming” because then you expect it! ⭐️⭐️1/2

This book was reviewed high on GR but it fell flat to me. I felt like the writing was forced. I wanted to like it but it was a very average book to me. I would give it 2.5-3 🌟. Kind of a bummer on a gloomy day... So on to the next!

Not feeling the Good Daughter, pretty sure it‘s my mood and not the book. Going to read a short one and see if that helps! 🤓 #litsypartyofone
