Jack Mawgan, a successful homicide detective, abandons his police career to become a paramedic but his instincts for solving violent crime prove impossible to leave behind. In his first case in this new role a millionaire businessman from Glasgow is assassinated at his home in Cornwall. The killer’s trail leads to an aristocratic crook and his henchman who both have much blood on their hands. Jack attends the murder scene in his new role as ambulance technician but it leads to a life threatening situation for him, his family and his friends that is only resolved after more murder and mayhem. (This story is built around real places, real people and real events, but the plot and characters in the book are entirely fictional.)

    A griping novel with a slowly developing plot that rises to a crescendo making the book very difficult to put down at times. Jack Mawgan is a retired police detective who joins the ambulance service in Cornwall but inevitably is drawn into a strange case that involves corruption at the highest level and threatens the lives of his family and friends. If this is Geoff Newman's first novel (I'm not sure) then it is a very accomplished work that appears to be thoroughly researched. He includes a vast amount of detail about many varied aspects of the plot that for me were fascinating and very believable. If you are planning a holiday in Cornwall then this is the book to take with you and you might even feel compelled to visit some of the places featured. You will realise that the author knows them very well. I had a small problem keeping up with some of the characters as my memory failed me when I had to put the book down for a few days. If I had not read this as an e-book I would have... More > discovered, before the end, that there was a list and short biography of all the characters at the back of the book. I wish I had known! I don't read many novels but will be buying the next in the series very soon. As an aside, I do enjoy reading a book with almost no typos. What a refreshing change.< Less
