Product description

Product Description

Rock climbers can’t afford to make careless mistakes. But Detective Inspector Nick Dixon’s former climbing partner, Jake Fayter, died doing just that. Or so it seems. Dixon suspects foul play, but his only leads are unreliable accounts of something odd happening in Cheddar Gorge seconds before Jake fell.

The more Dixon learns about Jake’s life, the more he realises that Jake hadn’t been quite the man he remembered...and a lot of people could have wanted him dead. Once Dixon gets too close to the truth, those people will emerge from the shadows and kill to protect their secrets.

As the body count rises, Dixon bends the rules to breaking point to lure out a killer and unravel a conspiracy of silence that will rock the sleepy town of Burnham-on-Sea to its core.

As the Crow Flies is the electrifying first novel in the DI Nick Dixon Crime Series.

Revised edition: This edition of As the Crow Flies includes editorial revisions.

Great story and some good characters. Boyd falls down a bit on his writing. Conversations are stilted and the narrative could benefit from more intensive and detailed description, especially of the outside locations of the plot - sights and sounds, flora and fauna, atmosphere - which would help readers unfamiliar with Somerset, and please those who are. I enjoyed this enough to read another one, and I'm hoping that experience will have joined better writing to a great story.

For Boyd's first, this is a pretty good start. His main character Dixon needs a bit more fleshing out and I picked the culprit pretty early on. But like the twist with his climbing mate's delayed email but not quite sure how that could be sent later. Will read the others and hope that he develops his Dixon character further. Has a very relaxed, readable style.

Always interesting to read a novel with an expert on an interesting topic. Both police work and climbing. Will be good to read more.

Good read. Beginning of a series, in the same vein as Inspector Banks books

Rather tame story, not very well written.
