Shallow Waters (Detective Hannah Robbins Crime Series Book 1) Kindle Edition
The dumped body of a girl is found in an alleyway, forcing Detective Inspector Hannah Robbins into the darker side of Nottingham. The scene is brutal, demanding Hannah bring closure to the girl’s media-hungry mother.
When Hannah arrests the killer it becomes clear that all is not what it seems. This was not a single act of violence. There is a long shadow being cast and a larger problem. And someone wants to stop Hannah from finding out the truth.
All the while a member of her team is hiding a life-changing secret that could have serious repercussions for the investigation. But Hannah is too distracted by the case to pick up the cues.
Things take a disturbing turn when Hannah finds evidence that indicates a killer is only a hairs-breadth away from claiming his next victim.
Just how far is she willing to go to save the next girl?
Shallow Waters is the compelling crime debut by ex-police detective Rebecca Bradley.
Download Shallow Waters to explore a tense police investigation with a real sinister side and a shocking finale.
For fans of Angela Marsons and Peter James.

I thought this book was brilliantly written, never sensationalising its seriously dark subject matter and presenting the reader with a host of believable characters dealing with exceptionally difficult circumstances. I learned so much about police procedure whist reading SW, and, as a former resident, I thought Nottingham was portrayed just right. In fact, the description on a whole is exquisite; this is a book filled with very clever writing! The ending was also a huge shock and something I never saw coming.
I enjoyed the character of Hannah Robbins thoroughly and will certainly be reading the second book in the series!
This book is written mostly in the first person and much of the focus is on DI Hannah Robbins, as Hannah begins her investigation I felt all of her emotions anger, pity, frustration and empathy as she struggles to find the killer. Hannah come across as a fairly "normal" protagonist, unlike some female detectives she seems well grounded, tenacious and doesn't seem to have many vices, apart from her crime reporter boyfriend Ethan who she has a very precarious relationship with, especially when their working worlds collide. Hannah's team also have well developed characters, and they come across as a very credible team. The fact that Rebecca Bradley is a retired Detective in the police is very evident and the wealth of knowledge comes across clearly in making the story and plot lines believable, at the same time as giving the characters real depth.
Shallow Waters also gives an insight into the deviant Paedophile and how they justify what they do, again I found this uncomfortable reading at times,but it does add authenticity to the plot, and it is something that is explored but not lingered on just to sensationalise the plot. From the opening chapter my heart was pounding, as the investigation intensified I found couldn't put this book down. Shallow Waters is gripping from the first page until the last. Unsettling and disturbing, the investigation leads to a devastating and tense climax, one which left me stunned. Rebecca Bradley is a fresh innovative and powerful new voice in crime fiction and I can't wait to read the next book in the series Made To Be Broken which is out on the 30th June. I would highly recommend this book to others
I've read other novels by ex and serving police officers and most seem to get carried away along "THE SWEENEY" route, this is more like a "Morse" though not quite so demanding on the grey matter.
All in all very enjoyable. I'm now half way through the next book, "Made to be Broken" and got the short story prequel to this novel, Three Weeks Dead, another good read, by subscribing to the authors mailing list.
I'll be keeping my eyes open for her next offering.
I'm not normally a fan of books written in the first person, but because it's not all in the first, somehow it seems to fit quite well. There are a few grammatical errors, but this could be down to it being in Kindle form, but it didn't t spoil my enjoyment of reading this book.
It's a tough subject to write about, and I think because of the author's background in the Police, it shows how they do get very personally involved in cases like this.
I'm not sure such a close relationship between a Police officer and a journo is realistic. Usually it's quite frosty, and the Police and the press rarely bosom buddies. Personally I think he's only out for any info he can get from Hannah, but in a very subtle way. To me he comes across as being a bit smarmy if not well dodgy.
And the Policewoman who didn't tell her SO she was pregnant, and who needlessly put her life on the line. How selfish to everyone involved.
The ending is a bit abrupt. I feel it could have given the reader more (I hate this word) closure. But no doubt titbits will come out in the next book as, I hope more information about Hannah's background, and why her sister Zoe is in prison.
I look forward to reading the next book in anticipation.
