The Dying Squad Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Who better to solve a murder than a dead detective?
When Detective Inspector Joe Lazarus storms a Lincolnshire farmhouse, he expects to bring down a notorious drug gang; instead, he discovers his own body and a spirit guide called Daisy-May.
She's there to enlist him to the Dying Squad, a spectral police force who solve crimes their flesh and blood counterparts cannot.
Lazarus reluctantly accepts and returns to the Lincolnshire Badlands, where he faces dangers from both the living and the dead in his quest to discover the identity of his killer - before they kill again.

This wouldn’t have been so bad but the story did a vanishing act too. It felt like the author was trying to be really clever with the ‘after life’ that he had created but it made for very flat reading. In terms of characters, Joe Lazarus is likeable enough, as is Daisy-May but I’m not enamoured with them enough to follow them. Lincolnshire is given a fair shout but, to be honest, the expression “Lipstick on a pig” springs to mind.
Having set the scene with how Joe and Daisy-May will work together, the next book may deliver a more cohesive narrative but this isn’t one for me.
