This series is well written, plots are tightly crafted and the characters are believably drawn. I look forward to each new Nick Dixon book. While each one stands alone it is best to read them in order. There are connections and characters introduced in each book where having the back-story is helpful.
DI Nick Dixon is taking part in a night time sting on some eel poachers on the coast. After capturing the poachers, one of his officers alerts him to a body in a van that it in the water and the tide is closing in fast.
Nick vows to catch the killer of Harry Lucas. The killing appears to have the same MO as a person who was active in the 1990’s called “The Vet.”
While Nick is convinced that the killer is not The Vet, but a copycat, the investigation gets underway and personalities clash.
As with all of the Damien Boyd novels, this book is both well written and plotted. The story starts out with suspense and the tension & it increases as the book goes on. I highly recommend this series. Damien Boyd is a great writer and I look forward to reading many more Nick Dixon stories.
