At the front of this book it mentions that Judith Cutler has written over twenty novels, including two crime series set in the murkier depths of Birmingham. There are also standalones set in the countryside. Cold Pursuit has a really interesting central character - Chief Superintendent Fran Harman, about to retire, called back to duty when resourcing problems arise. I can't think of another book I've read with an older female CS character, so it will be interesting.
"'Chief Superintendent Harman! Ms Harman!'
