A tough detective. A family on the rocks. The greatest danger may come from inside his own house…

Detective Sergeant Duncan Riley has always worked hard to maintain order on the streets of Manchester. But when a series of incidents at home cause him to worry about his wife's behaviour, he finds himself pulled in too many directions at once. After a colleague Amanda Lacey asks for his help with a prescription drug epidemic, he never expected the case would infiltrate his own family…

As Riley and Lacey trace the drugs to a dangerous prepaid app, a scary situation with Riley's children takes his marriage to the breaking point. Little does he know that his home and work lives are about to collide, and the detectives may not survive the aftermath.

Hi, I’m Linda Coles, an English woman now living in New Zealand.

I’ve written marketing books and a couple of romance books, and have now settled on crime as my chosen genre, since that’s what I enjoy reading the most.

I developed the DS Amanda Lacey series back in 2017 and have watched her and her colleagues grow over the stories, through their work as well as their personal lives. Jack Rutherford is her work partner, and is a bit of a ‘Maigret’; as for Amanda herself, I can’t think of anyone she’d be like except maybe like lots of women. She’s honourable, savvy, loving and wears well-polished Doc Martin boots with her sensible work suit, so that should tell you something of her nature. Together the duo work the strangest of crimes in Croydon, UK. I do like to give them both modern cases to solve, quite often involving the dark web for a bit of extra intrigue.
