9781911021247: DEAD SILENT a gripping detective thriller full of suspense

Female students are going missing but nobody’s noticed yet

“An outstanding police procedural that you won’t want to put down. Brilliant!” Chris Child

A body is found in a car crash, but the victim was already dead . . .

Police partners, D.I. Calladine and D.S. Ruth Bayliss race against time to catch a vicious serial killer. The first two victims are American university students and both have livestock tags fixed to their earlobes.

Who wanted them dead and what’s the connection? The detectives piece together the forensic evidence and track down the witnesses, to reach a shocking conclusion.

If you like Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott, Mel Sherratt, Ruth Rendell, or Mark Billingham you will be gripped by this exciting new crime fiction writer.

DEAD SILENT is book two of a new series of detective thrillers featuring D.S. Ruth Bayliss and D.I. Tom Calladine. In this second book, Calladine faces personal tragedy and startling revelations, and Ruth’s relationship with Jake Ireson develops.

Tom Calladine is a single, fifty-one-year-old detective inspector who is devoted to his job. His personal life, however, is not so successful. Having been married and divorced before the age of twenty-one has set a pattern that he finds difficult to escape. Ruth Bayliss is in her mid-thirties, plain-speaking but loyal. She wishes she had more time for the gym and a love life. She uses her demanding workload as an excuse not to try too hard with the men she meets. Her hobby is birdwatching. The series is set in the fictional village of Leesdon on the outskirts of an industrial northern English city. There is little work and a lot of crime. The bane of Calladine’s life is the Hobfield housing estate, breeding ground to all that is wrong with the area that he calls home.

Now available: DEAD LIST the third mystery featuring Detectives Bayliss and Calladine! "A serial killer with a bucket list of victims . . ."

About the Author:

I set my books in the area I both live and work in -so I know it well. This is an area that sits between two counties and between the city and the hills. So it offers a rich mix of the industrial and the countryside and all the character therein. I always planned to write crime novels - to create the characters in my books. Currently there are three books in the 'Calladine & Bayliss' series available - Dead Wrong, Dead Silent and Dead List. The fourth - Dead Lost - is currently available on pre-order. Also available is the first book in the new 'DI Greco' series - Dark Murder www.hhdurrant.blogspot.co.uk/
