Shot in the Dark [electronic resource]

Britton, Anna2023
Run. Moonlight slants through the trees on the ancestral Dunlow estate, where a young woman runs for her life. Gunshots break the silence. The next morning, the body of seventeen-year-old student Melanie Pirt is found. DS Gabe Martin is more than ready to take the lead on her first murder case. Determined to prove herself to the cold and mysterious DI Juliet Stern, Gabe can't afford any distractions – especially not ones that wake her in the night, reminding her of a past she'd rather forget. Because while Gabe and Juliet have few leads, there are plenty of suspects. And every one of them is lying... The first in a new detective series featuring an unforgettable female detective partnership, Shot in the Dark is perfect for fans of Cara Hunter and Gytha Lodge. Praise for Shot in the Dark: 'I absolutely loved this banger of a police procedural - clever, fresh, with great characters and a killer ending. Perfect for fans of Cara Hunter and I can't wait for book 2' Jo Callaghan 'The characters were standout (especially Gabe)... I devoured it in one sitting' Angela Marsons 'A cracking new police procedural dripping with authenticity and fascinating investigative detail. A superb addition to the crime fiction scene' Marion Todd 'This is a cracking debut. Gabe and Juliet are a sharp investigative duo. A compulsive read with such an unexpected ending' Casey King 'Twisted, compulsive - a powerful and fresh new voice for the crime thriller bookshelf!' D. E. White 'Great start to a brand new crime series. Blew away the cobwebs of my reading slump that's for sure! Five stars from me!' Kerry Watts 'A twisty corkscrew of a story... My new favourite gritty detective series' A.M. Castle 'This is the best police procedural I have read in years. It's complex, gripping, believable and intensely chilling. The characterisation is razor-sharp. I could hardly turn the pages fast enough to discover what happened next.' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Reader review 'A cracking read. Had everything you could ever want with a police procedural. A completely gripping storyline with fantastic twists. Excellent.' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Reader review 'Full of twists and turns. The team dynamic between Gabe and Juliet was well thought out. I will be recommending this to other readers.' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Reader review 'Wow and wow again. An excellent police procedural... wonderfully well written. I didn't guess the perpetrator and for me, a person who reads a lot of crime novels, that is the mark of a 5 star read.' ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Reader review
