In the third instalment of the Wakefield series, DI Colin Strong and best friend, journalist Bob Souter must work together to bring the guilty to justice before time runs out.
TROPHIES, first in the acclaimed Wakefield Series
When DI Colin Strong interviews a man on suspicion of handling stolen goods, he's convinced he's heard their voice before. Nearly 25 years earlier, the tape of Wearside Jack taunted West Yorkshire Police and the suspect fits the profile. Then the body of a known burglar shows up and a mysterious metal case is discovered at the scene which leads to the realisation that a series of attacks on women over the previous twenty years had gone unconnected.
Strong turns to his close friend, journalist Bob Souter, and embarks on an awkward alliance to probe areas he is unable to explore openly. As the murder suspects start to disappear, Strong must discover just who the shadowy figure enciting fear and panic amongst those he encounters is. Strong wants to bring a murderer to justice and Souter is hungry for a story. Who will get to the truth first and can their friendship remain intact?
"TROPHIES moves at a cracking pace. Full of believable well-drawn characters in an equally believable Yorkshire setting where that county's most notorious crime spree still impinges on DI Strong and Bob Souter's current investigations. First in a series by this writer to watch. Perfect for TV." Sally Spedding, Crime and Thriller writer.
"An intriguing detective story, full of twists and turns." Jane Isaac, Crime writer.
An embarrassing DNA match to an unsolved rape and murder twenty years before means DI Colin Strong has to use his best diplomatic tactics.
Simultaneously, journalist Bob Souter is tasked with writing about that same case to re-focus public attention. Will the newspaper’s actions help or hinder the police?
Meanwhile, Strong’s team has two separate murder enquiries to run.
With their friendship under duress, will Souter and Strong be able to work together?
August 1976 and it seems as though the long hot summer will never end. Early morning at Clacton on the north Essex coast, a light aircraft takes off from the airstrip but struggles for height and crashes into the sea. First on the scene, Sgt Cyril Claydon pulls the pilot’s body from the wreckage. But something else catches his eye. A bulky package wrapped in black plastic is on the passenger seat. Returning to investigate, he makes a grim discovery – another body. And so begins a series of events that puts him and others in danger as he is drawn into the investigation, having to work alongside DI ‘Dick’ Barton, a man with totally alien attitudes.
Can they work together?
