The Dark Side of Blue
The glamorous heiress to one of London’s wealthiest fortunes is reported missing. Her desperate parents haven’t heard from her since she attended a high-society function at the Dorchester. Case-hardened pragmatist, DCI Trent Chambers, is less convinced her disappearance is cause for concern.
But then the body of a young woman is discovered. Bound. Gagged. Tortured. Murdered.
Media speculation grows frenzied. Powerful political interests pile impossible pressure on an already stretched Met Police Command. Dubious decisions stalk the investigation.
As intensity increases, DCI Chambers must fight to stay focused and follow the investigation wherever it leads. Even if that’s into the dark heart behind London’s carefully manufactured façade.
But he knows he must move quickly. All evidence suggests the depraved killer will surely strike again. Soon…
I’ve been an avid consumer of crime fiction from a very young age. Starting with Tintin, then moving on to The Hardy Boys, I was soon devouring every book, story or novel I could get my hands on. By mid-teens I was penning the odd short story, before writing my first novel aged about nineteen. Sadly, that was lost when an old family computer got recycled. Sad for me, that is. Definitely no loss to the vast expanse of human knowledge towering on the shelves of libraries the world over.
Fast forward a few years of mild distractions like university, career and parenthood, and I’m now the author of the DCI Trent Chambers Series. Book One of the series, The Dark Side of Blue, was published in Summer 2021. I’m currently working on the second instalment.
