Never Forget – Lisa Cutts – DC Nina Foster Book 1 – Genre – Crime / Police
Following a frenzied stabbing DC Nina Foster is drafted into her first murder investigation…
A brutal serial killer is stalking the streets. As the body count increases and the force’s biggest-ever manhunt gets underway, Nina is determined to find the murderer.
But when the story of her own traumatic childhood comes to light – a past she’s worked hard to hide – her role on the team is threatened.
Suddenly her job, her peace of mind and her safety are all in danger.
Fast-paced, and with a shocking twist, this compelling crime debut by police insider Lisa Cutts takes us to the heart of the Major Incident Room – introducing a gutsy new heroine to the crime scene.
My Review: This book has been sitting on my kindle for ages and to be honest I don’t know why I haven’t read it sooner. If you love a police procedural book which is both authentic and engaging and a feisty female detective with a wicked sense of humour then you must read this book. Nina Foster is a fascinating character who despite having a deeply troubled past doesn’t let that define her (unlike other fictional female detectives ). Lisa Cutts obviously knows her stuff and the occasional flashes of her wicked humour made this book stand out from all the others. I loved it and now I’m off to download book 2 as I need to know what happens next.
