Hunter's Force by Val Penny- Crime/Police procedural
A young woman is found horrifically mutilated in a young man’s flat. The young man
in question is Cameron and his father just happens to be in the police. He says a large
man brought the woman there a few weeks ago and gave him money to feed her on
the orders of Cameron’s boss who owns the flat. On questioning the owner knows
nothing about the woman. Detective Inspector Hunter Wilson wants to head this up
himself rather than call in MIT. A man is released from prison and being collected by
his son announces that not only has he bought two very profitable betting shops
whilst inside but that they are moving into a 12 bedroomed home. Someone
however wants Hunter out of the picture and when things get rather rough he decides
things have to change. This is a series of crimes and suspects cleverly intermingled.
I liked Hunter- a force to be reckoned with and a personable one. This is number
three in the series and not having read the others this does stand happily alone.
Set in Edinburgh, there are wonderful descriptions of the city.
A very interesting enjoyable read.

Hunter's team must work closely with MIT, with or without him, to solve the murder in this taught c
