Two victims- Helen Durrant- Crime 


Agnes is a practice nurse at a GP surgery. She likes to help out the homeless and needy
when she can and also helps at the local homeless hostel. When she is found dead
with a bullet through her head things don’t add up as everyone appeared to like her
but there are rumours of her making a profit which adds to the confusion. When the
scene is investigated another body is found close by, again of a woman killed by a
bullet around two months before hand. DCI Rachel King is trying to put the pieces
together whilst also trying to keep away from her past in the form of an ex-criminal
who happens to be the father of one of her children. A secret she would rather not
reveal. As ever Helen quickly gets the reader into  both the plot and the characters,
so skillul is her writing. You quickly feel as if you know these people and that you are
a bystander at a safe distance. Nothing that is going to give you nightmares or put
you off your dinner (other than a murder or two!) and a smile along the way. Well
rounded characters that have that extra something to them- not just a part of the
plot. There are subplots and threads so although this would stand alone it is better
read as part of the series to give some of the back story. (This is number two in the
series.) I very much look forward to DCI Rachel’s next case.

HELEN H. DURRANT OVER 750,000 books sold of her Calladine & Bayliss and DI Greco Series I’m one of the ‘baby boomer’ generation. I was born in Edinburgh to an English father
and Scottish mother. My father was from the North West of England and this was where
the family settled. I know the area well, both the good and the bad, and so I set my books here. Sitting
between two counties, Lancashire and Yorkshire, and between the city and the hills,
it offers a rich mix of the industrial and the countryside and all the character therein.
I always planned to write crime novels — to create the characters in my books. Since
my retirement from a busy teaching job in FE, this is what I’ve done — almost to
exclusion of anything else! I have a grown-up family and five grandchildren. They see me as something of an
eccentric — always on my laptop writing away. Writing is something of a second
career and, despite having a bus pass, keeps me busy, young and tuned in the
world as it currently is. Twitter @hhdurrant Facebook       https://www.facebook.com/helen.durrant.12 Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Calladine-Bayliss-Detective-Novels/
