DCI Jeff Temple of
the Major Investigations Team and some of his colleagues are having a drink
after work, aware of the television reporting a pile up on the M27.Jeff was reflecting that he glad he lived in
the city when his boss Chief Superintendent Mike Beresford telephones him that
one of the dead motorists at the crash site has been shot.
The scene is one of utter devastation and it soon becomes clear
to Jeff that this is not a one off.Only
a highly trained sniper could have effected the shot.And there is worse to come, on the next night
on another motorway even more are killed. No one knows who he/she is or the
motive for such attacks.But what is
clear is that anyone driving on a motorway during the rush hour could be a
Investigation and working with Counter Terrorism Command
produces a couple of suspects, but they are all still working in the dark.
This is the first book I have read by James Raven and he
certainly knows how to rack up the tension.I was gripped from the first page and the action never let up.A thoroughly satisfying read, and one that
remains with you. Since reading this book when travelling on a motorway I find
myself scanning the bridges – is anyone up there with a grudge.
For a fast paced action thriller this is a must read. Highly
