For all lovers of the British detective/thriller/crime genre, there is a new name on the scene, who I am sure we shall be hearing more from. Danielle Ramsay, is introducing us to a new crime solving character, Inspector Jack Brady, in her debut novel ‘Broken Silence’
Synopsis – Words taken from the book
Early one morning in the seaside resort of Whitley Bay, the lifeless body of a young girl, Sophie Washington, is found brutally murdered – her face mutilated beyond recognition.
Back on active duty after an enforced break in his less-than-glittering career, DI Jack Brady is barely holding it together. With his personal life resembling a car crash, his problems only intensify when his close colleague Jimmy Matthews reveals that he was with the victim on the night of the murder.
Brady’s loyal deputy, DS Harry Conrad and police psychologist, Amelia Jenkins are assigned with him to crack the case. But as Brady delves deeper into Sophie’s life he discovers a far from rosy picture.
Brady must ask some tough questions if he is to discover the truth. Questions not only about Sophie, but also about himself-and what he finds out isn’t going to be pretty…..
About Danielle Ramsay:
Danielle Ramsay is a Scot, living in a small seaside town in the North-East of England.
Always a storyteller, it was only after initially following an academic career lecturing in literature that she found her place in life and began to write creatively full-time.
Always on the go, always passionate in what she is doing, Danielle fills her days with horse-riding, running and murder by proxy.
Danielle was short-listed for the CWA Debut Dagger Award, in both 2009 and 2010, but was narrowly pipped at the post on both occasions.
Her latest novel, has a title – ‘Broken Bodies’ and is well on the way to being ready for publishing in 2011.
I have purchased ‘Broken Silence’ for my father, so have yet to read and air my thoughts about it, but a follow-up post will appear shortly.
If anyone has already read the book, please feel free to start a discussion about it.
