    Just Fabulous!

    This book was my first foray into the work of Cath Staincliffe and I must say I was mightily impressed. Homeless Colette discovers a dead baby, triggering a disturbing murder investigation that features the return of DI Donna Bell and the volatile DC Jade Bradshaw of Manchester police. As the detectives find lies and obstruction at every turn in a town whose community is balanced on the precipice of poverty and hardship, the two must follow their instincts and draw on all of their reserves to solve the case. Both Donna and Jade were defenceless against the devastation that the investigation had on their personal lives. Both characters are very well put across by Cath Staincliffe, Donna's assiduousness contrasting wonderfully with Jade’s detachment and unmindfulness. This timely piece of crime fiction is written with compassion and sincerity in a story that incorporates tragedy, child exploitation, rape, assault, suicide, abuse, lies and deception. The up-to-the-minute plot alongside the hard hitting and gritty narrative help to make Quiet Acts of Violence a standout story. An emotional, very highly recommended read. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Little, Brown Book Group UK/ Constable via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.
