    This is the first book by authors R.C. Bridgestock that I have read, in fact, I’ll be honest I hadn’t heard of the husband and wife team until I was asked If I would like an early copy of Payback and to join the blog tour. Whilst the book is truly amazing, what I really liked above everything else is how normal Detective Charley Mann is. She is a young woman behaving like one, she will tell you herself how much she enjoys her fizz and with having a father who could have been a pro-boxer she was brought up to be able to defend herself and that she most definitely can do. The book was a little slow to get going which I expected given that it is the first in a new series and we need to get to know the characters, their backstories and the location the book is set in before we can move onto the more gritty part of the plot, although there is still plenty to learn about our protagonist which is drip-fed throughout the book, especially her life with an ex who is a reporter. Charley Mann started as a young rookie in Yorkshire before being shifted off to the ‘Big Smoke’ as she calls it – London. Whilst there she gained promotion and is now back at her old station but no longer a rookie, she is the new Detective Inspector for the CID department. Charley is good at her job. She detests crime and is all for bringing the culprits to justice, no matter whose toes she treads on. As she states herself she isn’t there to be liked. Her first case actually occurs on her first day in the job and she has to lead a team she has never met before, including both seasoned detectives and newbies, on the hunt for a killer. You can certainly tell from the way the book has been written and how much detail the authors go into about the way the police work that they have plenty of experience in that department. This is one of those books that once the action gets going you find yourself hoping even for just the odd few minutes to continue the story. There is plenty of tension within the pages and enough twists to keep you guessing. I’m now looking forward to the next in the series as well as hopefully picking up the authors DI Jack Dylann series which has rave reviews.

    Really good and exciting read

    really great plot, well written and believable. The character of Charlie was well constructed and realistic. The author knows how to write a compelling thriller.
