Kicking Tin is based on the crash of TWA800, which itself shared similarities with other high profile aviation disasters such as Lockerbie Pan Am 103, Iran Air 655, Siberia 1812 and most recently, Malaysian Airlines MH17 over Ukraine. It is the story of a Manchester boy who becomes a lead investigator with the NTSB in Washington. Mike Gilham is a Tin Kicker, an air crash investigator. This is his story.
Paul Charles brings north London alive as he describes the routines and eccentricities of Detective Inspector Christy Kennedy. Kennedy's intimate knowledge of his patch of London, Camden Town, is needed when a body is discovered at the bottom of Regent's Canal. Doctor Edmund Godfrey Berry is a young, successful doctor with a thriving career and a beautiful wife and child. Suicide seems unlikely but he seems to have no enemies. The only blotch on his otherwise sparkling career is the mysterious death of one of his former patients, a schoolteacher named Susanne Collins. Could these two things possibly be linked? Beneath the surface of comfortable respectability, lies a shocking secret that pulls all of the pieces together.Obsessed with the quality of his beloved cups of tea, Kennedy is an orderly, civilized man who believes that crimes are best solved in well-organized, carefully though-out ways. His life, however, is turned around when he becomes involved with a sexy, vivacious journalist, ann rea. Maybe absolute order isn't all that it's cracked up to be.
When Peter O'Browne, managing director of Camden Town Records disappears, a fire ravages his north London home and his credit card is used in Dorset, DI Christy Kennedy is called in to investigate. As well as investigating a possible murder, the DI and his team find themselves turning up chart rigging scams and blackmail."e;Fans of Lovesey's Peter Diamond series in particular, and traditional mystery fans in general, will welcome Charles's successful integration of an impossible crime element into a contemporary police procedural with a logical and clever twist ending."e; - Publishers Weekly
