Time to Die by Alex Howard
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The start of an East London/Essex-based police procedural series starring a tough DI Hanlan who is quite prepared to break rules to get to the truth. Her boss fears for her safety in her latest case and assigns a Turkish ex-boxer to watch out for her. They make a great team hopefully to go forward into future books. This one concerns paedophilia, corruption, rape and murder, sickening stuff forcefully portrayed. It is very good.

If you like Alex Howard you might also like to read books by Lynda La Plante, Helen Giltrow and M.J. Arlidge.

Synopsis

Time to Die by Alex Howard

Detective Inspector Hanlon. She'll break but she won't bend. A woman with a habit of breaking the rules and a fierce loyalty to the few people she respects. Her boss, Corrigan. Looks like a street copper promoted above his ability. Underestimate him at your peril. Enver Demirel. Known in the boxing ring as Iron Hand. Now soft and gone to seed. But he would do anything for Hanlon. Now the kidnap of a 12-year-old diabetic boy has blown the case of some missing children wide apart and the finger is pointing at the heart of the Met. Corrigan sends in the only cop in his team who would care more about the life of a boy than about her own career. Hanlon. And then he sends Demirel to spy on her...

Reviews

'I loved Hanlon. TIME TO DIE was brilliantly done, authentic and doesn't pull any punches... The story twists and turns its way to an edge of the seat conclusion... scintillating and heartfelt'
