A fascinating and captivating start to the new ‘Lieutenant Danielle Lewis series’ by a debut author who introduces in ‘Tenacity’, the stimulating and challenging world of a nuclear submarine. The feisty prologue introduces Dan who works in the Crimes Involving Loss of Life division, previous events have marked her as a loner, she is astute yet stubborn, and is brought in to investigate the crew of a submarine after a possible suicide on board. As I learnt more about Dan, my initial frustration with some of her decisions were washed away and left far behind. J.S. Law was in the Royal Navy and has worked on submarines, I immediately felt I was in reliable hands as I was transported into the working guts of the submarine. The enclosed, restricted space creates a tension that continues to tighten as the storyline pulses with gripping intensity. This is an exciting start to a series, and the ending most definitely leaves you wanting more! ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Tenacity by J. S. Law

The debut novel from J.S. Law, featuring new series lead Lieutenant Danielle Lewis, has been heralded as 'addictively readable' by Patricia Cornwell, 'pacey, claustrophobic and utterly thrilling' by Eva Dolan and 'breathlessly plotted' by Emlyn Rees. Two hundred metres below the surface, she will have nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. A sailor hangs himself on board a naval submarine. Although ruled a suicide Lieutenant Danielle Lewis, the Navy's finest Special Branch investigator, knows the sailor's wife was found brutally murdered only days before. Now Dan must enter the cramped confines of HMS Tenacity to interrogate the tight-knit, male crew and determine if there's a link. Standing alone in the face of extreme hostility and with a possible killer on board, Dan soon realises that she may have to choose between the truth and her own survival. The pressure is rising and Dan's time is running out...
