LoveReading Expert Review of Into Deadly Storms

Suspense, secrets and a search for most-wanted criminals - this second thriller in the DS Sara Hirst series is as entertaining and atmospheric as it is chilling.

Packed with pace, teeming with tension, and driven by a well-drawn character fans of female-fronted crime fiction will almost certainly want to hear a whole lot more from, Judi Daykin’s Into Deadly Storms - the second book in the DS Sara Hirst series - is a thoroughly entertaining thriller.

Detective Sara Hirst has left the London Met and moved to Norfolk’s Serious Crime Unit, a move precipitated by the death of her estranged father who left Brixton for Norfolk some decades ago after falling out with her Jamaican-born mother (she’s inherited his cottage, and connections to the Norfolk police). When a dog-walker discovers a near-naked body wrapped in a groundsheet, Sara is first on the scene, and first to grapple with a case that turns out to have connections to a local drug-using teacher who was never able to kick a habit picked-up at university, and - in turn - connections to a wider web of dangerous criminals.

With internal battles to fight, and a string of suspects to investigate, this entertaining police procedural is a thriller, a chiller and atmospheric to boot, with lively dialogue and characterful details adding extra layers of interest.

Into Deadly Storms Synopsis


Detective Sara Hirst has moved from London to Norfolk Police’s Serious Crimes Unit. Under the brooding skies of North Norfolk, Sara faces her toughest case yet and finds that great beauty sometimes conceals great violence.

Too many secrets.

Too much pain.

Too many leads.

Dawn breaks as a dog-walker finds a dead body, half-naked and wrapped tightly in an old groundsheet.

Sara is first on the scene.

Who is the victim? And who will be next?

Sara must take on some of Britain’s most wanted criminals if she’s to find out the truth.

This crackling, twisty thriller set within the mysterious beauty of the east coast will have you flying through the pages right till the gripping end.

Fans of Joy Ellis, J.M. Dalgliesh, Matt Brolly, Rachel Lynch and Angela Marsons, get ready for your next favourite detective.
