Detective Inspector Lorne Simpkins is back on the force. Before she can get comfortable with her new partner, newly-promoted DS Katy Foster, the two are assigned a tragic murder case that looks like a robbery gone wrong. However, when another wealthy footballer's family meets the same deadly fate within twenty-four hours, it is clear the crimes involve something far more sinister. Keeping her focus on unravelling the complex case isn't easy for Lorne when she learns news that throws her personal life into a spin--her fiancé, M16 agent Tony Warner, is involved in a dangerous covert operation in Afghanistan. But innocent people are dying on her patch, and someone must catch the killers. Lorne can't allow this Foul Justice to prevail.
This is another great novel by M.A. Comley, the fourth in her Justice Series. I would suggest whoever wishes to read this series to start from the first instalment - Cruel Justice, since all characters and storylines develop through the novels.
In Foul Justice, D.I. Lorne Simpkins is back on the force after an absence of two years. With no chance to settle down in her job, she is immediately faced with problems from day one. She is handed over a major gruesome robbery/murder case in which wealthy footballers' families have been targeted. She also has a new partner to contend with, Sergeant Katy Foster who didn't exactly click with her from the beginning. Lorne is also very concerned about the love of her life, Tony, who has been dispatched to Afghanistan on a secret dangerous mission.
In this novel we see Lorne's investigative skills at their best. The author paints a picture showing Lorne's capability of identifying and understanding other persons' situations, feelings, thoughts and attitudes.
Another thumbs up for M.A.Comley !!!
