NEW RELEASE - SOLID PROOF


When Military Police Detective Tom Crane is called out to the scene of the disappearance of army wife Janey Cunningham, his only clue is a red stiletto shoe dropped on the garage floor. In a leafy borough of London, Tyler Wells begins to notice small intrusions into his life - a flower left on his wife's bed, and silent phone calls to his office. Blissfully unaware of his ties to a far darker past, Tyler is thrust blindly to the forefront of a high profile murder investigation that threatens to condemn him to a life of imprisonment.

 the NEW Sgt Major Crane crime thriller

 

Two murders 10 years apart.

An injustice wrapped in a cordon of lies.

An SIB detective determined to uncover the truth

When Carol Newton was murdered 10 years ago her killer was spirited out of the country by the British Army. But now, it seems, he's back. Another young army wife Melanie Green has been murdered in the space place, in the same way. A stiletto dagger plunged into her heart.

Sgt Major Crane, a Branch detective with the Royal Military Police, must battle against an army that is closing ranks to protect their reputation, their killer and their indiscretions. Can Crane blow the case wide open and find the killer and his conspirators? Will he achieve justice for the two women? Or will the army win - again?

“Crane is a charismatic leading man and is one of the more interesting new genre protagonists I’ve encountered in quite a while!” Chris Algernon.
