BROKEN is the second book in the DI Kate Burrows series: the only time Sunday Times bestseller Martina Cole has written from the perspective of the Old Bill. The 'undisputed queen of crime writing' (Guardian), Martina's unique, powerful storytelling will appeal to fans of Karin Slaughter and Patricia Cornwell.
Children in Grantley are disappearing. At first they are found unscathed, but when one meets a dark end DI Kate Burrows knows the clock is ticking.
Pushed to her limits, Kate needs the support of her lover now more than ever. But ex-gangster Patrick Kelly has troubles of his own.
It's her toughest case yet, but Kate will stop at nothing to solve it. Even if it breaks her.
Broken is the second book to feature Di Kate Burrows. I first read this book Eleventy billion years ago. Or maybe around 17 years ago when it first come out.
I have decided to do a re read of this series so far, ready for Martina's new Book Damaged which is due out later this month. Having just finished the first book in my reread marathon, I couldn't wait to start this one. It's funny how much of a book you actually forget, and it was great being back with DI Kate Burrows and Patrick Kelly.
This is proving to be a tough case for Kate, Children are going missing, It seems their mothers are seen trying to get rid of them.
The children turn up and of course the Mothers deny everything.
Can Kate and her team figure out what is going on, can they get anywhere with such a complex case, when it turns out things really are not as they seem, the case ramps up a level, and finding the answers become a little tougher.
As well as work mounting up and becoming difficult, Kate is faced with problems with here gangster lover Patrick Kelly. Can this bond they think they have together ride out the storm, before the storm turns nasty.
Another gripping read, and onto the next one, Hard Girls for me next.
