Time is of the essence to find a missing young mother.
DI Lorne Simpkins and her partner, DS Pete Childs try to solve one of their most complex cases to date.
Having returned to work after completing her maternity leave, Kim Connell is reported missing by her concerned husband when she fails to come home that evening.
The investigation reveals a dark and sinister motive in the search for Kim.
Discover what that motive is by reading Seeking Justice - a fast-paced Justice novella.
If you are anything like me and love the Justice series, then this novella is perfect to help with that Justice fix that is needed.
Back in time with this one, where we get to see DI Lorne Simpkins team up again with Pete Childs, Lorne and Pete have a great working relationship and the banter between that is always brilliant. This time around the duo are searching for Kim Connell who has been reported missing by her concerned husband when she didn't return home from work.
Don't be put off with this being a novella, as usual the author manages to pack a brilliant storyline into a novella. It's fast paced and will keep your interest. Another great addition to the series.
For me personally I would say read this series in order for best results. Trust me you will not be disappointed.

Wowzers, another superb book.
I was a little annoyed with myself that i'd gotten behind with this series, yet when I got to the end of this book, I was thrilled i'd held on, because it meant that I could dive right into book 3.
This was a fairly quick read at just under 200 pages, but those pages have it all packed into them.
Carmen is on her way home after a night out with her 2 close friends, they had been celebrating her recent promotion. Unfortunately Carmen is involved in an accident on her way home. Di kayli Bright and her partner Dave are called to the scene. Kayli's gut instinct tell her this was no accident. But she needs to wait for reports to find out.
When another accident happens on the same stretch of road, it seems it's just possible that both incidents are connected. But how? is what Kayli and Dave need to figure out. Can Kayli keep her mind on her job and not her personal life long enough to solve the case?
This book was another brilliantly told story by this very talented author. The knack for dragging you into the story is brilliant. Mel can certainly write a damn good book.
This one will keep you guessing, and keep you interested right up to the last page, where then you'll just want more.
Book 2 ends fantastically with a 'I need the next book now' Luckily for me I have it on my kindle waiting for me to start.
The first gripping thriller in the DI Kayli Bright trilogy.
The first gripping thriller in the DI Kayli Bright trilogy.
"I want my mummy..."
The whisper seems to echo through the rooms of the abandoned house. DI Kayli Bright and her partner, DS Dave Chaplin, aren't strangers to dealing with bad cases, but no one can prepare for the emotional and mental anguish the discovery of a child's remains evokes.
Determined to find the responsible culprit, several of the dead child's family members surface on their radar of suspects...until they learn of another child's abduction.
The investigation leads Kayli to the shocking conclusion that even more children in the area have been abducted. A race against time ensues to find the children before they get lost in a sinister, evil world.
When I heard that Mel had a new book due out and that it was the start of what could potentially be a new series, I was thrilled.
I've been a huge fan of Mel Comley's books for a number of years, I have to say that the speed at which this author gets her books written and out to the public is phenomenal. The woman is a writing machine. Mel has a knack of getting her readers hooked, and any fan of this author will not want to miss out on this book, 'trust me' you really will not want to miss out.
We meet a new DI here. DI Kayli Bright, I have to say it's great meeting a new characters and getting to know them and this is a character i'm looking forward to really getting to know.
The subject is a tough one to cover, Missing children is never easy to read about, yet this is covered really well and written so brilliantly.
This is easy a 5* read for me, and I really do look forward to reading more. I know there is certainly 2 more books in this series, as it was originally written as a trilogy, but I'm hoping that looking at early reviews Mel may well be tempted to add to those 3 books and make this another longstanding successful series.
Chrissy fears she is losing her boyfriend, Kyle, so she formulates a plan to try to get their relationship back on track.
However, events drastically backfire when a car chase puts both their lives in danger.
A Romantic Suspense Novella 20,000 words.
Well I don't know what happened with this book, I actually thought i'd read it. Yet it's just turned up at the top of my list on my Kindle and when I started it, I knew I hadn't previously read it.
It's a great easy and quick read, a great story line. Chrissy feels she is losing her boyfriend Kyle, she feels Kyle is going off her, she plans to win Kyles affections back. But at what cost.
I can't believe I've only just read this book. Playing catch up is fun though.

Can the dynamic duo rescue her before she draws her final breath, or will they fall victim to a diabolical killer?
Well I've said it before, Mel Comley is a writing machine. This author flies books out like there is no tomorrow, and each one just seems to get better.
No secret I'm a huge fan of this author, and it's again a privilege to get an ARC of another superb book.
This is a short story/Novella as part of the Justice series. In this instalment we go back in time to Lorne's earlier days on the police force. Partnered up with the wonderful 'Chunky' aka Pete Childs.
For a short story it was a quick easy read but with lots going on, it holds your attention the whole way through.

A gripping and fast-paced crime thriller by a NY Times best-selling authorSuccessful entrepreneur, Ross Spalding, has everything to live for; a thriving business, a stunning new home, and a high society wedding to his beautiful fiancée to look forward to in the coming months. That is, until his life comes to an abrupt, gruesome end.
DI Hero Nelson and his team need to dig deep to find the reasons behind someone wanting Ross Spalding dead. As more people connected to Ross also die, some in suspicious circumstances, the suspect list grows beyond all expectations, until a major clue presents itself and spins the investigation off in a totally new direction.
However, Hero’s personal life is also dealt a major blow when his parents are faced with a life or death situation. He is forced to put his personal problems aside when the murderers are revealed and Hero is faced with a tight deadline in which to apprehend them.
It still amazes me at the speed in which this author can write and produce a book. Mel Comley is a writing machine. Book 4 here in the Hero series is another great addition to the Comley Library of books.
Ross Spalding has been killed and found in a field 8 miles away from his work place.
It's down to Hero Nelson and his team to find out what has happened. How a man can be brutally murdered and why? The case seems to go off in all directions, with numerous things happening for the team to tackle.
Hero is a great character, one I've grown to like, he can be a little bit, lets say 'stuck in his ways. He loves his family and really is a family man. We see his family life hit problems and you can't help want to help put things right.
Another first class read and Mel's fans will certainly not be disappointed.
Its no secret that I am a huge Mel Comley fan and have to admit I didn't even read the synopsis on this book before starting it. I knew it was from an author I trust and about a character that I enjoy reading about. So for me that's all I needed to know. I certainly wasn't disappointed, in fact I've never been disappointed with any of Mel's books and would happily recommend them for anyone who likes to get lost in a great read.
This book could very well be read as a stand alone, but for me I find it always better to read a series from the beginning, but that is just my personal liking.
Unfair Justice is a Justice series short story of 10,000 words which involves all the original characters.
In the early hours of the morning, the murdered body of a teenager, Maria Collins, in discovered close to a railway track.
With very few clues to go on, can DI Lorne Simpkins and her team uncover who the murderer is before he claims yet another victim?
A great easy read. A Justice novella that will keep any Justice fan going for a little longer.
I find it great when this author brings out a short story to keep her growing reading fans going. And it certainly does that.
Don't think that because it's a short story it takes anything away from it being a brilliant read, because believe me, it doesn't!
We also go way back in time with Lorne working with Pete, so if you are not up to date with the series, then don't worry this won't spoil anything for you.
Lorne and Pete are investigating the murder of a teenage girl. And for fear of giving anything away I'm going to stop with the story there.
What I will say though is it is a great addition to this growing series, and well worth reading.
Looking forward to more.
The third novel in the DI Sally Parker thriller series from NY Times and USA Today bestselling author M A Comley
Other reads available in this series are:
Wrong Place - #1 Women Sleuths
No Hiding Place - #1 Women Sleuths
Web of Deceit - a novella co-written by Tara Lyons
DI Sally Parker also helps solve a mystery alongside DI Lorne Warner in Twisted Justice.
DI Sally Parker has been handed a ten-year-old cold case. However, the victim, Aisha Thomas, isn't just a member of the public--she's a serving police officer's wife.
During the original investigation, the suspects disappeared before they could be questioned. Now fresh evidence has been uncovered, proving the two suspects to be innocent. Sally has to start over at the beginning. She uncovers a few surprises that were either overlooked. . . or purposefully ignored by the original investigator.
When the case threatens Sally's fledgling romantic relationship with pathologist Simon Bracknall, she begins to suspect someone is determined to hinder her chance at happiness--as well as solving Aisha's murder.
Is Sally getting close to revealing the killer or has she stumbled across something even more sinister?
I have to start with the fact that it really does amaze me at the speed in which Mel can get books out, without any of them feeling rushed or falling below the quality we have come to know and love.
I am a HUGE M A Comley fan. I have read almost all her books over a number of years, and each time a new one is due out, I still get excited about reading it.
Here we are again, another outing with DI Sally Parker. I feel like i'm still getting to know Sally, but after reading this book I have added Sally now to my list of fictional characters that I really do like. In this book Sally has really grown on me, and I really can't wait to read more about her and see just what happens with her in future books.
As the title suggests, Sally and her team are given a Cold Case to review. A case that is ten years old, so where on earth do you start. Well it seems, you start right back at the beginning.
Ten years ago the wife of a police officer was murdered. The case soon takes on a big turn around when it is discovered that the two suspects in the original case maybe had nothing to do with it.
Have mistakes been made, is it bad policing or is just that with new DNA evidence coming to light that it puts things into a different light.
I can safely say that throughout the book I had no idea of who the killer could have been, and It certainly took me by surprise when I found out who it was. I think this was brilliantly done, I loved that I had no idea at all.
It took me a little while to get the chance to pick this up and read it, and once I did I read it in no time, there was no chance of me putting it down once started. As with all Mel's books. I got lost in the pages and devoured it.
I have no hesitations in giving this book the 5 stars it so deserves, and I really can't wait for another outing with Sally Parker.
No one is safe... not even the police.
DI Hero Nelson is used to violent crime but this one is personal. When he's called to a crime scene he discovers the victims are two police officers one of whom is a good friend.
Determined to track down the killer, he’s dealt another blow as the body count continues to rise. To catch the killer before he strikes again, Hero calls upon the public for help. But when the criminal ups the ante by taking hostages, he soon regrets his actions.
Can Hero and the police catch the murderer before more innocent victims are hurt?
Hero must apprehend a killer who is hiding in plain sight before the time runs out
It is no secret at all that I am a huge fan of this amazing author. Her writing is first class, I just can't help but wonder how the hell Mel keeps coming up with these stories and Idea's and each one just gets better and better.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and flew through it in no time. Wanting and needing to keep reading, this book will certainly hold your attention and keep you up all night until you finish it.
Hero Nelson book 3, I'm really liking Hero, I have to say sometimes when I love an authors series and they do another on, I do sometimes wonder if I will like it as much, but this one has certainly confirmed it's possible to write more than one series of books. I always enjoy books when they are based in and around Manchester, I love it when I can actually see in my mind the places that are featured. I always find it adds to making the books feel more real.
This book starts off with a bang, literally. A killer is out there, and he needs catching, he needs catching real quick. He has killed 2 serving police officers when Hero is set the task of finding the killer, its a race against time before the body count starts to build. Can Hero and his team work miracles, because they are going to have to, to catch this evil killer.
It's personal for Hero, not only is one of the men killed a serving officer, he's also part of Hero's TA team. But when the Killer takes a hostage then Hero and his team really need to up their game.
A fantastic read, and any fans of crime will love this one.
A Christmas short story of 10,000 involving all the old members of the team.
DI Lorne Simpkins and her partner DS Pete Childs encounter a dangerous gang of Santas who plan on creating havoc on the streets of London on Christmas Eve.
Pete is persuaded to go undercover to foil the gang's audacious plan.
What a great read. This is a brilliant short story, a great addition to the Justice series.
In this book, Lorne Simpkins and Pete Childs are trying to catch a team of Santa's that are up to no good.
The team of Santa's are planning a big robbery. It's down to Lorne and her team to stop these thieves.
The only way to get these thieves it to join them. And Lorne very kindle volunteers Pete to go undercover.
A perfect role for Pete.
It was great traveling back in time, to the early Justice. This is the perfect addition to the series.
Anyone who has read any of my other reviews, will know that I'm a huge Justice fan. And loved having this one to read. It really helped with my Justice fix.
