Book 2 of 7 in The DI Nick Dixon Crime Series (7 Book Series) #HeadInTheSand
Book 2 in the Di Nick Dixon Crime Series. I'm pretty new to this series, having only read book one and two so, but I consider myself quite lucky as I can dive into the rest of the series so far at my leisure. No hanging around waiting for the next one.
I've enjoyed this book, I'm slowly getting to know characters and making my mind up of what I think of them.
A head is found in the sand at a golf course. It's down to the team to figure out the who, why and how. And it's done very well.
When the case seems to be linked to a case decades before the story really gets going and makes you think.
Very well written and thoroughly enjoyable. Gorey but not to over done. A crime thriller to keep you guessing, and will keep you turning the pages.
