The icy rain sprayed across the lake in shards of sharp splinters. Kaye's skin smarted and dribbles of water slid inside her clothes. She was gagged and bound. And the only person who knew where to find her wasn't coming back...Fifty miles away in Cambridge town centre a deeply disturbed young woman is standing by a payphone. She knows she often feels compelled to do harmful things and is driven by a desire to make a call. DC Gary Goodhew is one of the detectives assigned to find Kaye and when her body is discovered the only clue to the potential murderer is a woman's voice on his answerphone saying, 'Kaye isn't the first and won't be the last...' Praise for "Cambridge Blue": "You are pulled relentlessly in as Bruce racks up the tension. Menacing and insidious, this is a great novel". (R.J. Ellory). "An exciting debut from a very promising new talent". (Paul Johnston). "A fast-paced gritty tale guaranteed to have you hooked from beginning to end". ("Cambridgeshire Pride"). "Meaty and deeply plotted". ("Morning Star"). "DC Gary Goodhew could just develop into a worthy successor to those venerables of the police procedural now drawing their pensions". ("Tribune"). "A gripping tale of murder and mystery". ("Cambridge Style").

“I love this series”

The Calling is the third in the DC Goodhew series, and was published earlier this year by Constable & Robinson. Although The Calling could be read as a stand-alone story, I would certainly recommend that the first... More
