The Chosen Ones (DC Ian Bradshaw #4) Reviews
This was completely my cup of tea - seriously, if the amazing and rather creepy cover and the enticing synopsis don't pique your interest then it ain't for you. Having not read the previous books in the series I cannot comment on those but I do think this works well as a standalone - of course, you are not privy to the backstory and relationship building that went on in those but the story here is self-contained.
I thoroughly enjoyed the relationship between Detective Ian Bradshaw and journalist, ...more
I would like to thank Netgalley and Penguin UK - Michael Joseph for a review copy of The Chosen Ones, the fourth novel to feature DS Ian Bradshaw of Durham police and journalists Tom Carney and Helen Norton.
Durham police think they may have a problem as five young women have recently gone missing, but with no evidence of a crime and nothing to link them, nobody is sure what to do. DS Ian Bradshaw is drafted in to replace the current team and he promptly recruits Tom Carney and Helen Norton to he ...more
DC Ian Bradshaw #4
Eva Dunbar wakes up in a large metal box. She has no idea how she got there or who had taken her. Eva is not the first person to disappear. Detective Ian Bradshaw has no leads.
When a body is found, the police hope the discovery will at least provide a clue that will help them find the kidnapper. This book features Detective Ian Bradshaw and journalist Tom Clancy. Bradshaw seems to get the jobs no one else wants to do. This is a fast paced, tense, gripping roller coaster of a re ...more
How have I never heard of this author before? This is one of the best books I have read this year! In my top 5 for sure! Review to come
I hadn't realised this book was a part of a series, the fourth to be precise and to be honest it didn't matter at all, this book read very well as a standalone book. Tom Carney and Helen Norton are freelance reporters who Detective Ian Bradshaw has called upon to assist the stretched Durham Constabulary on a case he is working on investigating a number of missing women. Tom and Ian went to school together and Tom and Helen are business partners. The trio work well together and these 3 main chara ...more
The Chosen Ones by Howard Linskey is a dark, scary police procedural story.
Young women are disappearing and DI Bradshaw has to investigate if they have gone of their own accord or been taken or kidnapped.
This is the fourth book in the series and I felt that I was missing the background of the professionals involved and I think this spoilt my enjoyment of the book a little.
I would like to thank NetGalley, Penguin UK - Michael Joseph for inviting me to read this e-book in exchange for an honest re ...more
This is becoming one of my favourite series. The characters of DS Ian Bradshaw, investigative reporters Tom Carney and Helen Norton appear to me as true to life characters. The friendship, their sense of humour and their compassion and determination to solve a case makes for a brilliant read. The trio are a refreshing change to a police team, as Tom uses his investigational skills, that are maybe outside of the police force's remit. There is so much going on in this book, the disappearance of yo ...more
This being the fourth in the series, usual series rules apply. Although the main story is self-contained, one of the big things about this series in my opinion is the dynamic between the three main characters and so, to get the best from them and their interconnected backstories, it would be better to start from book one and read in order.
Well, king of the unsolvable case, Ian Bradshaw, is once again called upon to take up the reins of the stalled investigation into missing women. Again, as usua ...more
