When Private Investigator Beverley Saunders is tasked with going undercover, she relishes the chance to disguise herself as a cleaner in order to get close to Manchester bad boy Anthony Anthony, aka 2Tone. Anthony’s neighbours are suspicious of his wealth and sick of his anti-social behaviour, and Bev’s just the woman they need to find out what’s going on behind closed doors.
As Bev begins to infiltrate Anthony’s world, she soon realises she’s in danger – and this time, she might be too far in to get out. Alongside her sidekick Doc, Bev must fight to discover the truth – but when people begin to die, she has to ask herself – is exposing Anthony worth risking her own life?
I enjoyed this, Bev’s an engaging character and her sidekick Doc reminds me of some of the men I’ve met, who struggle to function away from their computers and game consoles. Bev makes mistakes as she investigates, rendering her all the more fallible and realistic; she’s definitely no flawless super cop as in some crime fiction.
I hadn’t read the previous book in this series but I don’t think it really matters as the overriding story of Bev’s personal life isn’t essential to the plot and enough back story is given so as not to need to worry if you haven’t read it either.
