 A DS Kite novel – a city detective joins the mid-Wales force
bringing new insights and ruffling country feathers

Newly promoted DS Julie Kite is at a crossroads. Her husband’s desire for a different life takes her away from urban Manchester and its inner city problems to tranquil mid-Wales. It is to be a clean slate for them both. On her first day at Builth Wells police station, Julie is thrust unexpectedly into the centre of an investigation into a suspicious death in a remote farming community.

Back in Manchester, Stephen Collins is set free from HMP Strangeways. Bible in hand he makes his way to mid-Wales, the scene of the heinous crime for which he was imprisoned, in order to confront those who had a hand in his incarceration.

The twists and turns of the investigation into solicitor Gareth Watkin’s death force DS Kite to confront her own demons as well as those of her rural community and, ultimately, to uncover the lengths to which we’ll go to protect our families…

Remember No More by Jan Newton

Remember No MoreShe was used to the helter-skelter world of Manchester, but when she received a promotion and her husband desired to get away to the country, DS Julie Kite was determined that she would make a go of it, for herself as well as her marriage.

Jan Newton’s REMEMBER NO MORE brings a big town cop, used to the big town crimes into a world where small town minds and petty crimes are the norm until a case the small town boys are not equipped to handle gives Julie a chance to shine and prove her worth as an experienced investigator. One suspicious death is about to lead down a trail of nightmarish proportions when one ex-con returns to the scene of his crime, claiming to have found God and seeking vengeance against those who put him away. Not only will DS Kite be forced to face the demons that exist in the world, but the demons that exist within her own soul as she discovers how far one will go to protect their own.

Ms. Newton writes with grit, weaving mystery and action together with the personal lives of her characters. Flavored with a style the British are famous for, there is a feeling of darkness and unease throughout this often gruesome tale, lightening only long enough for a sprinkle of humor, while true human flaws and frailties that are exposed and left raw. A captivating read with an atmosphere that will leave readers hanging on for every twist!

I received an ARC edition from Jan Newton in exchange for my honest review.
