The Place for Great British Crime Drama Books

If you love a good suspense story that feature ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances then you’ll enjoy the stories written by me, Linda Coles.

The DC Jack Rutherford and DS Amanda Lacey series starts with The Controller, but don’t feel you have to start at the beginning if a title grabs you, each book works well as a standalone.

I hope you enjoy the characters in the stories; I’ve loved creating each and every one of them. Lastly, every author appreciates the reviews readers leave on Amazon, so please spare a moment to give the book a star rating and a few words when you can.
