Beneath the Ashes (Detective Inspector Will Jackman #2)Beneath the Ashes by Jane Isaac

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When a body is discovered in a burnt-out barn in the Warwickshire countryside, DI Will Jackman is called to investigate.Nancy Faraday wakes up on the kitchen floor. The house has been broken into and her boyfriend is missing. As the case unravels, DI Jackman realises that nothing is quite as it appears and everyone, it seems, has a secret.
I loved DI Jackman and his complex personal life as well as his complex professional life. At every turn there were decisions to be made, at every turn there were secrets to uncover. The setting of Stratford Upon Avon was evocative and also added another layer of realism to this clever police procedural. Ms Isaac ratchets up the tension as you race to the conclusion, which does not disappoint.
