Bad Blood
Bad blood is a blend of police procedural and thriller from all time English authors Mark Sennen. A body of a six-year girl is found buried beneath a patio; later a pedophile is murdered, but when a member of Detective Inspector Charlotte is kidnapped, and some of the men killed in cold blood, it becomes apparent that the killer on the loose has no mercy towards his victim.

Also, it also becomes apparent that the killer is not making a random selection of his victim but rather in an organized manner, and soon Savage might be the next victim on the murderer’s list. She begins the hunt for the serial killer determined to get him at all cost. This book keeps the reader attention absorbed and with a fast moving plot full of twists and red herrings to ensure that the lovers of police procedural get the drama they want.

Cut Dead
Detective Inspector Savage is back, but this time round chasing a serial killer who was on the most wanted list ten years back but presumed dead. However, now he is back, and this time he means business, that is killing more people than he used to 10 years ago.

Three headless corpses are found dumped in a pit, and this case is particularly challenging for the detective and her team. The victims have the marks of a killer who butchered young girls years back a murderer who was never caught by long arms of the law.

Could have the original serial killer be on the loose or could this be a copy cat? With the endless number of bodies and increasing death counts, Inspector Charlotte is up against the case in pursuit of the serial killer before he strikes again.

Tell Tale

Unfortunately, before he can serve her cold revenge dish, a series of disturbing event begin to occur in Dartmoor. A dead woman naked body is found dumped proximal to a remote water reservoir, later, the dead woman housemate is reported missing too, and detective Charlotte knows that she must act pretty fast. Charlotte knows that the son of her Chief Constable is responsible for the death of her young daughter; however, she understands that because of the social status of the Chief Constable winning this case in a court of law would be almost impossible. In seeking justice for herself, she seeks help from a local criminal Kenny Fallon where she manages to track down her daughter killer. However, the question is will she get her revenge and at the same time avoid being caught by those who denied her justice?

In addition to her troubles, in a police department full of rogue and corrupt officials, her hunt for the serial killer will not be a downhill task for her but rather an uphill task. Also resisting her temptation to kill the killer once found would be even harder for her.

This gripping tale is fast moving but relatively easy to follow, despite changing situations and scenes. Mark provides the thoughts, emotions, and feelings of Chubber and Charlotte that is utterly convincing and the author has also made it easier for get an understanding of the contradicting urges that consistently fill the mind of a woman determined on getting revenge.

Charlotte Savage is a great creation considering her primal role in the series and comparison to other character depicted in some more recent modern detective fictions.
