Somebody knows what happened to Maxie’s sister – why are they staying silent?

If Professor Maxie Reddick is honest with herself, there’s a very personal reason she pursued a career in criminology: the unsolved murder of her sister, Susan, nearly thirty years before, and her belief that the local police force let her family down.

Now Maxie has been drafted in to help investigate a murder – nothing particularly unusual about that, except when a fingerprint at the scene provides a shocking and unexpected link to her sister’s suspicious death.

The link means that Maxie can’t be involved in the official police investigation – but Susan’s cold case is heating up, and there’s no way Maxie is going to let go now, even if she has to stand up to the people who want to make sure the past stays frozen.

Book 3 – Professor Maxie Reddick Files. Book 1 – One by One Book 2 – Wrong Sort of Girl

    What a brilliant novel. A professor of criminology also working as a police consultant. Combine that with a cold case that she is personally involved with makes a very good plot. Very well written with twists and turns with an unexpected end and a great deal of pathos. Well done.

    4.5* A real page turner

    In the third of the series, professor of criminology, Maxine Reddick is invited by her friend DS Andrew Dawson to assist in his case of a recent murder.

    At the same time Maxie has an opportunity to reopen the cold case of her sister’s unexplained death of more than 30 years ago. For years she felt guilt for her sister’s death and is now relentless in the pursues of the truth, it seems that others are determined to stop her.

    As both investigations progress, clues appear that Andrew’s current case is linked to Maxie’s sister‘s death. As she’s now personally involved, Maxie has to step back from her investigation, meanwhile her university students continue their search for the truth.

    Not absolutely necessary but I would suggest reading the Reddick Files in the correct order for full enjoyment.

    An engrossing plot within an eye catching book cover.

    This time it’s personal!

    Another fabulous Maxie Reddick story.

    This series really should be televised. They are full of twists and turns in every direction, and this one is no different.

    I hung on every word, and you will too.

    This is a serious who dunnit which will have you guessing throughout the book. There are a lot of lessons for our heroine Maxie to learn. Her lecturing suddenly becomes very personal and she can only go so far into the cold case of her sister’s death before things get too dangerous for her to continue. Yet she must. It is a tale which also shows how we all see and remember things from different perspectives. Enjoy, but prepare to read on for longer than you planned to!

    A really gripping thriller. I was hooked from start to finish and so delighted to see Maxie Reddick back again. This time her latest case is personal. A cold case that had never been solved, but was she too involved at the time to make sense of any of it. Helen really is the master of thrillers. You won’t want to put this down. A fabulous read.
