    Behind Dead Eyes is the superbly accomplished follow-up to No Name Lane featuring the disillusioned and out of favour cop, DC Ian Bradshaw forming an unlikely alliance with journalist turned true-crime writer, Tom Carney and junior crime reporter, Helen Norton. In the wake of the unoff...

    Behind Dead Eyes is the second book in a series that follows three main characters. It actually works really well as a stand alone but as I love No Name Lane, the first in the series, I highly recommend reading them both. Helen, seemed more in the back ground in the first novel but ...

    I enjoyed the first book in this series (No Name Lane) and was looking forward to what came next for both Tom Carney and Helen Norton. As for Ian Bradshaw, well maybe not so much! When a body is found and is unrecognisable, Detective Ian Bradshaw is the copper working on the case. Ian ...

    This is the second book in this trilogy set in the North East of England during the nineties, the first being No Name Lane. It can be read as a standalone but you will definitely be missing out if you don?t read both! This book just grabbed me right from the very first page and ju...

    Just not feeling this one at all. Got about 120 pages in and stopped caring. It might just be that I'm not in a crime-fiction-y mood! ...

    An involving, slow-burning mystery which makes such good use of its 1990s' setting. ...

    I enjoyed this a lot. The Ian Bradshaw books are very well done indeed and hope for more to come. One due out I think. A man in jail for the murder of his lover approaches a journalist (Tom) in the hope of his leading an investigation to prove his innocence. In another story a councill...

    Behind dead eyes by Howard Linskey. There is a burnt body of a girl. The police can't identify her as her fingers has been chopped off. Detective Ian Bradshaw can't catch the killer if no one can Id the victim. Somewhere out the is a missing young woman who may hold the answers. Thi...

    I read this with my book club #Novel Ideas and found it an easy read for crime fiction fans. The story of two intertwined secret investigations involving reporters and police was an interesting setup for this kind of novel. I found the character of DCI Bradshaw to be the typical Alpha ...

    I was reading this as a standalone book as I had not read the previous one and I can honestly say that did not take anything away from getting to know the characters. Tom Carney was a reporter although now he has no job and when a convicted murderer asks him to look into his case he de...

    I read this book before the first in the series, and some references were made to previous cases etc. It did not spoil this book though as it involved new cases, and the characters were described well in this book that I felt I wasn't missing out. I will be reading the previous book th...

    Thanks to Penguin and Netgalley for the ARC of Behind Dead Eyes in return for an honest review. This is the first of Howard Linskey's books that I have read and I felt that I was playing catch up for a while trying to get to grips with the characters and back story, this made it diffi...

    Firstly I'd like to thank NetGalley for allowing me to read the ARC book for free in return for an honest review. Having read the first in this series of books No Name Lane I was thrilled to have the opportunity to read the second book. Set around the discovery of a young woman's bo...

    When writing a book that?s crowded, not in a bad way as many will assume but in a good way where there?s always something going on, something interesting and eye opening and crucial to the plot, when writing this sort of book, you need to treat it with grace, delicacy and balance a...

    Very enjoyable read. Not an unputdownable, nevertheless, a good story. I was worried I hadn't read the 1st in the DC Ian Bradshaw series, but I needn't have been. It's written very well that you don't have to know about any of the characters backgrounds from the previous story. Not all...

    I really really wanted to like this book, being from the north east and familiar with the setting time and place. But.. it is jam packed full of dialogue and a lot of the dialogue is made up of lengthy monologues which caused me to instantly switch off. Way too much telling and not eno...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book more than I thought,I understand why people say maybe read No Name Land first but it's for the characters back story's more than anything. I would recommend this book, it's an easy read and the story is good. I'll definitely be buying his first and thi...

    For me it turned ugly as it approached the end. There are some topics that just aren't to my taste. ...

    Whoa what a book. Total gripping and amazing I'm gonna read rest of the book of this series. It's truly amazing i loved it and completely lost in it. ...

    I liked this book due to the fact that it was set in the North-East and, therefore, I could easily relate to the setting. Due to being a mere 5 years old when the book was actually set, it was interesting for me to get a little bit of history drip-fed through the narrative about my loc...

    This is the second in this series and, although the main story is self-contained within this book, the main characters have a bit of a backstory from book one so I would advise you to read that first. Although, you'll be OK if you don't as enough fill in is included in this book for yo...

    Behind Dead Eyes is the second book in a series that follows three main characters. It actually works really well as a stand alone but as I love No Name Lane, the first in the series, I highly recommend reading them both. Helen, seemed more in the back ground in the first novel but ...

    I enjoyed the first book in this series (No Name Lane) and was looking forward to what came next for both Tom Carney and Helen Norton. As for Ian Bradshaw, well maybe not so much! When a body is found and is unrecognisable, Detective Ian Bradshaw is the copper working on the case. Ian ...

    This is the second book in this trilogy set in the North East of England during the nineties, the first being No Name Lane. It can be read as a standalone but you will definitely be missing out if you don?t read both! This book just grabbed me right from the very first page and ju...

    I enjoyed this a lot. The Ian Bradshaw books are very well done indeed and hope for more to come. One due out I think. A man in jail for the murder of his lover approaches a journalist (Tom) in the hope of his leading an investigation to prove his innocence. In another story a councill...

    Behind dead eyes by Howard Linskey. There is a burnt body of a girl. The police can't identify her as her fingers has been chopped off. Detective Ian Bradshaw can't catch the killer if no one can Id the victim. Somewhere out the is a missing young woman who may hold the answers. Thi...

    I was reading this as a standalone book as I had not read the previous one and I can honestly say that did not take anything away from getting to know the characters. Tom Carney was a reporter although now he has no job and when a convicted murderer asks him to look into his case he de...

    I read this book before the first in the series, and some references were made to previous cases etc. It did not spoil this book though as it involved new cases, and the characters were described well in this book that I felt I wasn't missing out. I will be reading the previous book th...

    When writing a book that?s crowded, not in a bad way as many will assume but in a good way where there?s always something going on, something interesting and eye opening and crucial to the plot, when writing this sort of book, you need to treat it with grace, delicacy and balance a...

    Very enjoyable read. Not an unputdownable, nevertheless, a good story. I was worried I hadn't read the 1st in the DC Ian Bradshaw series, but I needn't have been. It's written very well that you don't have to know about any of the characters backgrounds from the previous story. Not all...

    I really really wanted to like this book, being from the north east and familiar with the setting time and place. But.. it is jam packed full of dialogue and a lot of the dialogue is made up of lengthy monologues which caused me to instantly switch off. Way too much telling and not eno...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book more than I thought,I understand why people say maybe read No Name Land first but it's for the characters back story's more than anything. I would recommend this book, it's an easy read and the story is good. I'll definitely be buying his first and thi...

    For me it turned ugly as it approached the end. There are some topics that just aren't to my taste. ...

    Whoa what a book. Total gripping and amazing I'm gonna read rest of the book of this series. It's truly amazing i loved it and completely lost in it. ...

    I liked this book due to the fact that it was set in the North-East and, therefore, I could easily relate to the setting. Due to being a mere 5 years old when the book was actually set, it was interesting for me to get a little bit of history drip-fed through the narrative about my loc...

    This is the second in this series and, although the main story is self-contained within this book, the main characters have a bit of a backstory from book one so I would advise you to read that first. Although, you'll be OK if you don't as enough fill in is included in this book for yo...

    Behind Dead Eyes is the second book in a series that follows three main characters. It actually works really well as a stand alone but as I love No Name Lane, the first in the series, I highly recommend reading them both. Helen, seemed more in the back ground in the first novel but ...

    A body is found with its identity extinguished in a shocking manner. Detective Ian Bradshaw will not be able to catch the killer if the victim can not be identified. Does a missing young woman hold the key to unravel the answers? Helen Norton is a Web Journalist about to uncove...

    I enjoyed the first book in this series (No Name Lane) and was looking forward to what came next for both Tom Carney and Helen Norton. As for Ian Bradshaw, well maybe not so much! When a body is found and is unrecognisable, Detective Ian Bradshaw is the copper working on the case. Ian ...

    This is the second book in this trilogy set in the North East of England during the nineties, the first being No Name Lane. It can be read as a standalone but you will definitely be missing out if you don?t read both! This book just grabbed me right from the very first page and ju...

    Just not feeling this one at all. Got about 120 pages in and stopped caring. It might just be that I'm not in a crime-fiction-y mood! ...

    An involving, slow-burning mystery which makes such good use of its 1990s' setting. ...

    I enjoyed this a lot. The Ian Bradshaw books are very well done indeed and hope for more to come. One due out I think. A man in jail for the murder of his lover approaches a journalist (Tom) in the hope of his leading an investigation to prove his innocence. In another story a councill...

    Behind dead eyes by Howard Linskey. There is a burnt body of a girl. The police can't identify her as her fingers has been chopped off. Detective Ian Bradshaw can't catch the killer if no one can Id the victim. Somewhere out the is a missing young woman who may hold the answers. Thi...

    I read this with my book club #Novel Ideas and found it an easy read for crime fiction fans. The story of two intertwined secret investigations involving reporters and police was an interesting setup for this kind of novel. I found the character of DCI Bradshaw to be the typical Alpha ...

    I was reading this as a standalone book as I had not read the previous one and I can honestly say that did not take anything away from getting to know the characters. Tom Carney was a reporter although now he has no job and when a convicted murderer asks him to look into his case he de...

    I read this book before the first in the series, and some references were made to previous cases etc. It did not spoil this book though as it involved new cases, and the characters were described well in this book that I felt I wasn't missing out. I will be reading the previous book th...

    Told from the perspective of three different characters; Tom, a True Crime writer, Ian, a Detective Sergeant and Helen, an Investigative Journalist. Together they are trying to solve 3 crimes; the identity of a burned female body, the disappearance of a young woman and the innocence...

    Thanks to Penguin and Netgalley for the ARC of Behind Dead Eyes in return for an honest review. This is the first of Howard Linskey's books that I have read and I felt that I was playing catch up for a while trying to get to grips with the characters and back story, this made it diffi...

    Firstly I'd like to thank NetGalley for allowing me to read the ARC book for free in return for an honest review. Having read the first in this series of books No Name Lane I was thrilled to have the opportunity to read the second book. Set around the discovery of a young woman's bo...

    A cracking read! Thanks @HowardLinskey I can't wait for the next one ...

    Library audible (To remind me of the story) Tom Carney started his career as a journalist for a provincial newspaper in his home area, then he lands a job with a national tabloid that he ends up losing when the person he has a story about threatens the newspaper with libel action and ...

    Review to follow closer to publication date. ...

    When writing a book that?s crowded, not in a bad way as many will assume but in a good way where there?s always something going on, something interesting and eye opening and crucial to the plot, when writing this sort of book, you need to treat it with grace, delicacy and balance a...

    Very enjoyable read. Not an unputdownable, nevertheless, a good story. I was worried I hadn't read the 1st in the DC Ian Bradshaw series, but I needn't have been. It's written very well that you don't have to know about any of the characters backgrounds from the previous story. Not all...

    I really really wanted to like this book, being from the north east and familiar with the setting time and place. But.. it is jam packed full of dialogue and a lot of the dialogue is made up of lengthy monologues which caused me to instantly switch off. Way too much telling and not eno...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book more than I thought,I understand why people say maybe read No Name Land first but it's for the characters back story's more than anything. I would recommend this book, it's an easy read and the story is good. I'll definitely be buying his first and thi...

    Good interwoven plot. ...

    I read this book before the first in the series, and some references were made to previous cases etc. It did not spoil this book though as it involved new cases, and the characters were described well in this book that I felt I wasn't missing out. I will be reading the previous book th...

    Told from the perspective of three different characters; Tom, a True Crime writer, Ian, a Detective Sergeant and Helen, an Investigative Journalist. Together they are trying to solve 3 crimes; the identity of a burned female body, the disappearance of a young woman and the innocence...

    Thanks to Penguin and Netgalley for the ARC of Behind Dead Eyes in return for an honest review. This is the first of Howard Linskey's books that I have read and I felt that I was playing catch up for a while trying to get to grips with the characters and back story, this made it diffi...

    Firstly I'd like to thank NetGalley for allowing me to read the ARC book for free in return for an honest review. Having read the first in this series of books No Name Lane I was thrilled to have the opportunity to read the second book. Set around the discovery of a young woman's bo...

    A cracking read! Thanks @HowardLinskey I can't wait for the next one ...

    Library audible (To remind me of the story) Tom Carney started his career as a journalist for a provincial newspaper in his home area, then he lands a job with a national tabloid that he ends up losing when the person he has a story about threatens the newspaper with libel action and ...

    Review to follow closer to publication date. ...

    When writing a book that?s crowded, not in a bad way as many will assume but in a good way where there?s always something going on, something interesting and eye opening and crucial to the plot, when writing this sort of book, you need to treat it with grace, delicacy and balance a...

    Very enjoyable read. Not an unputdownable, nevertheless, a good story. I was worried I hadn't read the 1st in the DC Ian Bradshaw series, but I needn't have been. It's written very well that you don't have to know about any of the characters backgrounds from the previous story. Not all...

    I really really wanted to like this book, being from the north east and familiar with the setting time and place. But.. it is jam packed full of dialogue and a lot of the dialogue is made up of lengthy monologues which caused me to instantly switch off. Way too much telling and not eno...

    Behind Dead Eyes is the superbly accomplished follow-up to No Name Lane featuring the disillusioned and out of favour cop, DC Ian Bradshaw forming an unlikely alliance with journalist turned true-crime writer, Tom Carney and junior crime reporter, Helen Norton. In the wake of the unoff...

    Behind Dead Eyes is the second book in a series that follows three main characters. It actually works really well as a stand alone but as I love No Name Lane, the first in the series, I highly recommend reading them both. Helen, seemed more in the back ground in the first novel but ...

    A body is found with its identity extinguished in a shocking manner. Detective Ian Bradshaw will not be able to catch the killer if the victim can not be identified. Does a missing young woman hold the key to unravel the answers? Helen Norton is a Web Journalist about to uncove...

    I enjoyed the first book in this series (No Name Lane) and was looking forward to what came next for both Tom Carney and Helen Norton. As for Ian Bradshaw, well maybe not so much! When a body is found and is unrecognisable, Detective Ian Bradshaw is the copper working on the case. Ian ...

    This is the second book in this trilogy set in the North East of England during the nineties, the first being No Name Lane. It can be read as a standalone but you will definitely be missing out if you don?t read both! This book just grabbed me right from the very first page and ju...

    Just not feeling this one at all. Got about 120 pages in and stopped caring. It might just be that I'm not in a crime-fiction-y mood! ...

    An involving, slow-burning mystery which makes such good use of its 1990s' setting. ...

    I enjoyed this a lot. The Ian Bradshaw books are very well done indeed and hope for more to come. One due out I think. A man in jail for the murder of his lover approaches a journalist (Tom) in the hope of his leading an investigation to prove his innocence. In another story a councill...

    Behind dead eyes by Howard Linskey. There is a burnt body of a girl. The police can't identify her as her fingers has been chopped off. Detective Ian Bradshaw can't catch the killer if no one can Id the victim. Somewhere out the is a missing young woman who may hold the answers. Thi...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book more than I thought,I understand why people say maybe read No Name Land first but it's for the characters back story's more than anything. I would recommend this book, it's an easy read and the story is good. I'll definitely be buying his first and thi...

    Good interwoven plot. ...

    For me it turned ugly as it approached the end. There are some topics that just aren't to my taste. ...

    Whoa what a book. Total gripping and amazing I'm gonna read rest of the book of this series. It's truly amazing i loved it and completely lost in it. ...
