    Eva Dunbar wakes up to find herself in a large metal crate with no obvious way out. The door is extremely heavy and securely locked from the outside, but how did she get here? Where is she, and why? Author, Howard Linskey brings Eva's dark and terrifying nightmare right into our very l...

    One of the reasons I like this series is that is set in Durham, a city I have lived in. This is the fourth in the series featuring DS Ian Bradshaw, a cop who has established the working of cases with journalists, Tom Carney and Helen Norton. It is 1997, and Durham Constabulary is suffe...

    This was completely my cup of tea - seriously, if the amazing and rather creepy cover and the enticing synopsis don't pique your interest then it ain't for you. Having not read the previous books in the series I cannot comment on those but I do think this works well as a standalone - o...

    This is the first DS Bradshaw novel that I have read, and it certainly will not be the last. I enjoyed this book in its entirety and was hooked from the first paragraph. At the start of the book, Eva is ?imprisoned in a large metal box?, with a bed, a lamp and a bible, unaware of...

    'The chosen ones' by Howard Linskey is one of the best crime thrillers I have read this year and Linksey has shot right to the top of my favourite authors. 'The chosen ones' was my first encounter with the DC Ian Bradshaw series but it is 4th in the series. Having not read the prev...

    Another terrific addition to this series from Howard Linskey- I?m a big fan not only of his writing but also his wonderful mix of police procedural and psychological thriller always with a deliciously dark and creepy premise which is certainly the case with The Chosen Ones.   Take...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Penguin UK - Michael Joseph for a review copy of The Chosen Ones, the fourth novel to feature DS Ian Bradshaw of Durham police and journalists Tom Carney and Helen Norton. Durham police think they may have a problem as five young women have recent...

    Oh wow! This book should have a warning that says don?t read when alone because believe me I was bricking it. Even the room I was reading in seemed to get smaller and the hot weather didn?t help with my already raised temperature and adrenaline fuelled mind. Wakening in a box, one ...

    My thanks to Netgalley, and Penguin UK - Michael Joseph for my ARC. Although I have been somewhat delinquent in taking so much time to finish the book; reading coincided with TV coverage of the 2018 Football World Cup, Queens, Eastbourne and Wimbledon tennis... So little time to read, ...

    Over the years young women have been going missing in North East England. No one saw or heard from them again. Without any leads the police have had little to go on. But when a body is discovered in the woods, the police are hopeful it will hold new clues leading them to whoever is res...

    There?s a lot to get your teeth in to with this book. Detective Ian Bradshaw and the journalist Tom Carney are a good duo and they always seem to do the unexpected which I really enjoy. The things that get thrown at them! Ian Bradshaw is a good cop as he?s nor one of the group and ...

    This is the fourth book in the series featuring Detective Ian Bradshaw and the journalist Tom Carney. I?ve read the previous three in the series and I loved them all and it was with some excitement that I picked up the new book in the series. I was not to be disappointed because I ab...

    I didn't realise that this was book 4 of the DC Bradshaw series until I logged it into my goodreads account to record my reading progress, and was a little disappointed about this at first as I prefer not to join a series part way through. That said though, don't let this put you off f...

    Eva wakes up in a box with no memory of how she got there, meanwhile PC Ian Bradshaw is investigating seemingly unlinked cases of women who have disappeared. But when an unexpected body is discovered, it seems the case is bigger than once thought? I must admit I haven?t read an...

    Perfect for fans of the tv show Broadchurch! Multiple police procedural storylines that intersect to solve a puzzle. ...

    *** Find this review and others on my blog! *** First of all, thank you to Penguin Random House UK for sending me a copy if this book! As always, all opinions and thoughts are my own! Going into this, I had no idea that this was actually the fourth book that had been written feat...

    This being the fourth in the series, usual series rules apply. Although the main story is self-contained, one of the big things about this series in my opinion is the dynamic between the three main characters and so, to get the best from them and their interconnected backstories, it wo...

    I hadn?t realised this book was the fourth in a series when I started to read it, I always prefer to read a series in order to get the background of the main characters but this book did a good job of summarising any gaps and I don?t feel my reading experience suffered as a result ...

    This is cleverly plotted psychological thriller. When a novel starts with a young woman waking up in a metal crate with no obvious means of an exit you will want to stay with it to find out what happens. The police in Northumbria are overworked and short of staff so they employ two...

    " Yeah " I have found an author of gritty northern crime that I haven't read before. This book is the fourth in a series about Detective Ian Bradshaw with journalists Tom Carney and Helen Norton. The two journalists have a knack of routing out information that the police would find har...

    Police detective Ian Bradshaw and his journalist allies Tom and Helen investigate the disappearance of 5 women from their area which links to cases of missing women going back a couple of decades. Great page turner with plenty of tension and interesting characters. ...

    I am a huge fan of Howard Linskey?s crime fiction novels and also his ww2 novel Hunting The Hangman. He certainly is a man of many talents. The Chosen Ones centres around the disappearance of several women in 1997. It is not for the faint of heart, the opening scenes set the tone per...

    So we finally get to see Tom Carney and his partner Helen as well as Ian Bradshaw. I've read all of Mr L's books and this particular series has always been one I enjoyed, however I lean more towards Tom and Helen as favourite characters over Bradshaw but this latest book makes them fee...

    One of the reasons I like this series is that is set in Durham, a city I have lived in. This is the fourth in the series featuring DS Ian Bradshaw, a cop who has established the working of cases with journalists, Tom Carney and Helen Norton. It is 1997, and Durham Constabulary is suffe...

    This was completely my cup of tea - seriously, if the amazing and rather creepy cover and the enticing synopsis don't pique your interest then it ain't for you. Having not read the previous books in the series I cannot comment on those but I do think this works well as a standalone - o...

    This is the first DS Bradshaw novel that I have read, and it certainly will not be the last. I enjoyed this book in its entirety and was hooked from the first paragraph. At the start of the book, Eva is ?imprisoned in a large metal box?, with a bed, a lamp and a bible, unaware of...

    'The chosen ones' by Howard Linskey is one of the best crime thrillers I have read this year and Linksey has shot right to the top of my favourite authors. 'The chosen ones' was my first encounter with the DC Ian Bradshaw series but it is 4th in the series. Having not read the prev...

    Another terrific addition to this series from Howard Linskey- I?m a big fan not only of his writing but also his wonderful mix of police procedural and psychological thriller always with a deliciously dark and creepy premise which is certainly the case with The Chosen Ones.   Take...

    Oh wow! This book should have a warning that says don?t read when alone because believe me I was bricking it. Even the room I was reading in seemed to get smaller and the hot weather didn?t help with my already raised temperature and adrenaline fuelled mind. Wakening in a box, one ...

    My thanks to Netgalley, and Penguin UK - Michael Joseph for my ARC. Although I have been somewhat delinquent in taking so much time to finish the book; reading coincided with TV coverage of the 2018 Football World Cup, Queens, Eastbourne and Wimbledon tennis... So little time to read, ...

    This being the fourth in the series, usual series rules apply. Although the main story is self-contained, one of the big things about this series in my opinion is the dynamic between the three main characters and so, to get the best from them and their interconnected backstories, it wo...

    I hadn?t realised this book was the fourth in a series when I started to read it, I always prefer to read a series in order to get the background of the main characters but this book did a good job of summarising any gaps and I don?t feel my reading experience suffered as a result ...

    This is cleverly plotted psychological thriller. When a novel starts with a young woman waking up in a metal crate with no obvious means of an exit you will want to stay with it to find out what happens. The police in Northumbria are overworked and short of staff so they employ two...

    I am a huge fan of Howard Linskey?s crime fiction novels and also his ww2 novel Hunting The Hangman. He certainly is a man of many talents. The Chosen Ones centres around the disappearance of several women in 1997. It is not for the faint of heart, the opening scenes set the tone per...

    So we finally get to see Tom Carney and his partner Helen as well as Ian Bradshaw. I've read all of Mr L's books and this particular series has always been one I enjoyed, however I lean more towards Tom and Helen as favourite characters over Bradshaw but this latest book makes them fee...

    Set In Durham and flitting between the 1970's, 80's and 90's this whole tale begins to make some sense after a long investigation. 8 police officers are suspended from duty as a result of one being found accepting bribes. This leaves the balance of detectives in the team, thin on th...

    Eva Dunbar wakes up to find herself in a large metal crate with no obvious way out. The door is extremely heavy and securely locked from the outside, but how did she get here? Where is she, and why? Author, Howard Linskey brings Eva's dark and terrifying nightmare right into our very l...

    One of the reasons I like this series is that is set in Durham, a city I have lived in. This is the fourth in the series featuring DS Ian Bradshaw, a cop who has established the working of cases with journalists, Tom Carney and Helen Norton. It is 1997, and Durham Constabulary is suffe...

    DC Ian Bradshaw #4 Eva Dunbar wakes up in a large metal box. She has no idea how she got there or who had taken her. Eva is not the first person to disappear. Detective Ian Bradshaw has no leads. When a body is found, the police hope the discovery will at least provide a clue tha...

    This was completely my cup of tea - seriously, if the amazing and rather creepy cover and the enticing synopsis don't pique your interest then it ain't for you. Having not read the previous books in the series I cannot comment on those but I do think this works well as a standalone - o...

    This is the first DS Bradshaw novel that I have read, and it certainly will not be the last. I enjoyed this book in its entirety and was hooked from the first paragraph. At the start of the book, Eva is ?imprisoned in a large metal box?, with a bed, a lamp and a bible, unaware of...

    'The chosen ones' by Howard Linskey is one of the best crime thrillers I have read this year and Linksey has shot right to the top of my favourite authors. 'The chosen ones' was my first encounter with the DC Ian Bradshaw series but it is 4th in the series. Having not read the prev...

    Another terrific addition to this series from Howard Linskey- I?m a big fan not only of his writing but also his wonderful mix of police procedural and psychological thriller always with a deliciously dark and creepy premise which is certainly the case with The Chosen Ones.   Take...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Penguin UK - Michael Joseph for a review copy of The Chosen Ones, the fourth novel to feature DS Ian Bradshaw of Durham police and journalists Tom Carney and Helen Norton. Durham police think they may have a problem as five young women have recent...

    Oh wow! This book should have a warning that says don?t read when alone because believe me I was bricking it. Even the room I was reading in seemed to get smaller and the hot weather didn?t help with my already raised temperature and adrenaline fuelled mind. Wakening in a box, one ...

    My thanks to Netgalley, and Penguin UK - Michael Joseph for my ARC. Although I have been somewhat delinquent in taking so much time to finish the book; reading coincided with TV coverage of the 2018 Football World Cup, Queens, Eastbourne and Wimbledon tennis... So little time to read, ...

    There?s a lot to get your teeth in to with this book. Detective Ian Bradshaw and the journalist Tom Carney are a good duo and they always seem to do the unexpected which I really enjoy. The things that get thrown at them! Ian Bradshaw is a good cop as he?s nor one of the group and ...

    I didn't realise that this was book 4 of the DC Bradshaw series until I logged it into my goodreads account to record my reading progress, and was a little disappointed about this at first as I prefer not to join a series part way through. That said though, don't let this put you off f...

    This being the fourth in the series, usual series rules apply. Although the main story is self-contained, one of the big things about this series in my opinion is the dynamic between the three main characters and so, to get the best from them and their interconnected backstories, it wo...

    I hadn?t realised this book was the fourth in a series when I started to read it, I always prefer to read a series in order to get the background of the main characters but this book did a good job of summarising any gaps and I don?t feel my reading experience suffered as a result ...

    Police detective Ian Bradshaw and his journalist allies Tom and Helen investigate the disappearance of 5 women from their area which links to cases of missing women going back a couple of decades. Great page turner with plenty of tension and interesting characters. ...

    I am a huge fan of Howard Linskey?s crime fiction novels and also his ww2 novel Hunting The Hangman. He certainly is a man of many talents. The Chosen Ones centres around the disappearance of several women in 1997. It is not for the faint of heart, the opening scenes set the tone per...

    Eva Dunbar wakes up to find herself in a large metal crate with no obvious way out. The door is extremely heavy and securely locked from the outside, but how did she get here? Where is she, and why? Author, Howard Linskey brings Eva's dark and terrifying nightmare right into our very l...

    One of the reasons I like this series is that is set in Durham, a city I have lived in. This is the fourth in the series featuring DS Ian Bradshaw, a cop who has established the working of cases with journalists, Tom Carney and Helen Norton. It is 1997, and Durham Constabulary is suffe...

    This was completely my cup of tea - seriously, if the amazing and rather creepy cover and the enticing synopsis don't pique your interest then it ain't for you. Having not read the previous books in the series I cannot comment on those but I do think this works well as a standalone - o...

    This is the first DS Bradshaw novel that I have read, and it certainly will not be the last. I enjoyed this book in its entirety and was hooked from the first paragraph. At the start of the book, Eva is ?imprisoned in a large metal box?, with a bed, a lamp and a bible, unaware of...

    'The chosen ones' by Howard Linskey is one of the best crime thrillers I have read this year and Linksey has shot right to the top of my favourite authors. 'The chosen ones' was my first encounter with the DC Ian Bradshaw series but it is 4th in the series. Having not read the prev...

    Another terrific addition to this series from Howard Linskey- I?m a big fan not only of his writing but also his wonderful mix of police procedural and psychological thriller always with a deliciously dark and creepy premise which is certainly the case with The Chosen Ones.   Take...

    Oh wow! This book should have a warning that says don?t read when alone because believe me I was bricking it. Even the room I was reading in seemed to get smaller and the hot weather didn?t help with my already raised temperature and adrenaline fuelled mind. Wakening in a box, one ...

    My thanks to Netgalley, and Penguin UK - Michael Joseph for my ARC. Although I have been somewhat delinquent in taking so much time to finish the book; reading coincided with TV coverage of the 2018 Football World Cup, Queens, Eastbourne and Wimbledon tennis... So little time to read, ...

    Over the years young women have been going missing in North East England. No one saw or heard from them again. Without any leads the police have had little to go on. But when a body is discovered in the woods, the police are hopeful it will hold new clues leading them to whoever is res...

    There?s a lot to get your teeth in to with this book. Detective Ian Bradshaw and the journalist Tom Carney are a good duo and they always seem to do the unexpected which I really enjoy. The things that get thrown at them! Ian Bradshaw is a good cop as he?s nor one of the group and ...

    I didn't realise that this was book 4 of the DC Bradshaw series until I logged it into my goodreads account to record my reading progress, and was a little disappointed about this at first as I prefer not to join a series part way through. That said though, don't let this put you off f...

    This being the fourth in the series, usual series rules apply. Although the main story is self-contained, one of the big things about this series in my opinion is the dynamic between the three main characters and so, to get the best from them and their interconnected backstories, it wo...

    I hadn?t realised this book was the fourth in a series when I started to read it, I always prefer to read a series in order to get the background of the main characters but this book did a good job of summarising any gaps and I don?t feel my reading experience suffered as a result ...

    This is cleverly plotted psychological thriller. When a novel starts with a young woman waking up in a metal crate with no obvious means of an exit you will want to stay with it to find out what happens. The police in Northumbria are overworked and short of staff so they employ two...

    " Yeah " I have found an author of gritty northern crime that I haven't read before. This book is the fourth in a series about Detective Ian Bradshaw with journalists Tom Carney and Helen Norton. The two journalists have a knack of routing out information that the police would find har...
