When one of the notorious Johnson brothers is murdered and a bag of money goes missing, a deadly game of cat and mouse is set in motion.

DS Allie Shenton and her team are called in to catch the killer, but the suspects are double-crossing each other and Allie has little time to untangle the web of lies.

As she delves deeper into the case, things take a personal turn when Allie realises she is being stalked by the very same person who attacked her sister seventeen years ago and left her for dead.

Set over forty-eight tension-filled hours, Only the Brave is the latest gut-churning book from acclaimed author Mel Sherratt.


My Review:

I'm beginning to fall in love with DS Allie Shenton. She's such a complex and intelligently written character, it's impossible not to adore her. Gutsy, with such innate skills of detection, Allie attacks her latest case with gusto. 


The cleverly interwoven plot with Allie's stalker is chilling. I could hardly turn the pages fast enough as I devoured this brilliantly compelling novel. I found it utterly enthralling, unputdownable.


If you're looking for a police procedural with a difference, you need to discover Allie Shenton!
