The Chosen Ones (DC Ian Bradshaw #4) Reviews
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 suffering from a reputational knock after one officer is publicly outed as corrupt and 8 are suspended for the same reason. The police are short of manpower which is how Bradshaw finds himself the sole person on the inv ...more
I enjoy this book, while it was the 4th in this series it read perfectly as a stand alone read. All characters are likeable, I did find it a little frustrating reading about the non acted upon feelings of Ton and Helen, however i can see this being a relationship that develops in later books.
DC Ian Bradshaw is investigating girls going missing however he is alone in this due to loosing some corrupted officers. He calls in his journalists friends to help and together that delve deep into a murky ...more
This is becoming one of my favourite series. The characters of DS Ian Bradshaw, investigative reporters Tom Carney and Helen Norton appear to me as true to life characters. The friendship, their sense of humour and their compassion and determination to solve a case makes for a brilliant read. The trio are a refreshing change to a police team, as Tom uses his investigational skills, that are maybe outside of the police force's remit. There is so much going on in this book, the disappearance of yo ...more
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 living rooms in this well crafted thriller/police procedural.

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 recently gone missing, but with no evidence of a crime and nothing to link them, nobody is sure what to do. DS Ian Bradshaw is drafted in to replace the current team and he promptly recruits Tom Carney and Helen Norton to he ...more
" 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 hard to get hold of so they make a great team. Although it's the fourth in the series there was just enough background information for it to work well as a stand alone but obviously the series would be best read in or ...more

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 featuring Detective Ian Bradshaw and Journalist Tom Carney. However, it was one of those great books in a series that didn’t elude much to what had happened in previous books which was great as it meant that I didn’t feel like ...more
