Shallow Waters by Rebecca Bradley

Shallow Waters (DI Hannah Robbins #1)Shallow Waters by Rebecca Bradley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well, I love a good thriller me. I loved the fast pace of this, the realism of all the characters, the smell of death permeating from the pages. My vivid imagination came into play most definitely with this book and I just lived every sentence of this wonderful first book in this series.

Rebecca Bradley is new to me as an author, and most definitely "up there" with the crime writers. I was gripped from beginning to end.

There was suspense in this story.

One body turning up in a dirty alleyway is one thing, a younger girl, quite something else, the cause of death and the leading up to her death, something else yet again......

DI Hannah Robbins and her team are pushed to find out who this girl was. Where she came from. They need to find the killer.

Except.....
another body of another girl turns up, the urgency is on. If the public, the media get hold of this, how is it going to look? No advancements have been made.

DI Hannah Robbins and her team are pushed to the bitter limits to pursue the killer. Just who is responsible and why?


DI Hannah Robbins is a real person, real emotions of her own, confused love life, tied to her job. Rebecca Bradley did a superb job in making the reader stay tuned with the DI, to see her as human, to connect with her. I know I certainly did.


Excellently written.


A gritty police procedural, with no-holds barred and a shocking insight to the reality of some. Dark and disturbing, yet exceptionally compelling.' - Mel Sherratt, author of Taunting The Dead. 

'Tense, compelling and utterly absorbing. DI Hannah Robbins is a force to be reckoned with.' - Jane Isaac, author of The Truth Will Out. 



When the naked, battered body of an unidentified teenager is found dumped in an alleyway, post-mortem finds evidence of a harrowing series of events. 

Another teenage death with the same MO pushes DI Hannah Robbins and her team on the Nottingham City division Major Crimes Unit, to their limits, and across county borders. In a race against the clock they attempt to unpick a thick web of lies and deceit to uncover the truth behind the deaths. 

But it doesn't stop there. When catching a killer isn't enough, just how far are the team willing to push themselves to save the next girl?
