What a wonderful book.” Ron“This is a complex plot which gripped me when I started reading.” Olga“5 Stars – A Gripping Read.” Barbara“A very well-written and gripping book.” Viv“A clever plot, excellent characters and that ‘je ne sais quoi’ that keeps you turning the pages.” NickiTHE SETTINGBirmingham is a city of stark contrasts with a rich cultural and historical heritage. Playing a key role in the industrial revolution, it helped shape the nation’s manufacturing industry But with its many green spaces, Birmingham also borders on the beautiful countryside of Worcestershire and Warwickshire, is just a few miles from Stratford on Avon and a short drive from the wild country of mid-Wales. Birmingham’s population is large and ethnically diverse, and while urban regeneration has forged a modern and culturally vibrant city, the decaying remnants of the industrial past and 1960s concrete jungle give it a unique and gritty character; the dark underbelly policed by DI Tom Mariner and his team.THE DETECTIVESDetective Inspector Tom Mariner is, on the surface, an average dedicated policeman, but his experiences as a younger man have given him an insight into life on the dark side, and a clear sense of right and wrong. Mariner has little interest in material things. He lives in a modest canal-side cottage, enjoys the occasional (real) beer and game of dominoes and drives an old car. He is most at home in the outdoors, with an OS map and a compass, and in times of crisis, will take off and walk for miles in any weather.Police Constable Tony Knox has recently transferred to the West Midlands force and finds himself back in uniform following an undisclosed transgression. A scouser with the gift of the gab, and an irrepressible ladies’ man, Knox is initially wary of the inscrutable DI Mariner, but, when a need arises, is grateful for his unquestioning support and the lack of curiosity about his personal life.DI MARINER SERIESBook 1: DEADLY LIESBook 2: INNOCENT LIESBook 3: KILLER LIESBook 4: BABY LIESBook 5: MARRIED LIESBook 6: BURIED LIESBook 7: MISSING LIESBook 8: DARKEST LIES
