After reading the book being released this spring, I became curious about the backstory and decided to read them. I enjoy them and read them in sequence. I hesitated to put them down. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SERIES. My only problem is the expense of the ebooks.
In the first book, I Learned that Hazel Best is a rookie cop in Norfolk, England. She is on probation as she is a recent graduate of the Police Academy and this her first posting. Gabriel Ash is Norfolk town tramp who wonders the streets with a dog and is known as Rambles with dogs.
Hazel and her partner are called to an area will hoodlums are beating up a person. One of the boys is holding the dog and at last, released the dog in order to save Rambles’ life. Hazel decides to help and Rambles is placed in an empty cell to sleep off the beating. A stranger is placed with him for a short period and later is removed. Before he was gone be told Rambles that he was going to kill. He was MURDER in a cell by the town’s tough. Hazel becomes important in a major case. The ending is violent and a surprise.
