Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Colm Casey’s life is on a downward spiral. The suicide of his son two years earlier still haunts him. His teenage daughter is unruly and he has recently become divorced from his wife. He has lost all interest in his police career. Much of his anxiety stems from his ethnic background and troubled childhood.

When Casey stumbles across evidence linking the death of an elderly priest to an immigration advice group he is drawn into the murky world of people trafficking.

The trail leads him back to a long-forgotten tragedy and his own traumatic upbringing. He has to find out if he is prepared to unearth evidence in an old case and face a final showdown with his close friend and mentor.
Ultimately the dilemma forces him to accept the tragic events in his past, including the death of his son.

Here’s what some key figures within the writing industry had to say:

‘I really enjoyed this book. Brilliant dialogue. It has some really excellent cliff-hangers and the writing is lovely, fluent and accessible. Colm Casey is totally believable as a person and the female characters are all spot on - really impressive. It has a lot of twists and turns which kept me guessing. This book was a pleasure to read’…Margaret James.

‘This crime thriller has good drama and substantial characters rather than lapsing into sensationalism and police jargon. The dialogue is realist and convincing with well-timed humour, depth of characters and vivid descriptions. It has a succinct and eloquent style’ …Lorraine Bacchus.
