Book Review The Way That It Falls (DS Lasser #2) by Robin Roughley
Title: The Way That It Falls (DS Lasser #2)
Author: Robin Roughley
For all the fans of English police/ detective novels this has to be a must be read item. It follows the investigation into the robbery of a jewelry store and death of an elderly woman, who was bulldozed aside, in the subsequent escape. You are then given a good look at the seedy narcotic and sexual traffic underbelly of a inner city in England. DS Lasser, as always, is doing his best to control the situation while ensuring justice prevails. The ending, while satisfactory, will leave you wondering who took the matter in hand?
Christmas, the season of goodwill, but not for all men.
When a jewellery shop in town is raided and an elderly woman dies it sets off a chain of violence that will test DS Lasser's resolve to the limit and beyond.
The victim is related to local drugs baron, Calum Green, who is determined to hunt down the man who killed his grandmother and make him pay the ultimate price. Though Green has no idea what's coming, no comprehension of how quickly his empire will start to crumble as the white-haired killer breezes into town and starts to take his world apart, one piece at a time.
As winter grips and fury fills the frozen streets, Lasser finds himself ensnared between the warring factions, trying to catch the guilty whilst protecting the innocent. Though, he soon comes to realise that in this town even the innocent have their own agenda and trust can often be misplaced with deadly consequences.
