Detective Sergeant Adam Tyler, talented, taciturn, reclusive, gay. He ignores the jibes from his colleagues – mostly.
The body of missing financier Gerald Cartwright is found in the walls of his home when his son starts a renovation.
The son Oscar, is the man Tyler had a one night stand with the night before. By chance, or otherwise?
Oscar was basically raised by the two ladies living next door to his home. Now elderly and ill, one of them is receiving hand-delivered, threatening letters.
Toss-in a Sheffield arsonist and you have something else to niggle at your brain.
Firewatching is a delicious, clever, debut book by Russ Thomas. He’s a talent to keep in mind.
