About the Book

Hillary’s Back (Detective Hillary Greene #18) by Faith Martin

ONE OF THE WORLD’S FAVOURITE DETECTIVES RETURNS. A BRAND NEW MYSTERY IN THE MILLION-SELLING SERIES. DETECTIVE HILLARY GREENE IS BACK! Eighteen months after Hillary suffered a personal tragedy, she is throwing herself into her work to try to get over it. Former soldier Gareth Proctor joins her team and finds himself quickly growing to enjoy his new environment. The first cold case he works on is the murder of Andrew Feeley. In 2012, this twenty-one-year-old was found dead in the woods near his home, killed by a single stab wound to the chest from his own knife. Andrew was extremely unpopular. He was a drug dealer, pimp and bully. His stepdad was one of the main suspects, as they hated each other and often came to blows. Other suspects include Toby Truman and his mother Debbie. Andrew was responsible for getting Toby hooked on drugs. Given Andrew’s criminal background, his murder is thought to be drug-related. But Hillary’s not buying it — she knows it’s personal. And a search of the Feeleys’ garden turns up some chilling evidence. HILLARY GREENE RETURNS TO ONE OF HER TOUGHEST CASES YET. This is a crime mystery full of well-observed characters, which will have you gripped from start to the absolutely thrilling conclusion. THE DETECTIVE DI Hillary Greene An attractive, single woman just over fifty, Hillary Greene was a police officer of many years’ experience (earning the rank of DI) and came up through the ranks. Consequently, she knew how the system worked, and was always fiercely loyal to the force without being blinkered to its faults. Forced to retire early through no fault of her own, she has now returned to the force as a civilian consultant on cold cases.

My Review

This book is one I never thought I would see but am happy it has been written as it involves Hilary Green, who last we saw was 18 months previous to this book and has now got another case to investigate.

This book follows Hilary and her team as they investigate a new cold case about a drug dealer who was murdered back in 2012.

The fact that the murdered victim was a drug dealer does make it a lot harder to get into the story as you end up feeling that he deserved everything he got, but the more you read it the more you understand that his family still need answers.

As you get into the story more you start to realise that everything is not as it seems, and this might not just be another drug related death, but something a lot more sinister.

As Hillary and the team delve further into the investigation they come up against a lot of brick walls as the victim was not very well liked in the area and therefore people couldn’t really care less whether his murder is solved or not.

Overall this is a great addition to the series and I really enjoyed the fact that Hillary was back, even though it was only due to her not getting over the death of her partner 18 months previous
