APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
A transplant from the London Metropolitan police, Caroline Hills never expected her new life as the sole DI on the Rutland Police force to include much serious crime. But when a man is found dead, laid out in a crucifixion pose by a desecrated church on Hambleton Water, she scrambles her resources to keep the case and prove her worth. Accompanied by her DS, Dexter Antoine, she swiftly starts the investigation into the victim, his past and all those who might carry a grudge against him. The first book in the Rutland Series, What Lies Beneath offers up a fast-paced police procedural that blends vividly drawn characters and local history with a twisty storyline and an outcome nobody sees coming.
