When a dead dog is found buried in the woods, the attending police breathe a sigh of relief and start to move on. Unfortunately for them it hides a deeper secret. A body, buried beneath it, killed by a rare poison.
DI Peter Bridle is put on the case and he quickly begins to peel away the layers to find the case is far from isolated. As the bodies mount up and the leads dwindle, he and his team uncover a world of child abuse and S&M.
With a sick wife and a demanding mistress, can Peter focus on the clues in front of him to find the killer? Can he trust anybody? And will the major incident team figure it out in time to prevent the backlash?

I am a retired firefighter and police command centre supervisor. I have two grown up sons and two grandsons. I am a widower and my late wife always encouraged me to write. I started writing children's stories for my grandsons and have had one of these published, The Legend of Tor Silverwolf. Backlash is my first adult novel and I have drawn heavily on my previous police service experience to make the story as realistic as possible. I am a keen sports fan, especially rugby and cricket and I work as a volunteer for the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.
