About this deal

He used iffy finance from the Karamanski brothers, Nico and Audrey, of the Bulgarian mafia to finance Fellside Hall, and when he fell behind with the payments they suggested a mutual arrangement - he used Bernard Taylor/ Taylor's Estate Agents to supply a series of remote rental properties where he ran cannabis farms using trafficked slave gangs supplied by the mafia. This is book 2 in what is promising to be a very enjoyable series, set in Bruncliffe in the Yorkshire Dales.

She was born about 1969 to Irish immigrant parents who had scrapped their TV, and never owned another one. Samson loves Delilah, but has been exonerated, and asked to rejoin the National Crime Agency, the Met job he loves and at which he excels. This is book 6 in what is turning out to be a very good series with strong characters, a good blend of main plots and smaller ones, and above all a compelling personal lives story.Samson has probably had his cover blown, he has been beaten up, and has been advised by his boss to lie low for about six months until it can hopefully all be sorted. At the end of the book when the short term plots have been solved, Samson and Dee are back together, and Samson can now live in more comfort above the offices in a redecorated and refurnished bedroom. Delilah has an elaborate plan that includes Ida Capstick manning a headquarters, switching trackers, having Samson wear a bright yellow target jumper, have a decoy similarly dressed, switching mobile phones, having a sniper backup, etc, etc. Harry is attacked in the local golf club which is dowsed in petrol, and set fire, but Samson somehow manages to get Harry out, save his life, and becomes a local hero.

She spills some, and looking for a wipe in a drawer, finds two fishing flies her brother Ryan had tied, Nathan's prize possessions, stolen and kept as a souvenir by Rick. James Ellison is the local vet, Bernard Taylor the local estate agent, and the local police are Sgnt Clayton and PC Danny Bradley. A son retour, ils doivent résoudre plusieurs enquêtes, du vol de vêtements à la disparition d'un jeune homme. I must say that I hadn't even realised this book was out until I saw it on the shelves in W H Smith! On the day, sympathetic applause, but then silence as the knowlegeable crowd realise its not Ned, but Belle !

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Delilah studies what CCTV there is, and discovers the CCTV seems to break down regularly on auction days.

To have any future with Delilah, Samson simply must get his name cleared and we will need to read on to see what happens.That leaves space to concentrate on the main plot line and for tying up of loose ends, while still leaving enough of a cliff hanger to please even the most ardent of thriller fans. Stuart goes to local solicitor Matty Thistlethwaite for advice on shell companies, and later steals the Kingston Properties files - in cleaner Ida Capstick's bucket. She is also the author of the Dales Detective series which follows the adventures of Samson O'Brien and Delilah Metcalfe as they solve cases in the Yorkshire Dales. Cozy Case Files Volume 16 (By: Carolyn Haines,Donna Andrews,Diane Kelly,Elizabeth Penney,Mindy Quigley,Korina Moss,M.

There is a lot of humour and there are all sorts of sub plots - eg Joseph O'Brien is now having to fight his craving for alcohol once again, Delilah is facing bankruptcy, and having to take on hopeless cases for her DDA. Things have gone badly astray at the Dales Detective Agency, and the place is in disarray, with a mess of paperwork and dirty cups.

Apparently, full of regret, he later committed suicide - but of course there is a lot more to the story as it unfolds. He joined the police, was promoted, and then worked undercover in the series crime unit (SOCO) and for the national crime agency NCA. This is the eighth book in the Dales Detective series and follows almost directly on after the events of the previous book. Much, much later in the story, Tolpuddle will turn up at the gypsy camp looking for help when Samson and Delilah are trapped in a freezer six hours away from death, and we will learn if the gypsies are thieves or heroes. I have enjoyed this series immensely from book one and would say please read the other books before this one as this brings together threads from a few of the previous books.
