A Cold Dark Heart is the eighth novel in the Inspector Drake series
Drake’s most dangerous killer and shocking case yet…
Accident or murder...?
When eighty-nine-year-old Emyr Isaac is found dead in his home, Drake and his team initially suspect a burglary gone wrong. Isaac was old, and his death was a tragedy, but it’s not a murder case…is it?
A grisly discovery...
Drake uncovers more suspicious deaths, all elderly victims, all seemingly innocent, but with one chilling connection.
A twisted killer...
If Drake’s suspicions are correct, they have a dangerous serial killer on the loose. Soon, the team realise that stopping this killer will require playing a dangerous game - how do you catch a murderer trusted by everyone?
This book is a book about opposites- Drakes new boss/his old boss, his ex wife/new girlfriend, welsh/english, evil/goodness, season cop/new cop. An it breathes new life into the series, as what seems like a simple case of accidental death turns into something much more evolved, that seems to vex his squad with each new discovery. With plenty of red herrings and thrills, this book is a real page turner for those new to the series, and those faithful to every book in it.
