The first gripping book in The Organised Crime Team series by NY Times bestselling author of the Justice series, M A Comley and co-author Tara Lyons, author of In The Shadows.
When The Caller rings... what would you do? The Organised Crime Team is a newly-formed unit with one of the toughest tasks in London. Led by DI Angie North, their first investigation is a cold case that has foxed several officers in the Met for months. After Angie holds a TV appeal regarding the case, a number of similar aggressive attacks are brought to her attention. The team call on their contacts on the street for help. Their interest is sparked when several local names surface. To bring the criminals to justice a member of the Organised Crime Team is asked to risk their life in a dangerous covert operation.
The Caller by M A Comley and Tara Lyons was published in paperback on 2 June 2016.
I haven't read anything by either of these two authors before, but have really enjoyed The Caller and will most certainly be checking out other books by both authors.
The Caller is the first in a series and the first case for the newly formed Organised Crime Team, headed up by Detective Inspector Angie North. The team have been pulled together to look at unsolved cases, but are soon heavily involved in the investigation of current cases that appear to be linked to the older crimes.
I really like the character of Angie North. She's a refreshing change to the stereotypical police officers that are found in many crime series. Empathic, understanding but not afraid to take risks, she soon pulls together this group of police officers, and the depiction of teamwork is very well done.
The authors have cleverly incorporated the back stories of the officers, allowing them to introduce themselves to each other, and to the reader.
Gang culture is explored throughout the story, along with the often dangerous and precarious interventions that police teams undertake in order to make sure that the criminals are brought to justice. The Caller is an entertaining story, action-packed and well written.
It's a quick read, with great characters and a well thought out plot. I look forward to reading more by these authors.
My thanks to the authors who sent my copy for review.
