Police Constable Ernie Shavers is murdered while trying to save the life of a suicidal teenager and everyone wants a piece of the killer. Some are happy to play it by the book, others don’t give a damn whether the rules are smashed to pieces. Whether they’re playing straight or crooked, they may not have long before the killer strikes again. Unfortunately it’s a big city and the current crime wave has thrown them a couple of curve balls to pile on the pressure.
At the zoo, a rhino is killed for its horn. With no evidence trail and a broken heart, DS Sue Nolan turns to an old flame, a man who always has his ear to the ground. Gangland boss Johnny Yen is only too happy to help, but only if he can get a little something in return.
In the centre of town, the biggest store in the city is robbed by a mannequin. It’s the perfect inside job and the owners of the store know exactly which officer they want on the case, only the officer doesn’t feel quite the same way.
If that wasn’t bad enough, record snowfall has created chaos within the police department.
It’s going to be one hell of a Christmas.
Praise for LET IT SNOW:
“You’ll want to spend time with the characters in this book. They’re ordinary people in all their glory and folly. Bird even manages to make one of the most hated characters in fiction (or life—the cop killer—engaging and interesting. Highly recommended, even for those who don’t usually dig police procedurals.” —Chris Rhatigan, Publisher, All Due Respect Books
“Let It Snow is an enjoyable fireside treat, though it certainly isn’t sanitised, it’s a warming police procedural for any point in the winter.” —Mal McEwan, Crime Fiction Lover
“Bird manages to create more than enough suspense to keep the reader turning pages to find out what happens.” —Charles Salzberg, The Big Thrill Magazine
“The tension is well-paced and, as in real life, there’s more than one case running together. Police personnel’s home lives are part of the problem. I found this a really good read.” —Kath Middleton, Ignite
