    Wrong Place, Wrong Time: A gripping detective crime thriller (DS James Ripley Book 1)

    It’s not paranoia if they are really out to get you. Crime rates are dropping in the town of Bilton, but that’s because the criminals are being picked off one by one. Three police officers are dispensing their own vigilante justice by killing local criminals who have evaded prosecution on technicalities. So far, they have managed to keep their nefarious activities concealed, until Mike Hendy accidentally witnesses their latest merciless execution… and swiftly becomes a target. In this deadly game of cat and mouse, the vigilantes appear to be everywhere, watching Mike’s every move and stealthily closing in on him. Where can he hide? Who can he trust to protect him when the killers are the police? Could there be more officers involved? DS James Ripley and DC Coffey might be his only hope, but as the detectives piece the clues together their investigation unearths an even bigger conspiracy. The shocking revelation sets the detectives and the vigilantes on a brutal collision course with the terrified Mike stuck in the middle. As the body count rises, Ripley needs to stop the murderers before they strike again. But to catch the killers, can James unravel the lies and sort out the truth before it’s too late? Wrong Place, Wrong Time is a gripping and compelling crime thriller that will make you question whether vigilante justice can ever be justified. ‘What an amazing book to read.
