A Question of Despair

314 pages4 hours


Birmingham DI Sarah Quinn contends with a relentless TV reporter in this “crisply written” series debut from the author of the Bev Morriss novels (Library Journal).
When a baby is snatched from outside a Birmingham newsagent’s, ‘Ice Queen’ Detective Inspector Sarah Quinn is on the case. Unfortunately for her, so is the insufferably persistent TV reporter Caroline King. Quinn’s cool investigative methods contrast with those of the fiery King, who’ll stop at nothing in pursuit of a good story. But as the investigation stonewalls, it soon becomes clear that the two enemies will have to work together if the police are to have any chance of success . . .
Former BBC reporter and author of the acclaimed Bev Morriss series, Maureen Carter draws on her deep knowledge of journalism and crime investigation in this gritty police procedural with “an electric pace” to deliver a tale of crime and justice that “won’t soon leave you” (Library Journal).
