I’m reading DCI Jones Casebook: Ellis Flynn for Rosie’s book review team.

First line of the book.

Early afternoon, Birmingham

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

An empathetic detective and his Swedish-born colleague hunt for the abductors of a teenage schoolgirl—a police procedural set in England and France. 

When fourteen-year-old Hollie Jardine fails to return home from school, her terrified parents call the police. 

It doesn’t take veteran detective, DCI David Jones, head of the Midlands Police Serious Crime Unit, long to discover a link between Hollie and convicted sex-offender, Ellis Flynn. 

With Hollie’s chances of survival fading, Jones and his colleague Alex Olganski risk their careers when they ignore protocol to follow Flynn’s trail across the Channel into France. 

What they discover in an idyllic backwater will stretch Jones’ detection skills to the limit, and Alex’s loyalty to heartbreak.

Introduce the main character using only three words.

DCI David Jones ~ zealous, empathetic, loner.

Delightful design (add the cover of the book.)

Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)

I think this would appeal to fans of suspenseful and fast paced crime fiction, police procedurals, with realistic characters. 

Your favourite line/scene.

He checked the time – seven minutes left.

Alex bowed her head and concentrated on the screen showing the soon-to-be-locked blue search template. 

Come on, Alex. Down to you now, lass.

She cursed in Swedish, glanced at Jones, and shook her head in apology. He stood over her and tried to read the screen. Her fingers fluttered over the keys, but her eyes remained glued to the screen. Jones wondered when she’d learned to touch type. He also wondered why it mattered.

Alex stopped typing and looked up. Smudged mascara, where she’d rubbed her eye, drew Jones’ attention.

“Boss, please?”

Jones raised an open hand. “Sorry,” he said.

He turned to leave the room, but paused long enough to straighten some of the papers on Ryan’s desk. He couldn’t help himself.
