This is a story of coming out October 28, 2022. The paperback is available for order. This is about a delightful character name Gloria Jones, she haves a habit of helping people, she like a ruthless vigilante. she is not an any ordinary old Lady, Shi seeing injustice everywhere, she a determined and ruthless killer, striking back against violent criminals throughout the country, Gloria stands of for those who can't stand for themselves. Gloria's cause to rid society of criminals destroying decent people's lives. Detective Chief Inspector Juliet Simpson working for the National Crime Agency for just three weeks, have been successful in her job. partly because of intervention of her ex-lover, assistant Commissioner Graeme Skelton, who removed her as head of Operation Chiddingstone. And another person is character Detective Constable Stuart Graves an experience officer with ten years as a detective under his belt. His fair hair too long for an officer. This story is gripping exciting, entertaining, remarkable, sensational and spectacularly great. I enjoyed reading this novel. - Kindle Customer
