Hello and welcome to our stop on The Conspiracy blog tour!
Thank you very much to Emma @ Damppebbles and Jack Probyn for providing a copies of the book to [K]
The reviews below are 100% honest and all of her own views.
Candice Strachan can’t breathe.
A small jewellers is raided in Guildford High Street and leaves police chasing their tails. Reports suggest that it’s The Crimsons, an organised crime group the police have been hunting for years.
The device wrapped around her neck is suffocating her, crushing her chest.
But for rookie detective, Jake Tanner, something doesn’t seem right. The heist doesn’t fit any of their previous patterns. And the last time Jake met them, he was staring down the barrel of their gun, bargaining for his life.
The men who put it there have left her to die.
When the shop owner is kidnapped and a collar bomb is attached to her neck, Jake learns one of his own is involved – a police officer.
Her life now rests in Jake Tanner’s hands.
As Jake follows the group on a wild goose chase, he questions everything he knows about his team. Who can he trust? And is he prepared to find out?
The Conspiracy by Jack Probyn is a tense crime thriller full of hooks and twists that will leave you guessing to the end. If you like Luther and Line Of Duty, you’ll love this series that combines tension, gripping plots, and police corruption.
(Warning: This book is intended for mature audiences and contains disturbing and potentially offensive material.)
Right from the start this book drew me in, I found it very easy read that I struggled to put down.
The story twists well, just when I thought I had worked out the plan things changed for me to puzzle over again. With the way this book has ended I am curious to see what happens in the next installment.
I enjoyed the characters in this book, who have a wide variety of personalities, though I do wish we saw more of certain ones, maybe they will feature more as the series progresses?
I don’t want to give any of the cleverly written storyline away, but if you enjoy a good crime thriller you need to pick up this book!
This is the first time I have met Jake and the first of Jack Probyn’s books, but it definitely won’t be the last. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next installment of the CID cases series!
Jack Probyn is the author of the DC Jake Tanner series. He hasn’t spent much time on the planet, but he knows what he wants: to entertain and enthral readers across the globe with his stories. Growing up as an only child and never owning a pet – something he reminds his parents of constantly – Jack spent a lot of time reading and writing.
After just about completing an English degree, he decided to turn his passion from a hobby into a career. When he’s not writing, he’s usually enjoying a sudoku or a true crime drama on Netflix. He lives in Surrey with his partner – who also one day dreams of owning a pet. Preferably a dog.
