Rock climbers can’t manage to pay for to make careless mistakes. But Detective Inspector Nick Dixon’s former hiking partner, Jake Fayter, died doing just that. Or so it kind of feels. Dixon suspects foul play, but his only leads are unreliable accounts of something bizarre happening in Cheddar Gorge seconds before Jake fell.
The more Dixon learns about Jake’s life, the more he realises that Jake hadn’t been rather the man he remembered…and a large number of people could have wanted him dead. Once Dixon gets too close to the truth, those people will emerge from the shadows and kill to give protection to their secrets.
As the body count rises, Dixon bends the rules to snapping point to lure out a killer and resolve a conspiracy of silence so that they can rock the sleepy town of Burnham-on-Sea to its core.
As the Crow Flies is the electrifying first novel in the DI Nick Dixon Crime Series.
