Day 4 of my Detective Kate Hamblin blogs and today it is Book 4: KILLER ON THE LEVELS

Killer on the Levels (Kate Hamblin #4)

Buy from AMAZON

THE TOUGHEST CASE OF KATE’S CAREER

Missing journalist Ellie Landy is found in the River Parrett by a news crew covering the worst floods the Somerset Levels have suffered in living memory.

A paperback is found by the woman’s bed with a mysterious inscription mentioning “Sandman” and a time of day.

Police assume it is an accidental drowning. Kate disobeys orders from the top and probes the death, as she suspects this was no accident.

When another woman dies in suspicious circumstances, Kate finds herself drawn ever deeper into a nightmare of murder, treachery and perversion.

SHE WILL RISK EVERYTHING TO STOP A SERIAL KILLER, BEFORE THE SANDMAN PUTS ANYONE ELSE TO SLEEP.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS BOOK WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED AS SANDMAN

My Review

This is book 4 in the Kate Hamblin series. 
 
The Somerset levels have been subject to abnormal weather, the worst for 250 years, and there is a lot of flooding with Fields and hedgerows hidden underwater it is a difficult time for everyone.  Young journalist Ellie is stranded at Lowmoor having travelled there by boat but now has no way of getting back and is being hunted down.
 
Married to Hayden Kate has her work cut out.  While she is a dedicated police officer her husband is laid back verging on lazy.  An attempt to cover for the fact that he overslept comes back to bite her when the missing person he is supposedly investigating is found floating in the River Parrett.  Kate suspects murder but her superiors always looking at the budgets order her to leave it as accidental drowning.  Kates instinct is usually spot on and she is right this time as becomes clear when the pathology reports come in.
 
What had Ellie stumbled upon that got her killed?  As Kate and Hayden continue to investigate on the quiet they soon find themselves getting tangled up in the dark grimy world of drugs.
 
This is a gripping page turner as we follow Kate into a world of lies, corruption and danger.  Another great addition to a brilliant detective series.
