WORTH KILLING FOR ED JAMES

A DI FENCHURCH NOVEL

On a busy London street, a young woman is attacked in broad daylight and left bleeding to death on the pavement. Among the eyewitnesses are DI Simon Fenchurch and his wife.

Fenchurch pursues the attacker through a warren of backstreets and eventually arrests a young hoodie with a cache of stolen phones—an ‘Apple picker’ on the make. The case should be closed but something feels off…Was this really just about a smartphone? Why did the victim look nervous before she was targeted? And why don’t the prints on the murder weapon match the young man in custody?

Before Fenchurch can probe further, his superiors remove him from the case, convinced he has let the real culprit run free. But Fenchurch is determined to get to the truth and, before long, uncovers a conspiracy that reaches high above the street gangs of London.

MY REVIEW

This is my first book by Ed James. The characters voices make this novel worth reading. DI Simon Frenchurch see a young boy stab a young girl with his own eyes. The girl died not long after she was stabbed. After stabbing the young girl he cycled away, but DI Frenchurch chased him and caught him. Why does this young boy have seven smartphones on him when he was arrested? The boy claims that he has had evidence planted on him and it’s racists and the phone is not his. Have they the right young man in custody?
