Consequently, she knew how the system worked, and was always fiercely loyal to the force without being blinkered to its faults. Forced to retire early through no fault of her own, she has now returned to the force as a civilian consultant on cold cases. As this is the final book in the series, I want to say very little about the plot — except that it neatly ties up all the loose ends from the series.
A Narrow Trajectory
This is a very short pages novel, and whilst I enjoyed it, I did see some of the twists coming before they happened. I also felt that the subject matter was somewhat darker than any of the previous cases. Faith Martin was born in Oxford, and has spent all her life within twenty miles of the university city, even working at Somerville College for five years before turning to writing full-time. A popular writer for over 25 years, she has had nearly 50 novels published so far.
