indie ebook cover

Sergeant Major Crane, a Special Investigations Branch Investigator, in the Armed Forces, is a proud, dedicated and experienced soldier, constrained by the Army structure, but adept at manipulating the system. He and his young team of Staff Sergeant Billy Williams and Sergeant Kim Weston, based at Aldershot Garrison, have to investigate one of the most horrific cases they have ever taken on. A soldier who has deliberately murdered his
wife and 6 year old son and then committed suicide.

Crane wants to know what is behind this horrific act, but has to battle against cynical opposition from his Officer Commanding, Captain James Edwards who makes him investigate a different crime. But Crane is vindicated when a second copy cat murder suicide by a soldier in Colchester is followed by a third in Catterick. All three soldiers had served in Afghanistan and all had religious pamphlets, making Crane ask himself what the soldiers wanted to be saved from? Do the pamphlets offer salvation, or slaughter?
