BROUGHT IN DEAD (Police Proc-England-1960s) – G
Higgins, Jack (originally published under Harry Patterson- 21st book
Berkley Publishing Group, 2004 (reprint from 1967)-
Det. Sargeant Nick Miller removes the body of a young woman, an apparent suicide, from the river where her body has been found. It soon becomes clear she had tried to secret her identity. Once he learns her name and notify her family, the father becomes more than a grieving parent, but a man out for revenge.
It's interesting to see Higgins move from spy thrillers to police procedurals, but gadgets and strong, clever good guys haven't been left behind. This is a fun, quick read, perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
