Kindred Spirits
by Jo Bannister

A kidnap attempt outside the school gates in broad daylight convinces Gabriel Ash that his renegade wife is trying to steal their sons from him. Only the intervention of his friend Constable Hazel Best kept them safe. It’s a simple if alarming explanation, but is it the truth? Hazel uncovers disturbing information about another crime, the repercussions of which are still threatening innocent lives seventeen years later.

Once again Hazel finds herself at loggerheads with her superiors. Did they really conspire to protect a murderer? And this time she isn’t getting the support she needs from Ash. She’d thought they were kindred spirits: now she’s not sure what his motives are.

One thing is certain: with her life in imminent danger, Hazel’s going to need friends like never before …


“This is a book for lovers of high-class soap opera and intelligent canines.”

Publishers Weekly

“Bannister’s cleverly plotted, gripping story offers an effective combination of straightforward procedural and suspense thriller”
