Gun Dealing (The Ryder Quartet Book 2) by Ian Patrick
Trace the weapons and catch the assassins. Detectives on the hunt for criminals out of control. After a brutal assassination of four police constables Detective Jeremy Ryder and his team are on the case. Meticulous work on ballistics and forensics begins to shine a light in the dark world of depraved criminals. It is action all the way, counterpointed by scenes of intense emotion among victims and their families, and warm camaraderie among the detectives.
Drawing from the author’s experience accompanying detectives to the front line of crime, on exhaustive interviews with forensics officers, and on research in the exact locations where the crimes occur, this crime thriller takes the reader into the real world of dark crime in a region described as the murder capital of the world.
About the author of the Ryder Quartet Series, Ian Patrick:
‘I try to make my fiction plausible and authentic. This requires exhaustive work and detailed research. It takes me up to a year of full-time work to write an eighty thousand word crime thriller. In my view, although it is clearly desirable to arrive at one’s destination by bringing a work to publication, it is the journey that is the really exciting and enjoyable part of writing. I can only hope that readers will also enjoy the journey of discovering my characters and their foibles, their actions and their experiences. I hope, too, that they will inform me about and forgive me for any lapses in my work or any errors of detail.’
