The Silent JuroreBook - 2016
DI Jack Whitmell feels a little like a "dinosaur" because he firmly believes in good old police methods and struggles a little with the new political correctness invading the workplace. He returns to work after being injured while off duty because he 'got it wrong' with a suspect during an investigation into people trafficking called Operation Footfall. Having resolved to do his penance of checking cold cases because of his earlier mistake, he is unexpectedly given the job of investigating the murder of someone who might have been connected to his earlier case. Initially everything seems straightforward but he soon finds himself looking at possible connections with other events and questions arise as to why his chief inspector is getting pressure to close Operation Footfall down. Teamed with a new detective sergeant he interviews a woman who was well known in the "escort" business and who has a surprising connection to his senior officer. His investigation takes him in two directions and he can't be too sure that he is not going to implicate some people very high up in society. The problem is, who can he trust?
