Twenty-seven bodies, vacuum-packed, buried in a woodland trench – some have been there for years, some for just days.
DI Foley finds himself the Senior Investigating Officer on one of the largest murder cases the country has ever seen. This could make his career.
But as new discoveries unfold, this horrific gangland crime suddenly gets personal. Too personal.
Foley has a choice. Solve the crime and risk his family? Or leave well alone?
To a man like Brendan, that’s no choice at all…
Far From the Tree is the first in the Thirty Miles Trilogy and was an Audible #1 Bestseller.
Rob Parker is a married father of three, who lives in Warrington, UK. The author of the Ben Bracken thrillers, Crook’s Hollow and the #1 Audible bestseller Far FromThe Tree enjoys a rural life, writing horrible things between school runs. Rob writes full time, attends various author events across the UK, and boxes regularly for charity.
He spends a lot of time in schools across the North, encouraging literacy, story-telling and creative-writing, and somehow squeezes in time to co-host the For Your Reconsideration film podcast, appear regularly on The Blood Brothers Crime Podcast, and is a member of the Northern Crime Syndicate.
Where do you start when it’s a Rob Parker book? Wow just doesn’t cut it.
Yet, again Rob Parker bats it straight out of the field, with this police procedural with a distinct difference. As you come to expect if you have read any of his previous work. And quite honestly, the unexpected is the ONLY thing you can expect, because if you ever think you have the writing style and where he’s going to go next, you will surely be wrong!
Rob Parker is a writer to really be watching closely as his work has many angles. You feel the rawness of the bereaved within this. The possibility of the event near the end had me welling up and thinking did that just happen. I found the sleight of hand in this mans writing once more, as I was tricked.
An excellent novel and I cannot wait for book 2!
