The body of an elderly man is found in an abandoned World War Two pillbox beside the Bridgwater and Taunton Canal. With no obvious motive and no credible suspect, DI Nick Dixon starts digging into the victim’s past.
The more he digs, the deeper Dixon is drawn into a case that takes him from the cave systems beneath rural Somerset to the heart of government, and threatens to expose a military cover-up at the highest level.
Blocked by a wall of silence, Dixon must unravel a dangerous conspiracy before the killer strikes again.
Death Sentence is the highly anticipated sixth book in the bestselling DI Nick Dixon Crime Series.
‘Damien uses his knowledge of the law and his time with the CPS to once again create a plausible yet tight plot, and the amount of time put into the research necessary for a book of this quality has clearly paid off. The manner in which the layers of the plot are peeled back is both masterly and creative.’
‘Whether it’s the lead character himself, his methods, the cases he has to solve, even if it’s just the fact that he dotes on his dog something sets this series apart from the rest. Something that will have me waiting for book 7 with bated breath.’
‘Death Sentence is gritty, fast paced and brilliantly researched.’
