The DCI Jones Casebook: Raymond Collins


Birmingham, England, a sunny day in the city park. Children play, adults walk – and a man lies dead in a pool of blood. His terrified fiancé screams for help. The assailant smiles, waves goodbye, and strolls away into the city…

DCI David Jones, and his protege, Detective Sergeant Phil Cryer are called to investigate the most difficult of crimes – an apparently motiveless and random attack. Hampered by a lack of resources, Jones and Cryer have to act quickly to prevent a murder spree.

What Reviewers Say About
The DCI Jones Casebook: Raymond Collins

“In the first in the DCI Jones Casebooks, Kerry Donovan takes us into the minds and lives of both the innocent and the guilty, the killer, and the ones tasked to bring him to justice, with a depth and skill that kept me reading the entire book in one sitting. I’m a self-confessed lover of English culture, and the settings and characters are wonderfully formed, and full of intricacies and nuances that give them a rich genuineness. This Casebook is a good old-fashioned cops and robbers tale and an excellent introduction to the world of DCI Jones. I can’t wait for the next instalment.”
– Michaela Miles

“If you’re looking for a quick, true-to-life crime story, than Donovan’s DCI Jones: Collins will suit you. The characters all seem like someone one you may have met, and lack the cliches that those CSI shows seem to throw at you. The investigators aren’t cold-blooded savants; they react emotionally to the crime around them and anticipate how it will affect people’s lives. They feel stressed and pressured to make progress while managing the day-to-day responsibilities of crime investigation. Looking forward to more in the series.”
– Matt (Amazon)

“I loved it! It was gripping from the very first page and didn’t disappoint. The characters were believable and intriguing. I can’t wait for the next in the series.”
– Smitty (Amazon)

“A great read with a hook on the end, as all good murder mysteries should have. Move over Sherlock Holmes, here one that can shoulder to shoulder to you.”
– Jordan (Amazon)
