    Another book that was a pleasure to read from start to finish.Although the ninth in a series of police procedurals set among the murder investigation team of the Avon and Somerset force it reads as a stand alone Further it is steeped in layers of mystery and faced paced action.As a fan of the author and his characters it is a delight to receive an early copy of Beyond the Point I was not disappointed and the novel was all consuming I liked that it was a straight time line of an investigation based on a hunt for a serial killer on the run and foolishly straying into Nick s patch.DI Nick Dixon and his faithful team are relentless in their pursuit of the fugitive and finally track him down at Hinckley Point.This is riveting stuff, intense action and creatively written Yet the unfolding of this case reveals a conspiracy far greater in its greed and equally without a thought to the lives that are taken and affected by the need to keep the criminality a secret.Nick goes into a zone, focusing on justice for the victims and with a zeal that he truth will be revealed.At times frustrated by a lack of evidence but determined to ...

    Another good West Country police procedural featuring DI Nick Dixon an interesting character well developed but without the personal problems or neuroses many fictional policemen are saddled with to make them interesting.

    I can always rely on Damien Boyd for a good, solid police procedural and nice to get it on my Kindle Unlimited subscription This deals with a serial killer who goes on the loose at nuclear power station Hinckley Point The story that thereby unravels is satisfyingly complex, having its roots in corruption and fixing many years ago I like the Somerset setting of Boyd s books and his characters DI Dixon, his police officer girlfriend Jane though is it a bit sexist to always call Dixon Dixon and Jane Jane his dog Monty and their police colleagues Monty has a big role in this one, leading to one of Dixon s all time enemies being put away I won t give anything away, but it s a good sub plot Today s series detectives always have a characteristic issue problem eg Strike and his prosthesis and Dixon has diabetes I was intrigu...

    It had been some time since I read the 8th book in this series so I had to download the 8th book again to refresh my memory about Steiner, a psychopath who makes appearances in both 8th and 9th Of course this meant it was worth my while to join Kindle Unlimited for a month and pick up a couple books I had interest in I am now up to date with DI Nick Dixon and don t want to spoil this one for others other than to recommend that the books really need to be read in order Dixon has many admirable qualities as does his partner Jane.Within the chaotic carried over search for Steiner, another deadly series of crimes is uncovered linked to a major nuclear power plant construction project in Somerset, Hinckley Point C Wherever billions of dollars in construction costs are at stake, temptation pres...

    2.5 stars This was a solid installment of the series, but I have to be honest I was a bit bored Out of the modern police procedurals written by an author in the UK, I probably have the most trouble understanding Damien Boyd s lingo, without googling quite a few terms, that is It doesn t seem to be a problem when I read a couple of his books in a row, but since it s been a while for me since his last book, I had a hard time getting into this one This is not pointed out as a complaint or even as constructive criticism rather, it s an explanation of my rating of this book.The mystery aspect of this story was alright, but my enjoyment was hampered by the many googling sessions I did for the construction terms I felt confident enough to guess at some of them, but some were too important so I had to look them up At the very least, it definitely seemed like Boyd thoroughly researched the setting that strongly influenced the p...

    Another enjoyable outing by DI Dixon but, as per my comments on Dead Lock, it is once again all moved forward by Dixon s ideas and intuition and no one else contributes to the resolution of the case Some are neutral, others hamper progress, the rest are just drones And then there is the small matter of clearing complex cases and receiving no appreciation by way of promotion or trust It seems that taking villains off the street is no longer a path to professional advancement what a strange police fo...

    Good as alwaysOne thing I appreciate about British crime novels is their reliance on the plot and characters, rather than guns and beast downs, to make the story interesting Damien Boyd lives up to this great tradition Nick Dixon is a character we can relate to with his foibles and his relentless search for justice Four stars because of two i...

    I have so enjoyed the previous 8 books in the Nick Dixon series that I was thrilled when I won a copy of the newest in a Goodreads giveaway And it did not disappoint Although I must admit I continue to read the books as much to follow the personal lives of Nick, Jane, and Monty their dog as I do to learn about the constructio...
