In Knives We Trust

Cover Illustration by Jason O’Brien

My first novel, In Knives We Trust, is set in Swansea in 1880, the first in what I hope will be a series of novels about Police Inspector Rumsey Bucke.

Inspector Rumsey Bucke, who is still struggling to come to terms with the death of his wife and children, has to find Daniel Guy who has tried – and failed – to murder his own wife. Guy disappears  into Swansea’s poorest communities, and an incompetent police force is unable to find him. Two fatal stabbings, one on Green Dragon Street and another in the Uplands,  put Bucke’s position under threat from a devious superior.  However, he finds the will and the support to change his life from an unlikely source and as he finally confronts his own sorrow, he discovers that terrible secrets lurk beneath the surface of the ordinary lives around him. No one can ever escape from the secret burdens they carry with them.

But there are unknown figures lurking in the shadows and  assassins are involved in  a clandestine war on the streets of the town, ready to kill the innocent to protect themselves.  Who is the murderer? Is it Daniel Guy? Is it someone else? Just how many murderers are there? And if, as they say, justice is blind, are there occasions when the law should be blind too?
