Down Among the Dead (DI Nick Dixon Crime Book 10) Kindle Edition
Somerset’s bloody past meets a dangerous present in this thriller from the bestselling DI Nick Dixon crime series.
When a badly decomposed body is discovered during an archaeological dig on the Sedgemoor battlefield, Avon and Somerset police are notified immediately. The remains are recent, and Detective Chief Inspector Peter Lewis knows exactly who they have found.
A single stab wound from a curved blade implicates convicted serial killer Daniel Parker, who Lewis arrested fifteen years ago.
With Parker’s appeal hearing imminent, Lewis comes under intense pressure to pin this new murder on him quickly and quietly. It’s an open and shut case—and Lewis should know—so why then does he insist on assigning it to DI Nick Dixon?
As Dixon starts to re-examine the original investigation, shocking revelations come in from the forensics team. And just as Dixon’s worst fears begin to surface, another body is found…

From the very first book in the series, I thought this author had something and is now producing some of the best crime novels in the land - beautifully set up, incredibly well developed and written with style and attention to detail.
I always think it's a sure sign of an enthralling book if reading it makes you go find another book about a subject brought up in said same book. I've done this far too many times to mention with this series - this time reading up on the Battle of Sedgemoor and even reading a biography on the Duke of Monmouth (which was also excellent by the way!)
If a novel improves your knowledge at the same time as it entertains you, then all is right with the world...
A v rare 5 stars from me (I don't give them out like Smarties) but this book was everything you could want in a police procedural and more.
Massively recommended, go buy!
His local knowledge shines out in this difficult to put down book, a work enhanced by his extensive knowledge of the UK legal system.
