Beyond the Point by Damien Boyd book 9 in the DI Nick Dixon series.
Set in Somerset, these books began with As the Crow Flies and follow Nick Dixon and his team as they patrol the towns and villages around Weston-super-Mare and Bridgewater. Nick Dixon lives in sleepy Burnham-on-Sea with his dog Monty and drives around in his clapped out Land Rover. The series progresses at a fast pace with the characters developing nicely.
As with most books in this genre, it’s best to read them in order. Indeed, book nine follows on from the previous one and would be quite confusing read as a stand-alone novel.
A serial killer is on the run and DI Dixon has a vested interest in capturing him. Things get rather twisty when a civilian police worker is found to be missing and her house is covered in blood. The team are stretched to the limits with political pressure from on high making a tense situation almost unworkable.
The series has yet to disappoint and this book is up there with the best in the series. Roll on number ten!
