2 Works in Graham Hardacre
20 Apr 2019
On a cold and rainy evening in late September, Robin Ellacott turns up on the doorstep of her partner and friend. From this day on, all would change for them. Tangled up in her problems with Matthew, another problem turns up: Donald Laing...
Together they help the police to stop this maniac and find themselves caught up in a case full of violence, separated limbs and angst. Once this is over, they life seemed to be back at normal - but it really isn't. Press isn't making their life easier and the Detective is heavily wrapped up in his feelings, when another case turns up and Strike's old army-friend "Hardy" asks for his help to solve a murder case in Edinburgh.
Flight Lieutenant Cormoran Strike has his own baggage. The older of five siblings, with a father that killed his mother and a dark past behind him, there's nothing he loves more than flying planes. Robin Ellacott is a psychologist volunteering in Afghanistan for the UK's Armed Forces, also trying to leave a dark past behind, both unsuccessfully trying to just move on. When their different personalities collide blossoming in a highly-valued friendship, they'll be forced to decide between being stuck in an unhappy past, or moving on, welcoming love and letting their wounds heal, but it's not an easy path when your past catches up with you.
