Overview

Last to Leave is the third in the DS Ronnie Delmar series - police procedural meets psychological thriller, with a kick-ass female protagonist set against the backdrop of the police misconduct scandals in the UK. The third book in the DS Ronnie Delmar detective series begins when Hannah Lloyd is pushed from her third-floor balcony at the end of her birthday lunch party. Suspicion naturally falls upon the three guests who had just left the apartment, alongside Hannah's estranged husband and a jealous neighbour. But as the investigation develops, so does the network of suspects, eventually revealing a chilling connection between the crime and those in charge of preventing it. Forced to work alongside her arch-nemesis DCI Matt Preedy, Ronnie finds herself looking over her shoulder at her own colleagues and questioning the motives of those she thought she trusted.

Reviews

'Tense and timely, Martin asks the questions on everyone's lips right now, about policing and violence, secrets and lies. This is a belter of a book, that's as gripping as it is chilling.' Helen Fields 'Twists, secrets and suspects galore - a thrilling read.' BA Paris 'Tight writing and an engaging narrative with great depth of characters. Martin's writing just keeps getting better and better.' Louise Mangos 'A cleverly plotted, fast-paced police procedural with one of the most authentic detectives in crime fiction today - and an ending you will not see coming.' Sarah Clarke 'Ronnie absolutely kicks butt. Refreshing, compulsive, with strong characters and terrific plot twists.' DE White 'Super smart - this case will keep you guessing to the last page.' Jacqueline Sutherland 'A dark, taut thriller that was utterly gripping. The suspense ratchets up with every page.' Victoria Dowd 'A satisfyingly complex contemporary police procedural that builds to a clever and convincing conclusion.' Greg Mosse 'Richly drawn characters, a plethora of motives and a healthy dose of paranoia. What's not to like?' Paul Gitsham 'Placing violence against women and misogyny in the police force in the heart of this story, Lucy Martin has written a compelling and complex novel. This locked room mystery kept me guessing until the end.' Joy Kluver 'Tense, twisty and fast-paced, the compelling plotline and clever writing kept me guessing right up to the nail-biting finale.' AA Chaudhuri
