White Lilies is the third novel in the RC BRIDGESTOCK DI JACK DYLAN SERIES in which Bob brings unique insight and experience from how real life cases are conducted into page turning gripping fiction, aided by his wife Carol, who also worked for the police. This combination adds authenticity rarely seen in British crime fiction, coupled with warmth, humour and humanity.

DI Jack Dylan’s promise to Jen is to spend more time at home in this latest novel; after all she is expecting their first child. However ‘the job,’ as in reality, takes over. Two fatal road accidents, an elderly lady found battered to death, two girls brutally attacked, a chief suspect found dead, a life threatening hostage negotiation and a stabbing all happen as a newly promoted attractive Sergeant is added to the mix, which is truly genuine in voice and substance. Whilst Dylan is confronted by a madman, Jen goes into labour alone only to find herself in hospital with her arch enemy at her side and the question is will Dylan make it to the birth in time and secure justice for the victims of the crimes?

Consequences is the second in the DI DYLAN SERIES although all books stand alone. It is a pacy thriller seen through the eyes of detective hero, Jack Dylan, who lets the job take over his life leaving his girlfriend behind with no one to support her when she thinks she has cancer. With so much already on his plate can Dylan save his relationship with the one person who keeps him grounded and sane, and even if he can is it already too late?

Detective Inspector Jack Dylan’s list of things to do is getting out of control. He has two unconnected murders to solve. One victim is a small child and the other a young woman; plus a missing detective to find. Long hours are part of the job, but does he have the time to figure out the pieces to the crime jigsaws, and save his relationship?

The young woman’s unidentifiable body is found in dramatic circumstances. A harrowing murder of a small child adds to Dylan’s workload plus a detective sergeant who it seems has lost his focus in life.

With the pressure mounting, Dylan has to solve the murder of Liz, a young woman found burned alive in a public park. He also has to find out where half a million pounds of the young woman’s money has gone and how his missing sergeant may be involved in the whole sorry mess. Usually the search for the murderer begins with the immediate family but the dead woman’s husband is in prison. CONSEQUENCES shows the steps the detectives must take to find the answer to the question – who killed Liz?

Deadly Focus 

DEADLY FOCUS is the first in the DI DYLAN SERIES in which Bob brings unique insight and experience from how real life cases are conducted into page turning gripping fiction, aided by his wife Carol, who also worked for the police. This combination adds authenticity rarely seen in British crime fiction, coupled with warmth, humour and humanity.

Be prepared to experience the sense of emotion, tension and intrigue through the eyes of a man who has taken charge of many real life murder enquiries and his co-author wife, to make this fictional tale believable in every way.

Deadly Focus is a fast moving, gripping thriller in which the reader travels with DI Jack Dylan throughout his enquiries, living and breathing the pursuit of the sadistic murderer, through his eyes. A schoolgirl vanishes; everyone becomes a suspect. Murder is chilling and full of mystery; nobody’s child is safe. It is the ultimate and relentless test for the man in charge of the enquiry and his team but the killer is one step ahead and another body is found.

Will it prove too much as both Dylan’s health and private life begins to suffer? DI Dylan is under the microscope and struggles to find a balance between his passion for his job and his love for his partner Jen. Will he be able to maintain the impetus to bring the perpetrator to justice and secure justice for the victims’ families?

N.B – All books in the series also stand alone.

  • When are you coming to Norwich? I’d love to attend one of your events. xx

    • Yeah! We will have to come and see you Geraldine! :-) Happy Easter! x

  • Carol, I wish I could be in England to attend an event. Unfortunately, that won’t be happening any time soon. I’d also love to get my hands on any of your books. Getting them on Amazon UK, however, doesn’t happen either. They don’t like us much in the States, though I’ve never figured out why exactly that is. :)

    Good luck on future sales, though. It’s always sounded like a really good series. I love English mysteries and crime fiction, but it’s hard to get hands on it over here. Have a great tour.

  • Hi Carol & Bob, have read & thoroughly enjoyed your latest crime thriller “White Lilies” and would love to be entered into the draw to win a signed paperback.
