This story is set in a small seaside town in Somerset called Burnham on Sea.
Detective Nick Dixon is newly moved back to the area from London.
He is investigating the death of his old Rock climbing partner Jake Fayter who fell in a climbing accident, it looks like there was foul play involved.
It turns out Jake was a small time Drug dealer and Rare bird ggg stealer him and his accomplice Dan Hunter were doing this and sending the rare eggs to Dubai.
Dan's body is found shot at the bottom of the River.
Detective Nixon finds a secret Twtter account belonging to Jake he then flushes out the Murderer by pretending to be Jake's girlfriend Sarah.
The Murderer of Dan Hunter is a Policeman called Steve Gorman who then shoots himself.
It then turns out Jake actually killed himself and made it look like a Rock climbing accident.

OK book far to much technical stuff about Rock climbing for my liking though. ( )

Detective Inspector Nick Dixon's former climbing partner, Jake Fayter, is dead, and his parents beg Nick into looking into the circumstances.

I wasn't sure I'd like this book - the first chapter is all about rock climbing (which I know nothing about), but it's part of the mystery. The characters are interesting and very well developed, and, althought this probably won't come out right.. the location of the story is in rural England, but the book wasn't too 'British' for me to follow easily.

I am planning on getting the next in the series - Head In the Sand. ( )

A short book and I think a new author. Not bad. Will look for more from this writer. ( )

In the Prologue we are there when Jake Fayter falls from the Crow climb at Cheddar Gorge. The fall is so uncharacteristic of Jake who is Nick Dixon's former climbing partner that Jake's father John contacts Nick to ensure that the police carry out an investigation into whether this really was an accident.

The book nearly lost me right at the very beginning: the details about climbing felt so very technical that I wondered whether I would persist.

Dixon is newly appointed to the Avon & Somerset police and is currently involved in a case where funeral notices appear to be leading to burglaries. Nevertheless, on a Sunday, when he gets Jake's father's call, he heads over to Cheddar Gorge to see the scene of the accident himself. He decides that, for his own peace of mind, there is something to investigate.

This is one of those novels firmly bedded in the 21st century: FaceBook, Twitter, mobile phones and the tracing of calls etc. I understood most of that but it did add to the technicality of the plot, and wouldn't suit every reader.

There are now 9 titles in the series, and it will be interesting to read another to see what direction the author has taken. Here is the list from Fantastic Fiction.
1. As The Crow Flies (2013)
2. Head In The Sand (2013)
3. Kickback (2014)
4. Swansong (2015)
5. Dead Level (2016)
6. Death Sentence (2016)
7. Heads or Tails (2017)
8. Dead Lock (2018)
9. Beyond the Point (2019) ( )

Mildly Interesting

The technical references to climbing might be fun for those in the know. I thought it slowed the pace down considerably. The characters are lightly drawn in but I liked the main character. Not a lot of mystery but still an interesting read. May or may ot buy the next books in the series. ( )
