Handy Man (Calladine & Bayliss 1), by HH Durrant
Was it gang warfare? Was it about drugs? Was someone new shaking a serious fist at the old guard? DI Tom Calladine didn’t think so. He trusted his instincts and they told him that this was something else entirely. This was murder – brutal and gory in the extreme. Someone was secretly working on a quest of his own. This someone was a murderer with an inventive mind who killed with skill and left bloody remnants of his victims strewn all over his patch. Finding the culprit would prove challenging and in the end give him the shock of his career so far.

First in the Calladine and Bayliss series of detective novels.
