The Chosen Ones (DC Ian Bradshaw #4) Reviews
Set In Durham and flitting between the 1970's, 80's and 90's this whole tale begins to make some sense after a long investigation.
8 police officers are suspended from duty as a result of one being found accepting bribes. This leaves the balance of detectives in the team, thin on the ground. DS Ian Bradshaw is instructed to investigate a missing woman who transpires to be the latest one in a series. As in the past, he enlists the help of Tom and Helen who are investigative reporters. They are goo ...more
This being the fourth in the series, usual series rules apply. Although the main story is self-contained, one of the big things about this series in my opinion is the dynamic between the three main characters and so, to get the best from them and their interconnected backstories, it would be better to start from book one and read in order.
Well, king of the unsolvable case, Ian Bradshaw, is once again called upon to take up the reins of the stalled investigation into missing women. Again, as usua ...more
DC Ian Bradshaw #4
Eva Dunbar wakes up in a large metal box. She has no idea how she got there or who had taken her. Eva is not the first person to disappear. Detective Ian Bradshaw has no leads.
When a body is found, the police hope the discovery will at least provide a clue that will help them find the kidnapper. This book features Detective Ian Bradshaw and journalist Tom Clancy. Bradshaw seems to get the jobs no one else wants to do. This is a fast paced, tense, gripping roller coaster of a re ...more
" Yeah " I have found an author of gritty northern crime that I haven't read before. This book is the fourth in a series about Detective Ian Bradshaw with journalists Tom Carney and Helen Norton. The two journalists have a knack of routing out information that the police would find hard to get hold of so they make a great team. Although it's the fourth in the series there was just enough background information for it to work well as a stand alone but obviously the series would be best read in or ...more
There’s a lot to get your teeth in to with this book. Detective Ian Bradshaw and the journalist Tom Carney are a good duo and they always seem to do the unexpected which I really enjoy. The things that get thrown at them! Ian Bradshaw is a good cop as he’s nor one of the group and does things his own way. I like that and he and Tom work together very well indeed.
This case - a girl trapped in a steel box under ground. There’s a lot of fear and claustrophobia throughout the book and it’s chillingl ...more
This is the fourth book in the series featuring Detective Ian Bradshaw and the journalist Tom Carney. I’ve read the previous three in the series and I loved them all and it was with some excitement that I picked up the new book in the series. I was not to be disappointed because I absolutely flipping well loved reading ‘The Chosen Ones’ but more about that in a bit.
I love the character of Detective Ian Bradshaw. He is a career policeman, who tends to get all the crappy jobs to do. Those crappy s ...more

First of all, thank you to Penguin Random House UK for sending me a copy if this book! As always, all opinions and thoughts are my own!
Going into this, I had no idea that this was actually the fourth book that had been written featuring Detective Ian Bradshaw and Journalist Tom Carney. However, it was one of those great books in a series that didn’t elude much to what had happened in previous books which was great as it meant that I didn’t feel like ...more
The Chosen Ones by Howard Linskey is a dark, scary police procedural story.
Young women are disappearing and DI Bradshaw has to investigate if they have gone of their own accord or been taken or kidnapped.
This is the fourth book in the series and I felt that I was missing the background of the professionals involved and I think this spoilt my enjoyment of the book a little.
I would like to thank NetGalley, Penguin UK - Michael Joseph for inviting me to read this e-book in exchange for an honest re ...more
