The Twisted Knot is book two in the Constable Sammi Willis novels but can be read as a stand-alone. Sammie has returned to work in a small country police station, after a traumatic experience. She starts out on desk duties but is soon thrown into the deep end as a local man is accused of abusing a child – again. A previous case went without charges, and the community want his blood this time around.
When he is found hanging in his shed it seems justice has been done. But as Sammi and her colleagues start to question the family, cracks begin to appear in the case.
For those interested in the way that the justice system works, and doesn’t in some cases, this novel reflects Peace’s time in the force.
