ISBN: 9780956914170 Géneros: 12:FA:Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945);12:FF:Crime & mysterySinopsis: When blood and rust taste the same you know someone is going to die... Kitty Lockwood, a Northumberland county police officer, struggles to gain respect from her male colleagues while following her instinct about a property millionaire who on the surface appears to have committed no crime. But Kitty won’t give up and her tenacity uncovers a bloody mystery of organised crime and psychotic murder. When single mother Kitty finds a distraught young woman wandering down a country lane she returns her to her remote farmhouse, miles from the nearest town of Bellingham in North East England. After meeting the woman’s wealthy but disturbingly handsome husband, ex-banker Richard Kane, Kitty begins to suspect the young woman is a victim of emotional abuse and domestic violence. She raises her concerns with her superior officers and other detectives, but as she has no evidence, they brush her suspicions aside. But Kitty cannot let it go and starts an unauthorised investigation. Meanwhile, a Bonnie and Clyde couple are making their way towards the farmhouse to fulfil a contract that can only end in death. Following in a long tradition of British crime writers such as Val McDermid (Wire in the Blood), Ian Rankin (Rebus) and PD James (Adam Dalgliesh, Cordelia Gray) Tony Glover has created an emotionally and psychologically complex novel that probes the depths of the criminal mind. Glover, an award-winning filmmaker, screenwriter and playwright (BBC North Playwright of the Year, Royal Television Society award winner) has taken his gift as a screenwriter and made it work in another medium in this, his debut novel. The visual landscapes that he creates are tangible. In much the same way as you can see and feel Sweden in Henning Mankell’s Wallander or the streets of Paris in any Fred Vargas novel, the sense of place in Cars Just Want to be Rust is palpable. From the ancient stones of Hadrian’s Wall to the achingly beautiful Cheviot hills, to the Geordie accents of the characters, this is a novel rooted in North East England. Endorsements 'Cars Just Want to be Rust brilliantly captures the mood, momentum and methodology of police procedure as Glover's heroine, Kitty Lockwood, moves her investigation forward, demonstrating the sort of 'canny' determination and perspicacity possessed of the most successful investigators. Glover takes his gifted and insightful character on a convincing journey, through the traps of inter-departmental rivalry, towards a satisfying resolution.' Barry Stewart - former Detective Chief Superintendent, Northumbria Police 'This book grips you from the very first page. And before you know it, you care. You care about what happens. You care about who it happens to and you even care – in some sad, empathetic way – for the people who do it to them.' Fiona Veitch Smith - author of The Peace Garden LS_,
