A fractured marriage. A silent family. A secret worth killing for.

When DC Cat Kinsella is approached by Joseph Madden for help with his wife, Rachel, there’s not much she can do. Joseph claims that Rachel has been threatening him, but can’t – or won’t – give Cat details as to why. Dismissing it as a marriage on the rocks, Cat forgets about it.

That is until Naomi Lockhart, a young PA, is found dead after a party attended by both Joseph and Rachel, and Joseph is arrested for the murder.

Joseph says his wife is setting him up. His wife says he didn’t do it. The trail of evidence leads to even more questions . . .

Adulterer. Murderer. Victim. Who would you believe?

Review 2017

Stone Cold Heart is a superbly written crime thriller featuring Cat Kinsella, a young strong police officer, as the lead character who is always determined to find the truth, no matter the cost.

The plot captivated me from the first page and took me into this thrilling tale full of family secrets and lies.

I just adored Cat Kinsella’s character, she’s not perfect but goes all out to solve the death/murder of Naomi Lockheart, a PA who was found dead after attending a party. I also had a soft spot for Cat’s working partner Luigi Parnell who is a seasoned police officer. He too wanted justice but he also added humour to this story. These two characters are so well described that they came to life in my mind and made me feel as if I knew them already. I also loved the connection between them as it had been written so well.

The book was utterly compelling, so much so it kept me reading late into the night unable to put it down! I enjoyed the chapter where all was finally revealed but the final chapter, that was just amazing even if it did finish on a cliff hanger. I now can’t wait to read more books featuring Cat Kinsella and also from author Caz Frear too.

A huge well done to the author for such a fabulous read, I will be recommending this book to all my family and friends.

About the Author

Caz Frear

Caz Frear grew up in Coventry and spent her teenage years dreaming of moving to London and writing a novel. After fulfilling her first dream, it wasn’t until she moved back to Coventry thirteen years later that the writing dream finally came true.

She has a first-class degree in History & Politics, which she’s put to enormous use over the years by working as a waitress, shop assistant, retail merchandiser and, for the past twelve years, a headhunter.

When she’s not agonising over snappy dialogue or incisive prose, she can be found shouting at the TV when Arsenal are playing or holding court in the pub on topics she knows nothing about.
