"This is the second novel in the Nina Foster series and having read the first one, Never Forget, I can say that Cutts comes back stronger than ever with this book" Goodreads.com
‘Never Forget’ is the first in a compelling series of crime fiction novels introducing DC Nina Foster, an engaging lead character in a pacy crime thriller that grips you to the very last page.
‘Never Forget’ brings a new dimension to the genre - a unique insight into the police Major Incident Room - the heart of any investigation. Nina is exposed for the first time in her career to an enquiry into a brutal series of murders.
As the drama unfolds, Nina’s own story weaves into the narrative and her past, present and future become entwined in events as the investigation gathers momentum. As she battles to keep her past at bay and her future secure, her colleagues and even suspects seem to have a hand in her fate.
A story with a shocking twist, ‘Never Forget’ promises to deliver something not yet found in crime fiction - the reality of real life experience and the imagination of a true story teller.
This second book in the DC Nina Foster series (now optioned for a major TV drama) is a taut and gripping police procedural crime novel.
Returning to work after recovering from a serious injury, the feisty and determined policewoman is initially assigned to a desk job to keep her out of harm's way. But as she re-visits the investigation of the infamous 1964 Wickerstead Valley train crash, she finds new evidence that might link that fatal accident to a current spate of heroin-related deaths.
Tracking down witnesses, she comes face to face with the notorious Rumbly family and uncovers a network of drug dealers who will stop at nothing to protect their criminal empire.
With danger mounting at work, Nina’s mental and physical capacities are tested to their limits; her home life begins to suffer and she struggles to make time for the new man in her life, Bill Harrison.
Brilliantly plotted and fast-paced, Remember, Remember confirms Nina Foster as a heroine for our times and cements Lisa Cutts' reputation as an author of gripping fiction straight from the frontline of modern policing.
The violent death of a local sex offender puts intense pressure on the police officers at East Rise incident room. Under constant scrutiny, they must treat this case like any other murder. But how can they feel sympathy knowing the terrible things Albie Woodville did?
However, as the investigation progresses, it becomes clear this isn't just a one-off killing - someone is out for revenge...
