It doesn't stop there, as the story develops, we feel for the victims of the crimes. The story and how it unfolds is excellently crafted.
This is far more true to life with police procedures and forensics. I did read this book for free and I do intend buying the follow up. For once it was a pleasure to read a book where there was closure for the crimes and only a personal issue left for the following edition.
Fragile Cord (DS Coupland, #1) by Emma Salisbury
I am very much against the latest American mode of leaving books without endings in a scam to sell the follow ups. In this case it didn't offend as it wasn't relevant to the main story of the book. I won't go into any details regarding the book itself so as not to spoil it for future readers, but I do recommend this book, good dialogue and a good story. A well written, well developed storyline with complex characters.
This is not a novel for those who want a quick, uncomplicated read.

Fragile Cord is more of a "Why" rather than a "Who" done it. An original plot with believable characters. This Book was intriguing. Kept me guessing the whole way through. A lot of twists I didn't see coming. Was a good read, I would recommend it. It took me a little while to get into the story.
I was several chapters in and about to give up when it all started to come together. I highly recommend this one. This was a wonderful suspenseful read. Salisbury keeps you guessing as she waits to reveal things hinted at.

- Three Imposters and Other Stories.
The characters are real and believable. I really appreciated that she wrapped things up at the end, leaving you with a good feeling of completeness and closure.
She may end her chapters with a "cliffhanger" but she neatly brings together all the lose ends at the close.

A small boy lies drowned in the bottom of a bath His mother is found with a noose around her neck The local community is in shock. Introducing Salford detectives Kevin Coupland and Alex Moreton as they investigate what appears to be a routine murder-suicide. Tracey Kavanagh was her usual upbeat self; right up until the moment she drowned her son and tied a rope around her neck killing herself and her unborn child.
For Alex Moreton, this case couldn't have come at a worse time, battling with her partner over whether to have another child, she is superstitious about pushing their luck - they're happy enough as they are DS Kevin Coupland is dealing with a serious assault outside a wine bar in Swinton. Devoted family man Ricky Wilson is brutally stabbed following an altercation with youths while out with his wife and their children to celebrate her birthday. Coupland and Moreton's cases merge when it transpires that Tracey and Ricky were tragically connected.
Is it possible that there could be more to these two investigations than pure coincidence? And what was Tracey Kavanagh so frightened of she thought wiping out her family was the answer?
