Congratulations to C V Chauhan, whose gritty urban thriller, Shattered Dreams, is published today! Shattered Dreams is the second book in the Inspector Sharma series.
When a body is found in Charnwood Forest in Leicestershire, Detective Inspector Rohan Sharma is called to the scene.
But before he can get there, a young woman arrives on his doorstep, saying she is scared for her life and asking for his help.
Before he can take down her details, she runs away.
And when Sharma reaches the crime scene, what he finds leaves him bewildered.
The prone body lying on the ground is of a man in full diving gear. He looks to have been dead for a while, but there is no obvious cause of death.
And before long, a second body is discovered, this time in the local river. It is a naked woman, with her head and hands missing.
Her build is similar to that of the mysterious woman on Sharma’s doorstep. But there is nothing to identify her.
Are the two deaths connected? Can Sharma and his team discover the identities of the two victims?
Or could they be about to unravel something even more disturbing…?
