#BOOKBLITZ | The Forgotten Gun – John Reid @BurtDCI @lovebooksgroup @lovebookstours #Booktour #TheForgottenGunTour

A Metropolitan Police detective about to be dismissed is given a second chance by his old boss, who is now a police commander. He’s given a new unit to run and two misfit detectives to assist him. All three know their status is temporary. 

Their first case together is an impossible double murder. Each murder is identical. Both victims are expertly shot in the head from long range, but the post-mortems reveal no bullets were used in the shootings. The CSI teams calculate that in both cases there was no place for the marksman to have fired from, unless suspended over busy roads. 

Although it’s a case apparently impossible to solve, DCI Steve Burt reluctantly agrees to investigate with his new team. Their enquires lead them into the murky world of greed, corruption, fraud and money laundering, but they are no nearer solving the murders. The team is stumped until the DCI meets a retired army major and a WW2 veteran who unwittingly hold the keys to solving these impossible murders

The Forgotten Gun by John Reid | Goodreads


The author was born in Scotland and after serving in the army embarked on a career in industry and commerce. He has worked in several different sectors of business mostly in senior roles and latterly as CEO of a large international data capture company. 

He retired for the first time in 1995 but continued to work as a consultant helping new businesses become established. In 2018, he finally retired from business life to become a full-time author. John lives in the UK and Portugal with his wife and they have two grown-up sons. 

John has used the DCI Steve Burt series to get involved with Sense, a great charity that supports anyone living with complex disabilities. Sense helps people communicate and experience the world. They, like John, believe that no one, no matter how complex their disabilities, should be isolated, left out, or unable to fulfill their potential.
