Welcome to my spot on the blog tour for Retribution by Heaton Wilson. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on the tour. Let me know what you think in the comments.
An ex-soldier is mown down in a brutal hit and run. Was it an accident, or an act of murder?
DCI Jane Birchfield isn’t sure. She is struggling to stay focussed after a surprise marriage proposal, and is still waiting for news about a promotion. But she has to push it all to one side as the investigation swiftly escalates into the biggest challenge she has ever faced, bringing her into conflict with her superiors, her partner, and the British Army. She’s tested to the absolute limit, and for the very first time, finds herself asking whether it’s worth the sacrifice. Can she survive the pressure as the harsh reality of military conflict hits the streets of Ashbridge?
Retribution by Heaton Wilson is the third book in the DCI Jane Birchfield series. This is not my first read from this author, so when I had an opportunity to read this one, I jumped at the chance.
Heaton Wilson is a skillful author who writes plots full of suspense and intrigue. I was thoroughly entertained from the first to the last page. I love the pace and the perfectly placed twists that kept this story surprising.
The characters are excellent. I enjoy the team, and Jane is an interesting character.
A great read! Looking forward to more from this author.

I have been a newspaper journalist, a postman, a public relations officer, a consultant, an actor, a director, a playwright. And I have always kept writing.
I always felt I could write a novel. And I did! The first book in my crime fiction series featuring DCI Jane Birchfield, Every Reason, came out in 2016. Whatever It Takes was published in 2021; and the third book (which follows on where Whatever It Takes ends) is nearing completion.
I’m from Manchester but now live on the Isle of Wight, where the sea is never far away. It’s the perfect place to be creative, and to walk the dogs.
