Horse to Water by Peter Bailey is a superb thought-provoking crime mystery with the scene set in London, right on the doorstep of New Scotland Yard. Approaching his car parked at the North entrance of New Scotland Yard, DCI Archer stops to read a message on his phone. The message blames him for Operation Bulwark, which had ruined good lives. The next moment his car explodes. DCI David Taplin, who had worked in the team of detectives led by DCI Archer, is appointed to investigate the explosion and the attempted murder of DCI Archer. The investigation takes Taplin and his team through a maze of puzzling and unexpected events and discoveries. What was Operation Bulwark? Who planted the bomb in DCI Archer’s car?
Reading Horse to Water by Peter Bailey, I thoroughly enjoyed investigating this case with DCI David Taplin and his team. Offering more than a purely entertaining read, this is a genuinely unputdownable, action-packed, fast-paced, suspenseful story generously laced with hilarious subtle humor. Central to the story is the high price paid by victims of mistakes in police investigations. In addition, the multifaceted prism of DCI Taplin’s analysis offers thought-provoking exposure to the social ills that impact the crime rates and the public image of the police. I highly recommend it to a broad adult audience and fans of crime fiction, action thrillers, and suspenseful mysteries.
