Caring For Justice : A Justice novella featuring the original cast members, yes, Pete is back!
DI Lorne Simpkins and her partner, Pete Childs have one of their toughest cases to crack in this fast paced novella.
Someone is intent on attacking pensioners in their own homes. Can Lorne and Pete put an end to these heinous crimes? Or will someone else intervene to give the investigation a helping hand?
“Ted, Ted, is that you, dear?” His gran’s croaky voice filtered into the hallway from the lounge at the rear of her bungalow.
He poked his head around the door of the lounge and smiled. “It is. Want a cuppa?”
“That would be lovely. I can’t remember the last time I had a drink.”
He shook his head, mortified that his gran’s memory appeared to be getting worse with each passing day. He’d toyed with the idea of moving in with her but was reluctant to give up his independence as much as she was with hers. He’d tentatively broached the subject with her a few months ago, but she’d waved away his concerns and after a while had agreed to accepting help from a carer.
Ted had sprung into action and organised a carer to visit his gran a couple of times a week. She seemed happy enough with the situation, as it meant she could stay in her own home, which was an extra bonus.
He poured the tea into the china cup and saucer she preferred to use and filled a mug he kept at her house for himself, then joined his gran in the lounge.
“Here you go, petal. Just the way you like it, not too weak and not too strong, somewhere in between.”
