Dan Hellier makes his entrance in BA Steadman's novel Death and Deception,
I liked Dan, although he certainly had his issues and a lot to learn.
The story was strong and started with finding the body of a teen, who is popular, but maybe not liked by all.
There are two main storylines that run through this book and Hellier's job with his team is to determine the connection.
The support characters are well placed and I found them likeable, there is humour and banter where needs be, and Hellier is trying to find his feet in this new team.
I enjoyed the pace of the book, found it easy to follow without being too steeped in extra details and procedures.
I have by accident read the second book, Death and the Good Son first, they can be read as stand alones, however as always it is better to read a series in order.
I am looking forward to catching up with Hellier and his team in book 3.
