Based on a real event- a young policeman gets involved with the wife of a drug dealer who then mysteriously disappears.

A young policeman (Bryn Lawton) is reluctantly stationed in a remote Welsh village. He is an outsider. He is unhappy in his life. He meets and strikes up a relationship with a visitor (Fiona Henley) who's husband is a violent London drug-dealer. Bryn's life spirals out of control when, whilst driving home drunk one evening he believes he knocked down and killed a girl. the only witness is Fiona's husband. So, now under the cosh Bryn is forced to assist in various drug related things, such as distroying evidence and setting up the competition. One evening he visits Fiona and hears her having an arguement with her husband so he sneaks away - hearing the sound of him hitting her as he does so. The following morning her husband reports Fiona missing. A couple of weeks later Bryn is called to the home of a recluse who lives in the forest. He finds the man dead and on searching the hovel he discovers Fiona's favourite coat, her 'tiger coat'. The recluse has a madman brother who has recently escaped - was he the killer and not her husband?? Bryn has to wait ten years to get the answers.

Read the first couple of chapters - I am enjoying it. It is so out of the ordinary and like someone aleady said it is an unusual take on the genre. I am backing the book and I will be back to finish it Tony Can I be cheeky and ask you to take a look at 'The Tiger Coat' and offer your opinions T view book
