'The first in a new series of gritty crime thrillers featuring Detective Sergeant Kate Power, from an author who has already proved her worth in the female crime - writer genre.' South Wales Argus on Staying Power; 'The most imaginative and dashingly-plotted yet of Cutler's novels featuring Birmingham DS Kate Power' The Times Crime Supplement on Staying Power; 'What really makes the Kate Power novels different is the fact that the doughty sergeant is constantly at war with male chauvinists...
