My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sheer Fear is a Jack Lockwood mystery. A very British police themed storyline which has a host of characters who all have a connection. We meet Jack high up on a crane attempting to stop a man committing suicide. David Hart is a wanted man for murder and rape, but Jack believes he’s been set up and vows to do all he can to prove his innocence.
Ex-police office Stephen Romsey contacts Jack with details which could help him prove David’s innocence, but he also opens up a whole new can of worms. Meanwhile Jack’s girlfriend Mary Doyle has gone missing and Jack finds a trail of danger follows him where ever he goes. High end criminals, politician scandals and a mad woman all play their part in this mystery which covers both topical issues and unsolved ones.
