"Ooh I think this is best one in the series yet! Loved it.
Steve Burt and his team are investigating what seems to be a murder case or two and then everything unravels. Lots of trust, secrecy and important people involved and I think this is Steve's biggest pressure yet. Explosive storyline and does not disappoint. All the old favourites from book 1 and 2 make their mark too, making this a brilliant read."

BobsandBooks, Goodreads – 5/5

"I absolutely loved this book and will definitely be reading the others in the series. The story is really well written, full of intrigue and has fast-paced plot twists that are wonderfully unexpected. The writing draws you in and absorbs you through every chapter - you actually feel part of the story at times."

"I have read all of John Reids' books as advance copies, and they get better and better. Good characters and good plotting, and a “complex enough” story makes The Watchers very readable. I finished it in 5 sittings, which is rare for me. This is good police procedural fiction. Well worth a visit.."

Guy Norgrove, Goodreads

"There's something so appealing and enjoyable about this author's books. We feel like we’ve come to know these recurring characters and each new crime they solve is an opportunity to catch up with old friends. Although the style is impassive and dispassionate, the drama is riveting and the suspense intriguing. For the cerebral reader, the smallest detail is attended to as multiple concurrent events converge into an exciting conclusion."

"A clever, very well thought out plot with twists and turns along the way which kept the grey matter nicely active. A wonderful entertaining read."

Misfits Farm, Goodreads

"The sixth In the DCI Steve Burt series and the writing just gets better. Great plot lots of twists and turns. Looking forward to the next one."

Anne M, Amazon

"The Norwich Murders takes Steve Burt out of his comfort zone and presents him another set of unfathomable problems. Steve also has to decide whether he wants a new job and promotion or to stay at Special Resolutions. Murder, corruption and big-time crime all the hallmarks of John Reid's writing make this a hard book to put down."
