    One thought on “Burned and Broken”

    1. This is a bleak, gritty and atmospheric crime story set in Southend on Sea. It depicts a declining seaside town in all its tawdry and seedy entity. The novel is split into three parts. Part one charts the discovery of a burned out car, with a cop, DI Sean Carragher, dead inside it. We go back a few days to meet events and characters prior to this incident. Part two gives us the picture of the investigation led by Frank Pearson and Catherine Russell. Part three takes us to the reveal of what happ [...]

    3. A dead girl. A murdered policeman . A crime worth killing for? The charred body of a policeman is found in the burnt-out car. A vulnerable young woman fresh out of the care system is trying to find out the truth behind the sudden death of her best friend. Will she be able to get the truth that she is looking for?

    4. As a crime fan did this book look very promising. A policeman that is found in a burnt-out car and a young woman that's trying to solve the death of a friend of hers. Intriguing. There are several POV, we have for instance Donna, the young girl that's trying to find someone to help her solve her friend Alicia's death. We also get to follow DS Frank Pearson and DC Catherine "Cat" Russell, as they try to solve the murdered policeman's death.The book starts off first with a prologue where a man is [...]

    5. I’m a huge Peter James fan so was very keen to read this new author who is being recommended if you enjoy those styles of crime thrillers. The story is set in Southend on Sea but to be honest it could have been anywhere as I didn’t get a sense of place as I do when I read about Brighton in the Roy Grace novels. Saying that, I think this series has got off to a good start and it will be interesting to see if the setting develops further now that the characters have been introduced to the read [...]

    6. Burned and Broken is the authors debut novel and as debut’s go it shows a lot of potential from the author.The story gets off to a good start with a man being burned alive in his car. You certainly don’t come across starts like that every day. It certainly grabbed my attention straight away.The story flicks between Donna who is looking for revenge for the death of her friend Alice and the police who are investigating one of their owns death.I have to admit that the parts with Donna in just d [...]

    7. Book reviews on snazzybooks The cover on my copy of this novel states that it will be perfect for fans of Peter James. As a huge Peter James fan, I was instantly intrigued, wondering if this would be true…It definitely is!Burned and Broken is a well-written novel with its fair share of grit and mystery, which follows Southend’s police force as they investigate an array of recent crimes, seemingly separate but perhaps linked in some way – and one of these involves the murder of Detective In [...]

    8. My review was first posted on Northern Plunder, you can read more of my reviews there too.I recieved a copy of this book for review from the publisher to take part in the book tour, which I'm super thankful for but this has no way influenced my opinions on this book.It has been forever since I've read any books in the crime genre and I think I've finally accepted that science-fiction and fantasy are my favourite genres. However, the synopsis of Burned and Broken really appealed to me so I gave i [...]

    10. Really enjoyed the way these two police officers work together and what seemed to me to be a realistic portrayal of police procedure. Just one small point irritated me at the start and that was switching between first names on one page eg Catherine and on the next using her surname so she would be called Russell. For a while I thought there was a character called Russell who I'd missed and kept flipping back to check. That aside, I enjoyed the story and especially how all the elements came toget [...]

    11. This was a weird one. It's multiple point of view by two police involved that includes a lot of stuff about several other police as well as chapters voiced by a young, obviously troubled girl. It all gets a bit messyThe female policewoman is easy to see as is the young girl but there's nothing to distinguish all the men so it wasn't until about 60% into the book when 4 of them were in a room together I could work out who was who. And that makes it hard to care for them. The victim is a fellow po [...]

    12. A burnt out car containing the body of DI Sean Carragher is found on the Southend seafront. His burns are so bad his colleagues can’t even recognise him. What’s more, DI Carragher was the subject of an ongoing internal affairs investigation, which leads the team to many more questions than it answers. DS Pearson and DI Carragher’s ex-partner, DC Catherine (Cat) Russell are tasked with leading the investigation. But the more they dig, the more they realise that they didn’t really know the [...]

    13. The book opens with the horrific scene of DI Sean Carragher burning to death in his car. The discovery of his unrecognisable body in the burnt out vehicle sparks an investigation by DS Frank Pearson and the Essex Police Major Investigation Team. As far as openings go, this is a pretty powerful one, it immediately grabs the reader's attention.The narrative jumps back four days, the author recounts the events leading up to the investigation of DI Carragher's death. During these four days the reade [...]

    15. Debutto sulla lunga distanza per l'inglese Mark Hardie, pubblicato in Italia dall'arrembante neonata casa editrice SEM.Siamo nei territori dell'hard boiled - police procedural, con tutti gli schemi e gli stereotipi della branca del genere, a partire da protagonisti problematici e sfigati e le tematiche trattate (abuso su minori)Mi preme dire immediatamente che non tutto è da buttare, seppure i limiti superino i punti di forza. A partire da un ritmo fiacco, scostante e lento a carburare, reso an [...]

    16. With a gripping prologue, we are launched straight into Burned and Broken with the suspicious death of DI Sean Carragher. DI Carragher is under investigation and when he doesn't turn up for work, it is his partner, DC Cat Russell, who is put under the spotlight, being asked questions about Carragher. When Carragher's body is found in his burned out car, DS Frank Pearson heads up the investigation into the death of one of their own.The story is two-fold, with a young girl, Donna, trying to get so [...]

The powers that be will want answers that don’t damage the reputation of the police force.Simultaneously, a young woman who has recently left the care system is trying to find out what happened to her best friend.Are both cases linked? As Pearson and Russell uncover new details and evide [...]

    18. This is the debut novel by Mark Hardie and the opening to what will surely be a bestselling series featuring DS Frank Pearson and DC Catherine Russell.  The promotional material states that this is a perfect book for those fans of writers such as Peter Robinson, Ian Rankin and Denise Mina, which is a bold statement to make.  All I can say is that this book more than holds its own and I would now say that Mark Hardie is on a par with them.  In fact, he is now one of my favourite authors.The [...]

    19. Mark Hardie’s debut crime novel Burned and Broken marks the promising start to a new contemporary crime series covering issues with a good dose of realism in its seaside setting of Southend.There’s an immediacy to Mark Hardie’s writing which quickly pulled me in and before I knew it, I was immersed. His world isn’t the Southend I know from day trips out of London with ice cream and amusements on the front: the treats in Burned and Broken are far less innocuous and the amusements are hidd [...]

    20. Burned and Broken is an intriguing book right from the start with a prologue that captured my attention and imagination. As D.I. Sean Carragher burns in his car, I had plenty of questions on my mind such as who did it and why. When the author does deliver the answers to those questions, I found them satisfying. One thing that stood out in this book for me was the gritty themes it covers which appeared something different than many other crime novels out there. Not only is there a policeman in fl [...]

    21. We start this book with a death. A burnt out car has been found with a body in it. The body turns out to be DI Sean Carragher. We then rewind a few days and follow Donna as she tries to get to the bottom of what happened to her friend. Deemed accident by the police, she believes there was foul play. We also find out that DI Carragher is being investigated for amongst other things, corruption. His colleagues are being interviewed as he has gone a bit AWOL. Back in the present day, DI Frank Pearso [...]

    22. Burned and Broken is the debut crime novel from Mark Hardie. DC Sean Carragher’s body has been found burned in a car park but what exactly was he involved in that lead to his murder? And more importantly, who did it? Alicia, a vulnerable sixteen year old girl also recently died, but was her death as accidental as it seemed?This was different to other crime novels that I have read (granted that I have not read as many as a lot of other people). This book had two stories working alongside one an [...]

    23. It is always exciting to get the chance to discover a new crime series from the earliest days of publication. A quick look at and I spot that Mark Hardie’s new book Burned and Broken also features the names Pearson and Russell in the title space – a good indicator that the characters are destined to return.Their return would not be unwelcome as I rather enjoyed Burned and Broken when I got into it. A grim opening sequence sees the last few seconds of a man’s life as the car he is sitting [...]

    24. If this were a TV show, it'd be a gritty police drama shown after the watershed with plenty of swearing and moody shots. Set in Essex, the Major Investigation Team are presented with a burned out car containing one of their colleagues, needless to say he was very dead. In a seemingly unrelated narrative we learn about Donna, a teenager fresh out of a care home who is trying to find out what happened to her friend, who was murdered last year. The two story lines meander and finally merge in a gri [...]

    25. Burned and Broken is a fast paced police procedural crime thriller. It has many features lovers of crime fiction will recognise and adore. Sadly it wasn’t entirely for me, as at times I found it slightly old-fashioned and a little bit cliched, with corrupt police and DIs in stained and crumpled suits. I also felt as if the author had researched so thoroughly that he wanted to ensure the reader had even the smallest detail so that sometimes description got in the way of the events. There seemed [...]

    26. The story starts with a rather brutal prologue which sets the scene for this dark and gritty crime novel which investigates the murder of a serving police officer and the unexplained the death of a vulnerable young woman who has recently left the care system. On the surface these two deaths should be unrelated but as the Essex Police Major Investigation Team find out, nothing is ever as it should be when dealing with the complexities of major crime incidents. Set in the seaside town of Southend- [...]

    27. I do like a good crime novel, you know the kind, one you can lose yourself in for hours whilst the story weaves in and out, keeping you guessing and when I was offered the chance to read Burned and Broken I jumped at it as it features a few things that I love in a gritty crime novel.Those things aree British setting, I love reading books set in an area I can relate to and the long British arm of the law, our boys (and girls) in blue always seem to be rougher round the edges than their North Amer [...]

    28. A man trapped in a car who was then burnt to death and disfigured so badly he was unrecognisable was a good start to this novel. We're then taken back a few days to the time before the death, introduced to the two main characters, DS Frank Pearson and DC Cat Russell (who both have their own issues to resolve) and given another story line, running alongside, about a young girl who'd recently left the care system who was trying to find answers about her friend's death. So far, so good, but unfortu [...]

    29. Hardie's novel is an imposing and stirring debut.Both intriging and gripping but littered with unnecessary coarseness in language. it starts with an horrific fire death that begins the investigation of Pearson and Russell.This is a superb start to this, what I hope to be a brilliant series.Burned and Broken is fabulously written. It's smooth clever plot reels the reader in and is totally absorbing in its tale. There is a lot of specific elements and Hardie's writing technique makes this tale wor [...]

    30. A promising debut in what could be a fresh but gritty Essex-set series of police procedurals. The author isn't afraid to tackle controversial storylines, like grooming vulnerable children for sex, the mental health of said children, and a-possibly-bent copper who's just been killed. But who's responsible for his death? And who's involved with, and hosting, the sex parties? The main characters, DS Frank Pearson and DC Cat Russell, are original and I look forward to getting to know them better. An [...]
